I am a photographer, painter and art educator. My recent photographic work has me converting color images to subtle sepia-toned compositions. Often when I do this I find that many photos that appear to be all about color are actually stronger visual statements after I remove the color. This alteration makes the lighting more dramatic and the textures more engaged in the narrative.
I really have no one favorite subject category; I enjoy captures wherever I am and whatever surrounds me, but I do have a preference for compositions that are structured with and defined by simple geometric and/or irregular shapes.
I love that photographic art enables me to create quiet little mysteries in a rectangle.
