I had my eye on this Gingko tree for several days before the right conditions presented themselves for this photograph. The tree fairly glowed in the heavy fog at sunrise and I had only a few minutes to set up and get the image. Within 5-6 minute the fog burned off and this special moment was gone.

I spent several mornings this summer photographing in a field of sunflowers. I arrived at sunrise and wandered among them looking for different compositions. After spending an hour or so going for the obvious images, I would  begin to seek out images that challenged my thinking and revealed aspects of the flowers that was a bit different.

Late this November, after a long day of photography in North Alabama, I packed up my gear, hoisted my pack and began the hike to my car. I had not gone far along the river bank when I noticed these maple leaves. They were on a small sapling growing out from the boulders near the rivers edge. I stopped, dropped my pack and set up the tripod again. The right composition wasn’t readily visible and I found myself working around the leaves until I settled on this composition. Sometimes just telling myself that I am done for the day releases my creativity and I see images I might otherwise have walked past. Often I find that I start back down the trail and spot something else to photograph over and over again all the way back. A thirty minute hike can turn into an hour and a half without even being aware of the passing of time.

You know you are doing something you love when you can’t stop. No matter how tired and hungry you are….

Fine art photographs of nature can make powerful statements as single images.

They are often the focal point of interest for an entire room. Bringing together images that work as sets or groupings is also an effective way to extend the ambiance and flow of nature images throughout a design.
When choosing photographs to be used as sets or groupings it is a good idea to select images that have a common theme and color. The theme can extend to patterns and textures as well as subject. The theme can extend to patterns and textures as well as subject. It is even more striking if they have a common style and feel. This often means working with one photographic artist for the entire set. I have had many instances where all of the images were shot on the same day and even represent different compositions of the same subject.

Above and below are a couple of very popular groupings that we have helped our clients with.

Time and location form the framework for this work. The season, the hour and the surroundings come together to create the color palette and water is the liquid canvas for my water abstracts.

I was recently honored to be interviewed by Cindy Sanders of the Nashville Medical News in regards to the use of nature photography in healthcare facilities.

“….the calming benefits of artwork extend beyond patient rooms and treatment or diagnostic areas. Indeed, he noted, nurses and physicians are also subjected to high-stress environments, and evidence shows providers benefit from the soothing effects of nature photography … particularly when a window to the outside isn’t feasible for a workstation. Ultimately, Jorjorian said, he has always believed nature and nature photography were essential to a person’s sense of wellbeing. “To have the evidence begin to back that up and then see its acceptance in healthcare facilities is even more rewarding for me…..”

Silvanus Abstract of trees reflecting in the surface of a river in the fall Image # 110108-105

I usually blog about nature and my photographic art but I just had to take a moment to recognize the outstanding musical art created by Zoë Keating. She is a superb classically trained cello player who uses a process she refers to as layering to build mesmerizing soundscapes. She creates these layers upon layers of music from snippets of her playing recorded by her computer and then played back while she is performing. All in realtime! It is a process not totally unlike what I as a photographic artist do in Photoshop to finish an image in layers. Her pieces often sound like an entire orchestra even though they originate entirely from her cello, her computer scripts and her mindboggling sense of timing. I highly recommend her music for anyone.

What does this have to do with my photographic art? I find that listening to music as I prepare for my photography gets my creative juices flowing. Zoë’s music is my go to choice to set the stage for my photographic image creation!
