A New England Kettle Pond

Writing with Light, using my cones and rods, I get to interpret light and use that interpretation to observe beauty from my subjective perspective.
On a walk around my Walden Pond, I could see November in the objects and their shadows. I could see light as it dropped like water on a leaf or a needle of a pine tree.
Light moves around when a leaf swirls in the wind and a new shadow is cast on a new branch.
It is a privilege to be able to have the time and the equipment needed to be able to have a day of gratitude. There are times in people lives when to bridge a divide means a lot of subjective work at uncovering clarity. This is an ongoing process in both art and therapy.

Mindfulness in Psychoanalysis is one aspect of my life, and iphotoimpression.com is another aspect of my professional life. These two ambitions drive me still today. What they have in common is the intensity of emotion as a reflection of intense color. The colors that make up the above composition are cream, aqua, deep red fuchsia and a hint of purple and green. Among these colors are variations in contrast and tonality.

I took my camera out to photograph light, only by coincidence and intuition did the objects end up in the images created. I love trees, they feel essential to me. I live among them. When I look out my window, I see nature and neighbors here and there in these woods on the edge of a New England Kettle Pond.

The Season of Darkness

The season of darkness juxtaposed with a bathing of white and light.  After spending the last three years attempting to re-invent myself, I seem to be returning to photography as one of my enjoyable hobbies.  Recently I discovered a different way of editing my images.  The image above represents one manner of developing a digital image out of thousands and thousands of various possibilities.

The process of working in the digital dark room is a process or perpetual choosing.  You can tickle an adjustment or you can tweet an adjustment or you can boldly change the image into something that was not present in the original intention.

The Season of Darkness illustrates for me that a cooling bluish-white image can evolve in a glimpse of warmth.  The brushes that I used on the image were from the series called “liquid-line”.  The process of getting to this image included importing the original image in several software editing programs.

The next several post will reflect the editing process that turns a photograph into a multi-media work of fine art.
