On The Rocks

Courtney On The Rocks, Sullivan's Island SC  -  2013
(Click on photo to enlarge.)

Even at the Atlantic Ocean, if there are rocks to climb or walk on, Courtney will find them.

I've been reading a book about the relationship between photographer Alfred Stieglitz and artist Georgia O'Keeffe, and that seems to have re-kindled my interest in pictorialist photography. I decided to experiment with this look in this photo of Courtney. It is frustrating because it's hard for me to get the look I really want. This is close, but I stopped with this version mainly because of time restraints. Too bad I have to work for a living.

  1. Yes, making a living can get in the way many times. You seem to still keep the creative juices flowing though.

    The technique has a very ghostly, otherworld feel to it.
    It feels like there is a story attached to it.
