Promoting Photographers & Digital Artists
“Consistently high quality images and discourse bring us back time-and-time again, providing inspiration and a heightened sense of visual aesthetics.”– Marcus Reinkensmeyer
My art is known for its dramatic scenes and fascinating characters. The images evoke thought and emotion from the viewer. Each image invites a visual exploration and a return to its mysteries
over and over again.
Sometimes, but thankfully not often, the challenge is staying inspired to continually create new artworks. Unlike drawing or painting by hand, a digital artist must rely on finding one photo or sometimes many photo components to fulfill the image in their mind’s eye. When these components are elusive, the creative pool can become dry. When one idea is not coming to fruition, then I know that I must mentally and emotionally shift gears and devise a new concept for my next piece.
Still Life photography opened my eyes to the beauty of mundane objects by allowing me to control composition, lighting and hence mood. I become a child that is playing; finding new ways to lead the eye to where I want it to go. My images are always an exploration of how to show these simple every day objects in new ways. “The Gathering ” takes your boring Enoki mushrooms and creates a dramatic family ensemble. “Uplifted” flips our perspective by lifting up a skeleton leaf, showing its underside in a reflection.
Strong composition would probably be another aspect my viewers notice. I work hard to choose great compositions with leading lines that draw the viewer’s through the frame and emphasize certain areas of each photograph. I think composition is the real foundation of any eye-catching photograph, so it’s something I spend a lot of time ensuring I it get right.
