Yoga Tree Exhibit – vol. 3

Non-binary tree search

In the third  installment of images that I am considering for the upcoming Yoga Tree exhibit, here is your next opportunity to give some feedback on which ones you favor…

One that I’m likely to include, as a point of contrast, is the monochrome image of the Yoga Tree, as it shows real character.  If you’d like another look at the first or second installment of images, the can be found in Yoga Tree Exhibit – vol. 1 and Yoga Tree Exhibit – vol.2.

As always, I am very much looking forward to hearing your thoguths on these images.

Thank you for your help!

A Fresh Perspective Photography is more than just a vehicle for capturing the world around me; it provides me with a palette and a set of brushes, with which I paint not only what I see, but also look to express the emotions that are evoked by the scene in front of me in that moment. Growing up in the Netherlands exposed me to a wide cross-section of visual arts that laid the foundation of my photographic view of all that surrounds me. Early influences were the Dutch Masters of the 17th century, to whom I was introduced by my grandfather during museum explorations; favorites among them are the scenes of quotidian life depicted by Jan Steen and Frans Hals and the vivid landscapes of Jacob van Ruisdael. My classical high school education was supplemented by the Boijmans Van Beuningen museum, where I spent many a lunch hour exploring its great collection. Here I was introduced to surrealism with a particular love for the approach taken by Salvador Dali; Dali also rekindled my appreciation for the work of Hieronymus Bosch, who often showed the folly of us mortals. Universal Connections My approach to any photographic subject is to look for understanding first; in this I look to establish either a connection between the viewer and the subject or capture the connection of the subject with its surroundings. The captured image then aims to portray this connection from a perspective that is part of my personal interpretation. This interpretation is often a form of externalized introspection, which may alternately display the connection of isolated beings and items with their environment or highlight the whimsy of the profound world, in which we find ourselves. The universe is full of connections, many of which are waiting to be discovered; part of my journey as a photographer is to document these connections. Any assignment, be it an event, a product shoot or a portrait session is always approached through communication with the client; this is where the first connection is established. Ideas are exchanged and a collaborative plan of action forms, ultimately resulting in a set of images that aim to exceed the expectations of each client. And, lest we forget, it is important to have fun while practicing the serious business of photography!

  1. OK I agree on the monochrome one. And I’m torn between the very top left (colors are gorgeous) and the very bottom one with no leaves for a second choice. If I had to pick, I guess I’d go with the no leaves one. ☺ It’s a stunning photo. Blessings, Frank!

  2. This week is almost too hard! I’m partial to the bare tree because it seems to exude movement. But I’m equally entranced by monochrome. The clouds and peeking sun add so much to Fields of Growth and I’m all about sunrises and sunsets! I’ll have to bow out of choosing this week and just say “wow, awesome work!”

    1. You’re very kind! I would never suggest to only select a single image, as I will likely pick several from this grouping.

      There will be one more set and then I’ll put my exhibit selection together.
