Georgian Bay – Photo Art Series 2013

Empress ChannelSeems like it was only yesterday when I was working on my Georgian Bay photo art series for the 2012 annual Ojibway Art Show.

I once again visited ‘Empress Channel’ what is hands down my favourite place in Pointe-au-Baril this spring. A combination of the white washed rocks, rugged coastline, lonely pine trees, and the treacherous shoal laden clear blue waters give this area the most unique feel of northern portion of The Parry Sound Archipelago.

My hopes, through my photography and photo art, is to show the natural beauty of the area. Building on my previous years theme I take an original photo that I took the previous cottage season and manipulate it into a digital painting. Through painting I am able to add movement and depth into my photographs thus moving my two dimensional photo into a more vivid and dynamic one.

For this particular image, much like a painter with oils or acrylic, I took away a few bushes and pine trees to better isolate the tree. I took this photo in early spring when the leaves had just started coming out. The bright greens against the blue sky, cool blue waters and white rock remain a vivid memory. I feel I have captured ‘Empress Channel’ the way I remember it with the above image.

All my prints are for sale. They are Museum Quality, and Giclée printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art Papers. Prints are signed and sold in limited quantities. As always, please feel free to email me with comments or questions. Thank you for looking and taking the time to go through my website.
