DescriptionWish You Were Here So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain. Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail? A smile from a veil? Do you think you can tell? And did they get you trade your heroes for ghosts? Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze? Cold comfort for change? And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage? How I wish, how I wish you were here. We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year, running over the same old ground. What have we found? The same old fears, wish you were here.Camera: Nikon D70sLens: 28-105mm f/3.8-5.6 DFilter: Hoya 62mm Infrared (R72)Tripod: MountedFocal Length: 28mmExposure: 30sec f/22 +2.0 EVSensitivity: ISO 200White Balance: Preset on the grass.AF Mode: ManualImage Type: InfraredLocation: Seattle WA
Shelly Alexander, Seattle Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement My name is Shelly Alexander, a Seattle based general photographer. My gateway into photography has been as a retouch artist, a style derived from art and cinematography, based on light & shadow, contrast, hues and tones, developed with the teachings of my parents. I like to think of it this way, I am married to retouching; my mistress is photography.
