Writing with light

My artistic vision centers on the portrait, in a very wide sense of the word. For me a portrait captures the essence of a person, event, animal, thing or place. Sometimes that means "truth", a crisp and clear picture that shows exactly and precisely what is there. At other times that means "beauty", a composition that brings out or displays the best of what is there. And once in a while it means "art", where the image evokes awe and wonder in the viewer.

My fine art portfolios is where I share my art photos, the ones suitable for printing and using to decorate a wall.
I also have a small collection of images of art created by local artists at other artist's work.
If you are a photographer, you may find my shoot notes have something interesting or helpful.

These are captures of people dancing with lights. Sometimes I catch the person, sometimes just the dancing lights.

Large pictures and panoramics

Below are some of the panoramas I've made. I am using gigapan to host these because that site has very good viewing tools. They now also offer large prints. The images below are embedded versions of the gigapan interface.
