A taste of flamenco

"Monkeys Push Buttons, Humans Push Their Brains." A very interesting quote I found in the famous photoshop book "Photoshop Channel Chops", by photoshop gurus David Biedny and Bert Monroy.

Last friday both Suby and his humble Skeeness attended a day long Adobe photoshop seminar by Bert Monroy. Boy his work is awesome...real awesome!

It's monday, Skee's back to his low light photography. I'm going to work on a couple of digital paintings this week as well so watch out :-)

At the moment for my low light stuff I use 2 lenses, the 50mm f1.4 usm and the 85mm f1.2L both by canon and I shoot mostly at iso 1600.

Ok, now for alittle history:

Flamenco
is one of the great European nonacademic musical forms. More than simply a type of folk music, flamenco embodies a complex musical and cultural tradition. Although considered part of the culture of Spain in general, flamenco is really specifically a product and part of the culture of one region in Spain - Andalusia. There are many questions remaining about the roots of flamenco, but it is generally acknowledged that flamenco grew out of the unique interplay of native Andalusians, Islamic, Sephardic, and Gypsy cultures that existed in Andalucia prior to and after the Reconquest (The process encompassing almost 8 centuries, by which the Christian kingdoms of northern Hispania (modern Portugal and Spain) reconquered the Iberian peninsula from the Muslim and Moorish states of Al-Ándalus.)

Skee's back tomorrow...

Lovely work bro.

Flamenco is a relatively recent and highly sophisticated art form whose roots go back no more than 200 years, a bit like the Argentine tango, an urban tradition with a short time-line. Cheesey Spanish folk music goes back much further, but flamenco is not folk music.
