Poetry of Motion

Poetry of Motion

For the past two years I have been shooting a Dance Art Photography project; both to highlight my Dance Photography and to bring more awareness to the beauty, artistry and athletic ability of dancers. These images are of a very talented young dancer from The Academy of Russian Ballet in Manassas, Virginia. To view more of our “Poetry of Motion” Art images please visit our
Website: Poetry of Motion  or Blog: Poetry of Motion

We hope you enjoy these images as much as we enjoying sharing them with you and we hope you consider supporting this project to bring the beauty of dance to a wider audience by purchasing one of our limited edition prints at our website: www.bpaydenphotography.com/store

Postern Gate – Fort Monroe

Postern Gate - Fort Monroe

Today’s image is an HDR, High Dynamic Range, image of the Postern Gate at Fort Monroe. I shot this beautiful image today and chose to do an HDR image as there was wonderful diffuse lighting through the high altitude rain clouds. Blending the three images into one image using Photomatix Pro allowed me to bring out the ominous feeling of the cloud cover as well as intensifying the fall colors and warming the fortress’s walls. The lines of the walkway to the gate transition the viewers eye from the foreground through the wonderful blue green of the water to the strong receding horizontal lines of the forts walls which are warmed by the fall coloring and the soft lighting. The foreboding dark grey cloud cover focuses the viewers eye back to the Fort serving to further reinforce the strength of the subject. This image is printed on professional metallic photo paper and is available for sale here at my online art print store, Etsy.com.
