Regarding photo art, the purpose of an initial camera capture isn’t to document, it is to become something else. Post-capture is used by photo artists (because of technology, now including all of us) to create any amount of pictures (Variations photography) away from the original. This is what Mrs. Carveth does with photography.



All photography and post-capture tampering on this site by Jessie Carveth, unless noted.

2. Nothing here is committed. Pages are routinely revised. For example, variations 10-20 of up photography will be replaced by var 24-30.

Not much on Mrs. Carveth’s 12th website stays put. Titles, truth, syntax, fonts, clipart, profile pics, disclosures, opinions.

Away from the internet, too, she isn’t fixed at any location (unless it regards the four+ babies). In real life, she doesn’t look the same from day to day, not on purpose. Something about variety (there is so much? don’t be wasteful with potential? Choice is not a burden.)

3. Thumbnails scattered around. arrowupgray-48x48Tap or click to enlarge.

4. Nothing is copyright. Mrs. Carveth doesn’t care what’s stolen, screenshot, saved, renamed. Grab it, call it yours, whatever. She doesn’t care.



Multiple versions of an initial capture are produced in a short amount of time because photography isn’t paint and brushes, it’s a machine with a button, and software.

5.  Only very recently have professional and/or well-known photographers, and accountants, mothers, brothers, dentists, and everyone else in the world had access to photography technology, for both document and photo art.

What’s remarkable is how quickly those who become serious about any kind of photography achieve a level of skill that used to belong to professional photographers.



At the precipice of meaninglessness, Dominic stretches.
