I was encouraged, vociferously, to enter one of my photographs in an exhibit of artwork inspired by climate change. Done laughing yet? I was accepted. There are 22 students in the show. We’re competing for cash money, yo. In fact, I was just awarded a humble, (for serious humble), stipend from Environmental Studies. I hope that doesn’t mean I’m out of the running for the slightly less humble prize.
At any rate, this is the photograph that was selected. Luminary. Reverse lens macro, digital photograph. Reverse lens literally means that I took the lens off the camera, turned it around and held it in place, and shot the photo through the lens backwards. This process has produced some of my favorite photos. It’s also a practice in patience and keeping a steady hand.
It will hang for one week. Then I don’t know what I’ll do with it. If anyone is interested in purchasing, contact me for details. It’s really very beautiful in person.
