Composition. It's what I try to get right every time I look through my lens. Balancing light, texture and color are so important to me. Sometimes I like my subject so much that I try talking myself into liking it even when it's missing the elements for a perfect composition. Eventually I end up deleting it and know that there will be many more opportunities that perfect photo. The richness and subtle light of the greens in these new seedling photos are just what I need as I wait for some consistent spring weather to make its way to Michigan. Did you know you could order these prints? In fact you can order any of my photos you find on my website in any size. I especially like them mounted on a bamboo stand-out board. Email me for more information and pricing.
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
