Description The full moon rising as the branches traces silhouettes in the sky. Driven by strong winds, the clouds race from horizon to horizon. The unusual light conditions were created by smoke from forest fires buring about 60 miles to the southwest. Amazing how such destruction in one area can create so much beauty in another.
Tony Callahan, Denver, Colorado Member Since May 2007 Artist Statement I have always been intrigued by the interplay of light and shadow, color and contrast, the texture of a leaf or the forms contained on a hillside. This intense interest lead me to photography. I believe that while most people look at the world, a photographer sees the world around him. Or sometimes, the photographer sees the world not as it is but as it was meant to be.
For me, seeing the photograph is just the beginning of the creative process. A photograph should represent a moment in time, capturing it and containing it completely. I use traditional and alternative photographic techniques as well as digital treatment to create a complete image
Posted here are some of my favorite images. It is my sincere hope that you will enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed creating them. If you find a photograph that you especially enjoy, please let me know. One of the great possibilities of the web is it's ability to connect kindred spirits.
