Show Me The Stars

Environmental portrait photography. The goal is to use the environment to help tell the story of the subject of the picture.

In this particular image the story, which I made up, is about a young lady who lives in the city and comes to the mountains to see the stars for her first time.

This image is also a composite image. The stars are taken from an astro photography shot I had done the previous summer. It was a 30-second long exposure. Additionally, I lit some of the trees separately from the couple after they left, in order to have a more night time look.

This picture was part of my senior show for graduation from West Virginia State University in Institute, West Virginia.

The theme of my show was photography in the style of Norman Rockwell, one of the most prolific American artists of the 20th century. Everyone loves Norman Rockwell.

I read Norman Rockwell’s autobiography. If you have a chance to read it, I highly recommend it.

The only product I am currently offering are prints on PVC. You may not have heard of prints on PVC because they are new, but they are BEAUTIFUL! They have all the detail of a paper print without the glare of glass or additional cost of framing. They arrive ready to hang with a mount that puts the image 3/4” from the wall for a modern “floating” look. The finish is a metallic luster that I feel compliments my style.

Why not canvas? Personally, I do not like the texture that comes with a canvas print. I don't feel that they are as detailed as a PVC print and I have been unhappy with the overall printing of canvas prints that I've ordered in the past. To be fair, I have seen canvas prints that look good but I don't know where they were printed and until I find one I'm happy with, I don't want to offer them. Furthermore, canvas prints are much more expensive.

That said, if you'd still prefer a canvas or a paper print, please use the form to the right to message me and I can put together something custom for you.
