For many years I've concentrated on capturing historic architecture, landmarks, popular local scenes and botanics. My wife and business partner Maryanne, has encouraged me to wide the perspective a little, to change my style of art. She has also continued to push me toward producing large canvas prints. As usual, she was right! Why I resisted the trend toward canvas for so long has no reasonable explanation, other than perhaps being comfortable with what I had been doing for years.
Canvas has changed the way photographers display their art forever. We've always made large photos, and until 2005 framed them under glass. Glass! Reflections! Heavy! Breakable! Fingerprint Collectors.....
Here is the recently completed panorama of the beach at the North End of the Oceanfront. Captured with a Canon 5D Mark II, the nine image composite is over 500 MB and prints out as a 33 foot wide by 8 foot high wall mural.
Thank you Mary, Lee and David for allowing me to access your beach! This will soon appear in a local hospital.
A rented Camaro for a week also got me out of bed earlier than usual creating those softly lit scenes every photographer loves! Stopping first at First Landing Seashore State Park, a place I've been a hundred times, I was able to see it in a way I never have before. I traveled to Pungo, picked some strawberries, went to Back Bay to capture beach dunes, and then stopped by Big Sky Farms to photograph horses.
