Camera Tossing | Seattle, Washington – 2015

Plastic Ghost | Seattle, Washington - 2015

Plastic Ghost | Seattle, Washington – 2015

Camera tossing is one of my favorite shooting techniques.

For these one of a kind images, the shot is achieved by tossing your camera in low light. While spinning in the air, the camera picks up trails of light.

I find the results are always kinetic, abstract, and a bit haunting.

Nikon Digital | Seattle, Washington – 2015

Portal | Capitol Hill, Seattle – 2015

I recently purchased a Nikon Digital s3600. It’s very different than shooting with the iPhone, or my dSLR.

The camera fits in my pocket, is lightweight, and was relatively cheap.

It’s fun to shoot with in low light, and quiet situations where a 35mm, would be too intrusive.

I am finding that it is also very useful for pickup shots, in-between takes with the 35mm, during night and action shoots.

Here are some of the results.

Westlake Center

Westlake Center | Seattle, Washington – 2014

Nighttime in the city, during the winter is such an amazing time of year.

In the sharp cold and absence of light, the pulsing glow of festival lights  work their magic.

They always find a way leave me spellbound.

Odditorium: Jabberwocky – 2014

2014 was my second year playing with mixed media in a digital format.

I became really obsessed  with the ideas of  shape, flow, and symmetry.

I wanted to create sketches that took  juxtaposing images, and made then look like natural resting objects.

Something wild, spartan, and balanced, like nature in a harsh climate.

Sonambulist

Sonambulist – 2013

Technology is so amazing.

With my phone, and tablet  I have a camera, jukebox, phone, gps navigation, all in my pocket.

It makes it really easy to  wander the city taking photos when you’re a walking photo studio.

It also doubles as an entire art studio.

Mixed media work in a digital format is much different experience that using a traditional sketch book.

Working with a stylus and tablet can be maddening, but the results are always interesting.

Downtown Reykjavík | Reykjavík, Iceland – 2013

Seeing the Northern Lights is something I’ve wanted to cross off of my bucket list for some time.

In 2013 I went to Iceland in hopes of making that happen.

The aurora borealis eluded me, but I was able to capture a few nice shots.

There’s always next time.

These pieces are my first foray into digital design.

The ability to use the internet to make any image I can imagine is an artists dream come true.

With enough time and patience, anything I can picture in my  minds eye, I can create digitally.

It is an amazing, and powerful medium.
