Art Exhibits: May 2013
"Seeing the Light" consists of seven landscape photographs taken over the past few years.
These photographs were taken either early in the morning or late in the day when natural light and colors can be most compelling. Several images are of dramatic scenery in the US southwest, including Death Valley, Mounment Valley and Canyon de Chelly.
Other images are of less dramatic landscapes: an early morning photograph of Sippiwissett Marsh taken from the Falmouth Bike Trail; a flock of geese flying across a strange ochre sunset in Kakadu, Australia; and patches of fog on the Sudbury River taken late on a winter afternoon from the Pelham Island Bridge.
The photos were taken with a Sony DSLR with 16 Megapixels and a 16-105 mm zoom lens. The images have been printed at home with an Epson Stylus printer on Epson Premium Lustre Paper. I use Apple's Aperture software to adjust the images. I've adjusted exposure and dodged and burned parts of the images, but the colors are unchanged from the original RAW image files.
While I have dabbled in photography all my life, it became a major focus since my retirement from a career in science and technology in 2007. In addition to landscapes, my favorite subjects are street portraits of people I encounter in and around Boston and during travel.
