Background is just as important in a photo.
Two days ago I took my camera and went for a walk. The sun, clouds and time of day was perfect to catch a few new photos. When a took these the I paid special attention to the natural light and how the light not only shown on the subject, but what happened to the background. Although you can not make out what is actually in the background I love the colors that make the image pop.
Some people may say there is nothing special about the background. For me the backgrounds in these two photo are a perfect example of an abstract painting. Nature can't go wrong mixing the colors just right for any subject.
Take a look around! Spring is the best time to see everything come alive again. Everything is so fresh and new.
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.
