Blowing In The Wind

I captured this nature portrait in Rensselaer, Indiana on August 12th, 2019. I was looking for Canada Geese when I saw this vegetation being blown around by the wind and thought it would be an interesting subject to photograph. I photographed this image in black and white because it was overcast and colors were very dull. I was drawn to the mix of different details in this scene; in particular, the small, finer texture of the cattails and the larger, smoother texture of the weeds. I also wanted to use bokeh (blur) to use the pond as a subtle backdrop. I used an orange black and white filter to improve contrast throughout the image.

Printed on Hahnemühle German Etching paper. Limited to 300 productions per size.

Framed prints are available in 20" x 16" and 30" x 24" sizes.
