Photograph on Canvas




This is a photograph in my Kinetic series, and it is a photograph, not a painting! As I've continued my experimentations with abstract photography I've striven to make my artworks more painterly in appearance, working toward blurring the line between photography and painting. I utilize Kinetic Photography by moving my camera around as I hold it in my hands and I also literally throw my camera up into the air—sometimes several feet high—and I also sometimes impart spinning and/or tumbling motions to the camera as I throw it upward. My images are not multiple exposures, layered, or Photoshopped! The result achieved in each of my Kinetic photographs is the product of one single long exposure shot that usually includes multiple light sources/objects. This photograph is printed on a premium grade archival canvas with quality archival inks in vivid colors so that with care it will last for generations to come. It's printed on a Gallery Wrap canvas so it's ready to hang and framing is completely optional.
