Philosophy Keith enjoys exploring all types of photography but leans towards environmental and transformative photography in serendipitous light. He plays with the subtle nuances of natural and available light, form, line, colour and texture. Using a combination of deep intuition and appreciative inquiry, he captures what he sees and feels.
Style Images are created in-camera through mindful composition and adjustments in focal length, shutter speed, aperture and depth-of-field. In that unique and decisive moment, he chooses to open the shutter and allows photons and electrons to do their digital dance inside his little black box. To make an authentic expression of his artistic vision, the raw image is crafted in the digital darkroom using refinements in colour, tone and contrast.
Technique Digital single lens reflex camera with prints made from professional quality Epson 7900 and 2880 printers, pigment inks and archival papers. Advanced digital artistic techniques are used to convey a visual expression of non-visual elements of the subject matter. A framed and matted, limited edition, fine art print is presented and shared with the viewer in a celebration of the joy of being in the ever constant present.
