I am following Nature without being able to grasp her … ~ Claude Monet

By stripping away the familiar characteristics of color, black and white photography of nature reveals something new. It highlights a different aspect of the relationships between shapes, form, contrast and composition in the natural world.

I recently added a black and white gallery to the website you can view it HERE

“Everything you can imagine is real.” – Pablo Picasso

Most of my photography features almost no photoshop manipulation. Usually just cleanup of dust and slight contrast and saturation adjustments to get a result similar to what I used to achieve with film. This image however, is purely from my imagination….

“Nature is not only what is visible to the eye – it also presents the inner pictures of the soul – the images on the reverse side of the eye.” (Edvard Munch)

 

When I explore the smaller details of nature with my camera I am in reality experiencing the moment fully and expressing that experience as an image.

The artist in me is drawn to water. It is formless and shapeless while assuming all of the shapes and forms it flows into. It reflects the environment and reveals secrets hidden beneath its’ surface.

One of the most rewarding things about the art of photography for me lies in finding a new and different way of seeing the familiar. One day in late fall I was wandering around a small waterfall. I stopped for a moment to absorb and observe the moment. I stood there  mesmerized by the sound and the motion. Gradually this composition evolved before me and I was moved to create this image.

I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.  ~John Muir

This image was created while exploring the structure of this plant on a hillside  one morning. I take as much joy in these macro explorations as I do in my larger scale nature photographic treks.

“The artist is the confidant of nature, flowers carry on dialogues with him through the graceful bending of their stems and the harmoniously tinted nuances of their blossoms. Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him”. ~Auguste Rodin

The surprise lily is one of my favorite flowers. The petals almost look like brush strokes. There is great joy in exploring a flower and discovering all the possibilities among the patterns, shapes and colors. It is the easiest way I know to get into the creative “zone”.

“An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day. ” Henry David Thoreau

I love hiking in the forest in deep fog. Sometimes finding images in these conditions can be difficult at first. This is especially true if you have a preconceived idea of what you will see and photograph.  I have found however, that if I accept the fog, the light and the obscured view, images abound….
