Lomography is a photography style that is basically without rules and without thinking. Most lomographers use basic film cameras and just start photographing. I tried to imitate this style by walking through my neighborhood taking images randomly. Out of the many images I picked three and gave them kind of a film camera look using Nik filters. Then I created this collage.
St. Lawrence Market is one of the major attractions in Toronto, CA. For me it was also a huge photo opportunity. I created this collage of fifty image that reflect my impression of this very interesting place.
Fern Spring is a small but pretty spring in Yosemite National Park. Many people get their water supply from here and it is a favorite spot of many photographers. I thought I organize four of my images into a collage to create a wider sense of beauty and a more comprehensive understanding and appreciation of this magnificent place.
I created this collage to somehow express my thankfulness that our cat Slinky is back home after his surgery. He is all stitched up and he should fully recover.
I photographed all these images in my neighborhood. In post-production I stylized the image to bring out the colors more. I tried just the opposite that I try to do with black and white photography. I convert to monochrome to reveal the structure, lines etc better. In this collage every part of the image had the purpose to do mother nature justice by bringing out all the colors that I could find.
In addition, the smaller images are shot from the bottom up. The larger image has just the opposite direction. I thought this contrast reflects the multitude of viewpoint that one can look at subjects.
Last year I photographed lots of rocks in Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and California. This Winter I am photographing dead leaves in my backyard. When I began looking at the structure of rocks and leaves I discovered many similarities. Therefor I decided to create a collage of 12 single images in black and white.
I’ve started another mini-series, involving ‘triplets’
I read somewhere a good while back that humans like things in threes, such as ‘red, white and blue’, ‘Larry, Moe, and Curley”. I spotted these three birds, two gulls and a cormorant at Point Lobos and got the idea for doing triplets.
On my exercise walk I have to look down alot because the sun is usually in my eyes during the last half.
This corner of the sidewalk caught my eye. So on a non-walk day I went back at sunset and took this shot (among others). I found it interesting that whomever did the final lines etc. didn’t take the time to remove the leaves.
I walked around my neighborhood and photographed trees. Mostly I tried to frame the area where the trunk gets divided into several branches. I also did not want to see any houses or fences so I used a tripod and pointed the camera up. In some images I also used a reflector to lighten up shadows.
