I will sit, wait, and look for a genuine moment to happen in certain kinds of light to show the world through where photography and fine art transect. I often refer to the poetry of the ordinary. I explore my surroundings, in search of everyday landscapes, in order to extract colors, shapes, textures, and patterns and acquire intriguing, independent artistic entities or images. I typically use a low ISO and manipulate my grays through the Histogram. When there is a high contrast, I always expose on the brightest part of the image. By exposing as long as possible without blowing out highlights, I maintain the maximum amount of detail in the dark areas of the image. Dodging and burning can always be done in Lightroom development with my RAW images, but I tend to stay away from that most of the time.
