Tilt-Shift Photography

Tilt-shift photography refers to the process in which the camera is manipulated to make a life-sized subject look like a miniature-scale model. Cameras and special lenses can be used to shift the most focused part of an image to create unique and interesting effects. When you tilt the lens, you point it at a slightly different angle from the typical straight approach, and when you shift the lens, you’re moving it up or down to achieve the desired effect. At one time, all cameras were tilt-shift cameras until compact cameras became popular, at which point, the tilt/shift mechanism was too expensive to add to the existing lens. These days, you need a special lens to do tilt-shift photography.

David Cabillot's Talking Sticks

The Native American talking stick is a symbol of respect, used during tribal council meetings to keep order and demonstrate courtesy. Only the person holding the stick may talk; everyone else must wait their turn until the stick is passed to them. Crafted by hand and typically made of natural materials such as leather, antler, and wood, and decorated with feathers, crystals, and gemstones, talking sticks are fun to collect and make great gifts. If you're looking for rustic Southwest decor ideas, you will love these unique pieces. The Sedona Artist Market is happy to feature artist David Cabillot, who creates unique talking sticks that are hand-beaded with a variety of materials. Stop by Davi

Malachite: The Stone of Transformation

Cuff bracelet from Mary Navajo's booth Malachite is a deep-green opaque gemstone that has been used in jewelry and ornamental pieces for thousands of years. Its distinctive parallel bands and rings make it easy to identify. This mineral rock usually comes from copper mines after all the copper has been removed. The copper is responsible for the beautiful green color of malachite. The color does not fade over time or when exposed to light, which makes it a good material to use as a coloring agent. Ancient Egyptians ground it up to use as green pigment and eye shadow. Malachite was believed to improve vision and provide deeper insight. The mesmerizing color of malachite color is said to impart

The Mad Potter's Mud Babies

( George Ohr, born in 1857 in Biloxi, Mississippi, learned his father's trade of blacksmith, but he hated it. He tried over a dozen other positions before a friend gave him a job as a potter. George fell in love with the potter's wheel and developed a unique style that set him far apart from his contemporaries. George experimented with shapes as well as glazes. Some of his pieces had ruffles, some had fluted edges, others had borders made of his thumbprints. Many of his vessels were extremely thin. However, his work was only appreciated by a select few. Only George himself seemed to recognize

Julie March: Re-CreARTed

Julie March has dabbled creatively with many different forms over the years, from pottery and writing to gardening and interior design, sewing, painting, and many gray areas in between... She is also a "treasure hunter" and loves to find used items and integrate them into creative projects. That is how ReCre-ARTed began to evolve. "When out and about at thrift stores, yard sales, etc., I gather bits and pieces that I sense may grow into something, never knowing what that may be." Most of the materials Julie uses are secondhand--including paint, glue, nails, and most of the tools. "I find joy in the alchemy of using some of the excess stuff that we all seem to have through creating unique con

Leila Kirkley: Still Life Painter

Art is Leila Kirkley's third career. After working for 11 years in mental health and 25 years as a psychotherapist, she had high standards for her next career as a still life painter. Leila's philosophy is that "painting an object that is inherently beautiful will only succeed in making it look banal." "I'm not at all attracted to elaborate antiques or exotic settings," Leila says. "To me, high art is imbuing simple objects with uncommon beauty and life through arrangement, edges, composition, and color." According to Leila, still life should be anything but "still." "My point of view is often straight on at eye level, which is typical of my approach to life." Leila doesn't begin with detai
