Early One Morning on Patterson Lake
We rented a cabin on Patterson Lake one year for my daughters birthday. I was wandering around in the morning with my camera and saw this person sitting at the end of the dock. The color of their shirt contrasted so nicely with the green water that I wanted to capture the moment. I enjoy the bright early morning sunshine coming down and the wonderful reflections on the water.
This photograph was taken in Winthrop Wa (Washington State), in the beautiful Methow Valley. The Methow is a small jewel of an area not too far from Seattle in the Pacific Northwest. Okanogan County is such a great place to live for all of the sunshine and outdoors recreation.
I started with a digital photograph and used a HDR process to tone map the light. Then I applied a finishing oil paint layer to add texture to the overall image. I did some tonal work to even out the colors and make them realistic to what I was seeing in nature but not excessively.
I am interested in photography as an "unusual" or "unique" image making process. In other words I enjoy starting with a photograph of an ordinary scene or subject and then I try to make it my own by adding unusual processing techniques. I hope you enjoy viewing my work as much as i enjoy creating it.
