Just a small series I made for an assignment. I like to wander Sarasota a lot a night, and one of the things that interests me visually is the multitude of darkened storefronts you find. The little vignettes of consumer landscapes, once darkened and abandoned, seem to take on a life of their own and describe a different atmosphere than what is intended. These images were shot through the windows of stores in St. Armand’s Circle at about 2 in the morning. They were completed with a bit of HDR and some experimentation with black and white. I definitely plan on continuing this body of work in the near future.
This is a short series of fine-art images taken for the Sarasota County Department of Water Resources. I spent the summer interning for the department making images for promotional, documentary, inter-departmental, and research purposes. These particular images were taken of the Myakkahatchee blackwater creek in North Port, Florida. As with my other landscape work, I try to show the otherworldly beauty of nature and evoke an atmosphere of the spiritual.
