Here's a couple of images from my scouting trip to Calistoga last month with early morning mist providing the atmosphere
Here's a few images from the scouting session in Napa.
The top two pictures are the old Bale Grist Mill, near Calistoga and the bottom image is, yup, more of those tangled tree images I love from a forest surrounding the grist mill.
If you'd be interested in a workshop you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate you're workshop interest... I'll put you on the email list for the workshop info.
I love this time of year. The tree limbs are all still bare with just a hint of new growth or buds beginning to appear. With the right light, a still day and a small camera aperture I'm able to explore natures infinite designs and inherent textures as the branches stack up near to far. The depths of the scene contract and the branches paint a JacksonPollock like canvas on my camera sensors... I just love it.
I think that the warm spring-like days we've had in the Northwest recently have kindled hopes for the end of winter and the beginning of spring,.. but hey, it's only mid-February! While the notion of spring this early may be a false hope, it did provide the inspiration for this new image.
"Ode to Spring"
I've been working hard completing some recent assignment photography, organizing my new space and applying to lots of 2010 art shows, and when I get a moment, I turn to my image library to see what inspires me (and what can distract me). This month is was birds. I don't know why but they are so iconic, stately and mystical all at once. Here are the results:
Blue Heron Grace
Pelicans in Flight
On another note, I've received many requests for a workshop on my techniques and consequently I've begun to put together plans for a workshop late this spring so stay tuned. If you are interested send me an e-mail at email@example.com and let me know so I can put you on my email list for updates as the plans develop.
