Rose Bud and Rose Bloom: Featured Art Prints

With June upon us, I wanted to feature two art prints that say June to me: Rose Bud and Rose Bloom. The colors start to pop on rose bushes this time of year and I wanted to celebrate the vibrancy of the blooms. Rose blooms are more than just color, they are texture, shape and color. The intricacy of the petals as that go from buds to full bloom. I capture these two particular photographs in a public garden in Portland, Oregon. Portland is well known for roses and these two particular photographs support that reputation. Thoughts?

The Old Farm – Featured Art Print

 

The Old Farm – is an art print I wanted to feature today. Is it colorful or does it grab your attention? Probably not, but what I like about it, is the fact it tells a story. The story is an obvious one, an old farm that has fallen into disrepair. When I came upon this scene in Eastern Iowa during the winter months, I loved the potential of composing a shot that would portray the feel of the property. I framed the scene using the barn as part of the foreground, with the dilapidated house in the background. The gate serves as a visual focal point pulling your eye towards the house. The final element for this particular art print was using a watercolor technique, which softens and darkens the scene slightly creating more of the mood. Thoughts?

Desert Botanical Garden At Night – Phoenix

A couple of weekends ago, we had an opportunity to visit the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden at night. There was an art exhibit my wife wanted to see. I didn’t go with the intent of photography, but I always have my camera. Had I thought about it ahead of time, I probably would have come more prepared. That said, I have attached four shots from that night. Having never visited the garden at night, I didn’t realize just how beautiful it was with the night lighting. Had I intended to do night shooting, I would have brought my tripod and spent time adjusting the aperture and speed to get the type of shot I wanted. It was very crowded with people that evening and when I realized I wanted to take some shots, I grabbed a few on the run if you will…
