Color

Color is very much about atmosphere and emotion and the feel of a place. - Alex Webb

My primary art form and creative outlet has been photography for the last few years. I have taken several classes from the Rocky Mountain School of Photography and have taken thousands of images. With all that, you'd think I would be a pro by now. Not so! I am still amazed at how hard it is to make a image with impact and how easy it is to completely mess it up. When I look at my favorite images, I see a few recurring themes. When I am shooting just for the sake of art (as opposed to documenting an event or place) I am attracted to abstract forms and color. These images are all about color and line, the actual item being photographed is not relevant to the final image. In reviewing these images, I am reminded of how much pleasure I got in making them. I really must spend more time with my camera. If you would like to see more of my macro photography, please visit my SmugMug page.
