what are you gonna do with your life?

, originally uploaded by Joseph Orsillo.

I have often been told that my work has no real theme, no cohesion, and I guess my latest images seem to support that theory. I can't hep it. I guess I have some form of ADD, but I can't seem to stay with one style very long. As you may have noticed, much of my work for the last few months has been very distressed and dirty. I call it 'antique' but who really cares. While I still really like those images, when I set out to make these latest ones, I couldn't help but try to make them as pristine as possible. I used my sharpest lens (60mm macro), paid much attention to the lighting, and used Mr. Margolis' techniques to showcase color and detail. I am very happy with the results. Maybe its because I have been studying the Modernist style, but in any case I love the delicate detail in these dry flowers. This one is my favorite from the series. I think it might be because the stem looks like Jack Skellington's leg. So tell me, what AM I going to do with my life???

Okay, I promise this is the last time I will mention this silly video.  I finally have the full video hosted on my own site, and it is large enough to actually see what is going on.  If you are still interested you can check it out here.
