My CotM Sketchbook - Spring of 2018

A Living Diorama

10 years, 3 months, 27 days later and I am officially back in the exhibits game. Monday I report in at 9AM to get my Cave of Mounds staff shirt. I just bought blue outdoor pants on my way home from my first meeting with them a few hours ago. On Tuesday of last week I heard about an opportunity there. After careful thought I then presented my portfolio and an idea to the staff. It worked. I'm hired! It's a new beginning for me. I am so thrilled to be working with passionate folks who are obviously so invested in preserving and presenting a National Landmark! I have this giant, LIVING diorama to get to know and work on. On top is an ancient Oak Savannah to save. Underneath is a cavern whose depths I've only seen from the tourists' perspective. I am going to bet that I won't sleep tonight...

    An Angry Beaver Indeed!
    An Angry Beaver Indeed!

    It was indeed an ANGRY BEAVER day! So many frustrating "life" things all happening at once. Then there's knowing know one will ever know I spent hours setting up this shot. Hours spent modifying how light comes out of the five flashes that I painstakingly placed "just so." Shaping their effects into razor edges to just touch certain edges will never be noticed. Few will note the ever tightening spirals in the composition. "It's only a photograph. Anyone can take that shot." Friggin beaver... Why so edgy? It was a struggle to not just blast it with hammers of light. But as a well versed man in taming an angry beaver I knew a little "calm, heated finesse" was all it'd take.
