Dave Waite Nature Photography

This blog has been created to provide photographers, artists and those who enjoy the creative process with the opportunity to express ideas about photography. Along the way I hope to share some of my thoughts, as well as some of my techinques in creating nature and fine art photographs.

I am a amateur nature and fine arts photographer who was trained in black and white photography in the early 1970's, worked professionally a bit and then set aside all artistic pursuits until about 2003. I enjoy the creative aspects of photography and look forward to sharing with others of similar interests.

Garlic Scape Shadows

Hi All,

First, thank you to everyone who visited my booth at the Troy River Street Festival on June 16th. It was a fantastic event with lots of attractions and music that drew a huge crowd.
Getting a chance to talk to many of you about my artistic pursuits using photography helps me better define my creative motivations and goals. It is very easy to become so focused on the creative process that an artist becomes myopic to the overall theme and direction of their work. Hearing your comments and thoughts helps me immensely in this area.
Over the past couple of years I have been studying the minimalist art of Georgia O'Keefe, especially her amazing floral works, as well as some of the abstract works by artists such as Sanduski. I am getting to the point now of having some of my works in these styles available for display, and by the Stockade Art Show in Schenectady this September I will have these available. Below are some photographs of garlic scapes that I created recently in this vein.

Feel free to write and let me know what you think at photoguy@nycap.rr.com

Thanks for stopping in to check out my blog, have a great summer!
