“Exaggerate the essential, leave the obvious vague.”
~ Vincent Van Gogh
One of my favorite techniques in photography is to experiment with movement when shooting an image. These images were made using Shutter Priority at 1/10 or 1/20 and moving the camera slightly while pressing the shutter. It’s a fun diversion and interesting creative challenge.
“A good impression is lost so quickly.”
~ Claude Monet
This abstract image of azaleas was made by zooming the lens as I was shooting.
“The job of the impressionist painter is to say just enough without forcing the story on the viewer… detail kills imagination.”
~ Colley Whisson
