Capturing Souls

When I saw photos of a friend's beautiful yard late this fall, I knew we had to hurry over before winter's brown coat took over. A young friend of a friend came to our rescue and provided a charming center of interest for our autumn backdrop.
Like in my paintings, I tried to play with the colors, angles and light to portray not only a pleasant design, but a sense of connection to the mood or emotion of the subject.
I'm finding that photography, like my other art, is inevitably a one man show. As with painting, I wear the hats of the designer, director, producer and promoter. Unlike painting however, it's always nice to have an assistant!
