Scary. Or Knot.
This photo was created completely in-camera while I was taking the picture.
I loved the animated shape of this fruit tree, with its branches that look like arms and its energetic swaying in the wind. I moved and shimmied the camera as I took this picture, to try to get a photo that emphasizes that feeling of motion and aliveness in an appealing way. After many, many attempts, this shot gave me the feeling I was looking for. Thank goodness for digital photography; trying to create this with slide film would have cost an arm and a leg!
This image reminds me of the feeling I get when Snow White is running through the forest, but then, I think it's not as scary as that, and it's actually rather beautiful and somewhat reminds me of a happy, free-spirited dance. Hence, the title.
This photo is huge and dramatic with a very strong presence and needs a large wall with a fair amount of light to be displayed at its best.
CanopyKinesis Photo Series
This photo is part of a series of photographs about trees, leaves, forests, and woodlands, called CanopyKinesis, all of which are printed on luminescent, high gloss aluminum sheets. In a departure from my generally realistic landscape scenes, the photos in this series are mostly semi- and fully abstract. Each piece depicts an emotional-figurative aspect of the arboreal landscape, rather than attempting to be a faithful representation of a specific place.
The images in this series were created by combining in-camera manipulations (camera movement, multiple and over-exposures, changing focus during exposure, etc.) and post-production digital painting techniques.
