Photograph - Digital Photographs
Bird is the word. A bright red bird observes a blue-eyed glowing light.Where is this light coming from. Does anyone see the eye behind the eye. And to what degree does the other form play a role in this scene. When I look at this photograph, I am imagining a bird to be watching quietly as two friends have a conversation.
This photograph is a mystery to me. How is it that there can be so many stories and ideas that can play out in a light and airy space. I really enjoy the colors that are illuminated so softly and the shapes that emerge from the whole. This is a photograph taken during my Macro work with Glass art. This is one of many and I am always surprised at how many things I see in these photographs. I can come back to one that I took a while ago and see new color stories. Colors are telling me stories. My imagination runs wild every now and again…..
This picture started out as a picture of handblown glass created by Garth Mudge of Glassworks in Winthrop Wa. Glassworks is located downtown in the beautiful Methow Valley in Okanogan County.
It was taken with a Macro lens and is a very small section of the overall object. I am exploring hand blown glass at a macro level in the hopes of creating fine art from very small pieces of glass.
All of the colors and shapes are created from hot glass. None of these images are created from anything other than hand blown glass objects. I am removing visible specks of dust in Photoshop to present a cleaner look but the overall image is exactly what I am seeing through my camera lens.
The colors are vivid and alive due to the way that I am illuminating the glass art as I am taking the picture. In a way I am photographing the light as it passes through the object. Creating art from light or art from glass art? Either way I see creating art from life and from existing art.
I have been a professional photographer for many years but it is only recently that I have been photographing glass at any level. It is such an exciting experience to discover these images. I almost feel like an archeologist as I explore a small hidden word and reveal the treasures within.
