If I was a Painter I would Paint…..
There are certain times when I’m out photographing that I don’t feel like simply clicking the shutter to record what’s in front of me. Maybe the light is a little off, maybe the trees are a little less white or maybe I don’t see the composition I want. During these moments, I use my camera differently and see the forest of aspens differently. I look for patterns, contrasts and interesting shapes. I then paint the image I want with my camera.
I won’t go into technical details on how the images were made but I’ll tell you I don’t use Photoshop and these images took less than 2 minutes to edit. Give it a try sometime when you’re out shooting and maybe you’ll see the forest or a field of flowers in a different way. The scene doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful, it’s what and how you see that’s important.
