Many contemporary landscape photographers try to balance the natural beauty of the land with the imprint of humans in a movement loosely known as “contemporary landscape”.
Selective lighting and darkening the background are among my favorite tricks to make a flower picture stand out
I have been to the Marin Headlands a number of times, but last Saturday was the first time I saw the face of the Mermaid.
Some flowers have very strange and fascinating shapes, and that certainly includes Angel’s trumpets.
I like the freedom from reality that black and white gives me. In color, there is often the expectation that a scene has some resemblance with reality, and when it does not, it looks strange. In black and white, by contrast, there is no such expectation because there is no real world in black and white to use as a reference.
Our circulatory system, our lungs, the tops and roots of trees, the rivers flowing to the ocean, and the evolution of life itself can be recovered as a branching pattern.
The coast off Fort Ross is beautiful and full with potential for high contrast black and white photography.
