Artist Statement: Long exposures inspire me, which is the white silkiness of the waterfalls of a popular national park. When my waterfall images are viewed, I want somebody to experience a smooth and calm romantic sensation. Long exposures also inspire me with light painting and combining the powerful use of color with blend modes in Adobe Photoshop. I love to light paint any type of small still life, which can include any type of antique, jewelry, or any type of Chinaware like classic mugs. Many landscapes really grab my attention like of some the popular national parks like Shenandoah, Great Falls, and Ricketts Glen. Reflections of products or antiques using the white or black plexiglass table are one of my greatest inspirations. I love to visit popular cities in America, United Kingdom, Europe, and Canada to photograph some beautiful architecture and landscapes with just natural light. I have met many interesting people of cultures with complex backgrounds of digital art.
I like to use a dark and gloomy style for many of my images. Sometimes I like to exaggerate the colors by slightly increasing the saturation and vibration. I also love to experiment with black and white photography techniques with Adobe Photoshop and any popular plugins. Sometimes I use a custom white and black technique, or I create my own black and white technique.
