  1. Elements combine
    Weaving new reality
    Spurred by a vision

A new addition to my Oil & Water series.

This artwork is dedicated to Linaji

Abstract macro photography created with oil, water and dye
Olympus E-3, 35mm, 1/13 Sec, f/5.6, ISO 100

This photographic art is a variation of ink-spread, or ink-drop, photography created with oil, water and dye. The special luminance in this piece was achieved by backlighting the design through a sheet of glass and diffusing available foreground light to eliminate glare.

My focus as a photographer and digital artist ranges from traditional photography to PhotoArt compilation and the less explored world of abstract design created with natural elements such as smoke, oil and water.
