My Soul Nature project:
My camera and I have a wonderful relationship; I have been taking pictures for many, many years. People often ask me what kind of photos I like taking. Landscapes? Portraits? Documentary photography?
I have tried taking photos of just about everything and the things that I keep coming back to, the ones that I love to take the most, are of two of the most beautiful things on this planet — children and nature.
You can’t go wrong with these two very free subjects. They both are innocent and natural and this is easily captured when they are in their own habitat.
I am lucky enough to have limitless access to little models; melding photos of nature with children gives portraits an ethereal edge. I have now tried my hand at doing the same thing within the digital realm and have come across something that works really well for me.
Most of the enjoyment is choosing which photo will go with which photo — mixing and matching. In this digital age it all magically happens right before my very eyes. In the old days, 90% of the process was left up to chance as I hoped for the best and discovered some happy mistakes. A part of me revels in that form of ‘magic’. A greater part of me appreciates the wonder of the new tools of technology that allow the essence of my art to be ever more fully expressed.
I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do.
