Seeing is believing…

The inspiration? From Leicalady of course! Her recent paintings have inspired me to ponder and experiment in some non-traditional photography. I have really enjoyed the realistic impression of HDR processing over the last year. However, I have been encouraged to pursue a more “artistic” angle.

My recent images are very abstract. They have to be about color or the lack of it. I have to work from an original photograph that I like. That is sometimes very difficult for the original image often times does not lend itself to the process I am experimenting with. The final image is a synthesis of my personal feelings – it has to create a mood! Simplicity and serenity are usually inherent…

William Morris Hunt, the great American painter of the 19th century said “You cannot suit everybody, so you better suit yourself.” Well said, I like these…      (after and before)
