Beyond – new series and new approach

I’m always looking for new ways of creating images and expanding my perception pf photography.  Recently I’ve been looking for ways to create images that encompass formats and techniques that span the history of photography.  The Beyond series is a new approach to image making for me.  The images in the series are comprised of […]

Does the World Need Another Pretty Picture?

Lone Cottonwood

Lone Cottonwood   Cottonwood Here again are two different takes on the same subject.  Cottonwood is more of an environmental portrait of the tree.  It gives you a sense of where it lives and the color adds reality to the image.  In Lone Cottonwood the environment  is minimized and the color is stripped away leaving […]
