Art Description

Photography: Color, Full spectrum, Paper, Photo, Manipulated on Paper.

Add my name to the legions of orchid lovers. To me orchids are fascinating, enigmatic, either sexual and seductive or alien and threatening – or all of the above. I can't get over the impression that they are conscious beings, here on earth to teach us something wonderful and mysterious.

I'm mostly interested in shooting them as extreme closeups, perhaps to better hear and see what they have to say. To get the entire field of view in focus, I take as many as 60 identical exposures at slightly different focus points and combine all the pictures using special, focus-stacking software. The colors come from the flowers themselves; I also play around with them in Photoshop. Right now I'm offering the finished images as giclée prints on 17" x 22" watercolor paper. Inquire about larger sizes. In the future I may print them as large format prints on aluminum. Stay tuned!
