Last day of review 2019-Painting with light

January 03, 2020  •  1 Comment

It is often said that photography is "writing with light". These are what I call "painting with light". It's a favorite technique I use to create unique images, images that are more about expressing the feel of the scene, and giving an impression of the light, color and design, rather than documenting exactly what I see. It involves lots of trial and error and no two images are alike. Once in a while I get an image or two that really work, frequently I get nothing and a lot of pixels give their lives in the effort. Most often, however I get absorbed in the process and that is the best part - whether or not I come away with a successful image. It's all about the creative process which I am grateful to participate in.

So, this is the last sample of my favorites for 2019. Thank you for looking and your kind feedback. It's time to get out there and create again! If you are interested in seeing more I invite you to visit my website. See my entire selection of 2019 favorites here. All in all it was a very good year.

Happy New Year everyone! May the muse be with you!

2019 Favorite Landscapes

I don't shoot that many landscapes but I am pleased with these from this past year. I think they convey a sense of place and bring back memories of beautiful locations I was fortunate to visit.

Experiments that worked!

These are a few of my favorites because they were experiments that worked! In some cases I tried some entirely new technique and in others it was using a familiar technique in a new way that worked. Best seen larger by clicking. I hope you enjoy.

Looking back, looking forward 2019 in review

December 30, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

Wow! 2019 is just about over and the end of the year is a good time to reflect on the past, be in the present and look forward to the future with hope. I have been doing a year-end review of images since 2015 and selecting my best and favorites. I believe in being selective and only choosing those which bring me the most joy. Interestingly there are nearly twice as many as the next highest year. So, for the next few days I will be sharing some of those images here. At the end of the week I will include a link to where you can see them all.

Since the year started with a bird photo that truly is a beauty I will start this post with it and by sharing some of my favorite bird photos of 2019. Enjoy!
