H. David Stein
My photographs aim to show the world as a visually fascinating and beautiful place. Often the beauty of an object or scene is self evident, but at other times the inherent splendor is only revealed by peering closely into the component parts, or by viewing the object from a different vantage point or in a different light. I would like the observer to see what I saw and feel what I felt.
Most of my photographs are of landscapes from near and far and of nature from near and nearer. Flowers hold a particular fascination for me. Although most of my work concerns natural phenomena I am not averse to taking pictures of interesting man made objects.
The Day For Night Seriesrefers to a cinematographic technique used by movie makers to shoot a scene in day light and make it appear to be night time. All these photographs were actually taken in the bright sunshine.
