An aesthetic experiment with my iPhone led me to start shooting flora and landscape photography. With the iPhone there is no prep or process only the moment and the object . I started to come up with interesting images with just my iPhone and realized the images were different because I was not thinking about the images; just shooting flora with an idea in mind, as process and setup were not an option. So I wondered if I could trick myself into seeing differently with my big Nikon cameras.
The next day I went back to a local garden with my iPhone in one hand and a tripod and my Nikon in the other hand. Ignoring my big camera, I walked around as if I was only going to shoot with my iPhone, and when I was finished, I would pull out the Nikon and go through the setup of and process of shooting an image with all the care to detail I would normally do. The results were what you see on this page. I don’t considering myself a real fine art photographer since I only have time to shoot when I have free time.
I love organic patterns of energy I see in flora; just pure form, shape and color interrelated with each other. I love the beauty just waiting to be interpreted. I love the seeking and the seeing of fine art shapes.
