This year I'm trying to work on showing my photography with correct light. I'm going to try to be a bit more picky as to the composition and quality of my photography. Lighting will be and is a very important part of making my total composition beautiful. The top and bottom show that well. Although the lighting is not as strong in the middle photo, I think the softness of the background really compliments the torn white money plant.
I also will be very selective as to the photos I keep on file. I'll be picking one or two each time I come back after a photo shoot. I would love to say I'll be going out once a day for this whole year, but I'm not sure I could keep that promise. I will say, "I'll try to come close."
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.
