This presentation reflects our fascination with water, exploring an array of images that capture aspects of its beauty, mystery, energy and variety. Water has so many qualities to entice our interest. Perhaps most compelling is its extraordinary variations:
Dewdrop, rain, stream, waterfall, surf
Opaque, translucent, transparent
Prismatic, refractive, reflective
Still, flowing, churning, raging
Solid, liquid, vapor
These variations offer diverse opportunities and challenges for creating engaging images to these, sunlight at different times of day, times of year, and angles - with varied colors, shapes and textures in the surrounding landscapes. This provides a recipe for endless fascination and exploration in our photographic endeavors. This presentation will cover aesthetic, practical and technical aspects of photographing water.
David’s passion for nature photography reemerged in 2003 when advances in digital technology finally allowed him to pursue his artistic interests without a darkroom. David began exhibiting and selling his work in 2006, while living in western Massachusetts. His first solo exhibit after moving to metro Atlanta was at the Decatur Library in 2008. Since then, his images have been part of more than 50 exhibitions - including solo, juried and group shows - in the Southeast and beyond. David’s photographs are held in private and public collections across the United States and internationally. Read more...
