Fine Art Still Life Images
My still life work is inspired by 17th century European master painters. Working in a dark studio, I compose and light each scene to maintain deep shadows within and around the subject matter. Colors and textures are naturally enhanced with the use of targeted lighting to bring out their full spectrum of rich hues and shadow/highlight detail. I personally developed this targeted lighting technique, and teach classes in my studio on use of this technique, as well as more basic photography principles using natural lighting.
