Landscape or Abstract
Traveling in Acadia National Park provides for many different views of sunrise and sunset. Composition and formatting of the image can create realistic landscape or abstract images. Using the rule of thirds as a guide, you can compose any image to suit your needs. When creating Fine Art photographs, the sky is limit on your choices for composition, cropping, and texture. In Stephen Covey’s book series called the 7 habits of Highly Effective People, his first thought is to begin with the end in mind. As a photographer, I constantly think about what my end result is going to be and then capture the image to fill that vision. Whether it is going to print or on the web makes a difference in composition, cropping, or texture.
The Final Product
Giving some thought to what I stated in the previous section, I started doing my own printing in my home office quite some time ago. It gives me full creative control over my final products. I manage my process from the moment I trip the shutter, all the way to the end user. Since I use different types of photographic paper, my images look differently on a shiny metallic surface then they do on a textured matte surface. You might think that this is a lot of thinking to do when all you want to do is trip the shutter. However, as a professional, I like to keep things into perspective as to what it is I want to do with the finished product. Any and all of my images are available to purchase right here from my web site. If you are interested in acquiring an image, contact me and we can discuss what would be the appropriate paper to use and where you might display these images in your home or office. Enjoy!
