Living in southwest Virginia, inspires landscape photography. Although I have tried every sort of photography, my favorite remains the landscape. I like light, mist, buildings, especially with old and abandoned ones. I like junk, finding beauty in what most people would consider eyesores.
I spend hours working digitally on panorama photos, usually working toward realism although sometimes creating montages constructed of bits and pieces of images. Some photos are hand painted. The digital prints on canvas require a lot of waterproofing before they can be painted. They can also be painted with Photoshop, but that creates a very different effect.
As I chase landscapes, fog, mist, sunshine, shadow and all subjects, photography for me is a delightful art form.
