I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    Excellent DOF.

  • Thank you Jan ! Those leaves were about 10 feet off the ground so that helped with the bokeh.
