Exhibit Selections – ep. 2

Birth of a star

The input that I received from many readers has been instrumental in helping me decide on the Yoga Tree images that will be included in the exhibit at my place of employment.

As there is room for 10-12 images, I have selected 12 to ensure that no space is unused.  In addition to a set of Yoga Tree images, there will be one additional print that has been requested by the Art Committee, which I will reveal at the end of this series of posts.

Here’s the second of the Yoga Tree images that are included…

Sun’s Birth

One of the great advantages of Winter is that we don’t have to get up as early to be up at the crack of dawn.  On this morning in December, I got the opportunity to see the Sun’s appearance and position it in this location, relative to the Yoga Tree, giving the suggestion that the Sun makes its daily appearance from the life-giving tree.

With a hint of snow in this image and a clear Winter’s sky, we see a very bare-bones view of the Yoga Tree, showing her glorious pose at the start of her Sun Salutation.

Hope you enjoy your day!

Technical Details

This image was captured with an iPhone 4S using the standard Camera app.  For printing, I did a bit of sharpening and some tonal adjustment in Photoshop.  This image will be printed on a high-quality pearlescent paper to provide a little bit of extra pop to the image.

Daily Prompt – Burn seems to fit this one rather nicely!

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!
