The Color Explosion

With my knowledge of printing techniques for traditional images now vastly improved, I turned my attention on day two to my true passion – the abstracts. I printed out approximately 20,  without major tweaking, just to get a baseline for how they turned out and to have physical copies to compare. The instructor was clearly flummoxed when he saw what I had produced.

Keep in mind that this is a totally traditional, photos of Split Rock Lighthouse and waves crashing against the shore of Lake Superior, landscape photographer. I doubt he would even teach classes if he could make enough to support himself selling that stuff. I might as well have dropped to earth from another planet. The color just about made his head explode.


I was off and running on my totally subversive track. This image is one of a few where I performed a little bit of digital cloning to strengthen the composition.
