Photographic Blends: Studies in Light, Time, and Perspective
On Exhibit at Shirlington Branch Library, March 2015
My photographic images are landscape compositions made from multiple photographs blended together to create unusual views beyond what is actually “seen” in the camera. Blends can be day-to-night, panoramic, or time-lapsed. My photographs have focused on landscape and nature images where I want to capture a full range of light and color across wide panoramas and complex scenes. The work is fully digital and involves a complicated workflow to stitch, blend and color enhance each scene. The finished images range from single shots to blends of 100s of individual images combined to provide the viewer a unique visual perspective.
I began creating photographic art images in 2011 after a 25-year hiatus from photography. I developed my technical skill in digital imaging as a radio astronomer. When I started working with digital photography, I found I could apply my digital imaging experience to create new perspectives for viewing images. I particularly like to show scenes as stereographic projections, called “little planets.” My work has been shown at the Del Ray Artisans, Art in City Hall, and at the Athenaeum in Alexandria. I have received two best-in-show awards at Del Ray Artisans shows including the XXth Anniversary show in March 2012 and the Revolution: Art & Technology show in April 2014. I had a solo exhibit at the Convergence Gallery in Alexandria in September/October 2014.
