DRAWING FROM NATURE

     During the  time of quarentine, I am taking long walks through the nature preserve that surrounds my home to record details that catch my eye. I used a Lensbaby on my Sony mirrorless. Being originally a painter I love Photoshop. The combination of Photoshop and photography has enabled me to make photos that look like abstract paintings. I cant tell you what tools I use to arrive at these images because there are so many actions and layers. Im an experimenter or as ive said tongue in cheek, an abstract expressionist photographer. The paper I print on is an antique lithography paper that was gifted me a few years back. It lends a quality of pastel to the inkjet print that greatly enhances the images.  I then go back into it with pastel to emphasis this quality. These are printed on antique lithography paper. / July 2020
