Description As I continue to be basically a slave to the interior of my home, with occassional jaunts to the deck and a few choice other places, my fascination with tulips has continued and expanded. I've decided to make a study of them, from stem to death, in all lights, single, bouquets, what have you. The cat has even made an apprearance with a tulip in a photo. But I started to think about it and I am making no claim to being a great artist, but I do remember that some of the best made studies of one subject, learning much from using just one subject to study light and compostiion and color, you name it. So for right now I'm going to make a study of tulips. I hope I learn a lot and I hope I produce some good work in my process of learning. Honest feedback is welcome.
Brenda Leitow Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement Photography is one of the most essential things to a happy life, in my world. Every time I get out my camera I go out and bathe myself in light and color and line and texture... and everything in the world around me. Photography is a very emotional art for me. When I take photos in the rain, or in the morning dew, or when the light gets soft near sunset, or sharp at sunrise, the light creates such an atmosphere that I can almost feel the colors melting right into my being, creating their lasting impressions. My job as an artist is to capture colors, not always as I see them, but also how I imagine them to be. I manipulate light and color to my desire. It's rather like a prism, bending the light, showing color. Only as a photographer I bend the light less precisely, leaving some breathing space for the light to find its own path. The light creates itself in that way, taking away my control, and does amazing things with color that never even occurred to me to imagine.
