I like images that you have to look at for a while to figure out exactly what you’re seeing.
I love to explore unique lighting effects in my fine art photography, but light is nothing without shadows. Light simply illuminates the subject. Shadows are what create depth and add interest to the image.
This fine art photo of an egret wading through the swamp is from my recent visit to the Big Cypress National Preserve. It’s also an homage to photographer Clyde Butcher. Clyde is famous for his very large scale traditional darkroom black and white prints of scenes in the Big Cypress and Everglades areas.
