I haven’t done any serious black & white since just after high school (Don’t ask!). I decided to explore simplicity as my retreat project a few weeks ago. In exploring the minimalist approach I think I learned a great deal.
I’m always looking at the sky above the treetops. But I’m not sure it ever occurred to me to make a photo project out of that habit. I began at Raquette Lake, which has visible shoreline all over the place.
This not being the best of weeks, I decided to focus only on the positive and let the rest take care of itself. My reward was lots of time in the field, where I finally got the procedure down for a new technique (totally in-camera) that I am all jazzed-up about. It is time-consuming and difficult to execute, but I think the results are fantastic!
I am a photo artist and writer whose heart lives in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, regardless of where I happen to be eating my breakfast each morning.
I am owner/director of the Adirondack Photography Institute, an organization dedicated to improving the quality of our lives and preserving our natural spaces through the study and practice of outdoor photography as a creative medium.
Oh yeah, if I'm lucky enough on a given day to have a choice of breakfast venue, that would be the Tamarack Café in Inlet, NY.
