This photo was created by digitally cutting parts of an original photo of a forest and pasting them back onto the photo repeatedly in Photoshop.
Sometimes, the distinct edges of the collaged elements seem to come together like facets of a jewel, giving this photo a somewhat stained glass appearance.
When trying to decide on a title for this photo, a 20 something year old friend said this picture reminds him of a gem and the name of it should be that of a beautiful and powerful woman. He suggested "Anastasia" and the name stuck.
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.
