About the Image

Willow Burst

I photographed this lush willow tree with millions of elongate leaves by moving the lens slightly during a long exposure, resulting in the appearance of flowing movement.

Later, in Photoshop, I added tints and highlighting to give it its surreal and somewhat underwater feel.

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.

About Photos on Metal

Photos on Metal are created by a special process that infuses the image into specially coated aluminum sheets that have a durable high gloss finish, creating a brilliant, lasting artwork that seems to glow from within.
