I have always had a fascination of nature particularly geology, topography and cloud formations which is why I Iove landscape photography. Growing up with black and white film cameras and darkrooms, the transition to black and white digital photography made sense to me. Black and white photography appears to punctuate various shapes, forms and textures at play between light and shadow. It allows me to focus on contrasting features in my subject without distracting color and, potentially discovering detail that may be lost. As a photographer, I attempt to convey to the viewer that feeling or emotion I had at the time I depressed the shutter. Photographing nature is a way for me to get the viewer involved in the beauty of our natural environment. It is also a way for me to express my love of nature and why I believe it’s important to conserve our natural resources.
