The Trees Amongst Us
Digital photography with a Vintage Twist!
I print my photographs onto transparent film and this allows the metal leaf to shine through the image. The gold, silver and copper metallic backgrounds shimmer and change according to the light conditions and look a lot like early photographic processes such as daguerreotypes and tintypes. Are you familiar with other trends in historic photography? I add another splash of vintage by rendering the trees in colour and the surrounding streetscapes in black and white, a technique that results in a digital version of the hand coloured photograph.
Inspired by LEAF’s (Local Enhancement & Appreciation of Forests) Adopt-a-Street-Tree project in the Junction neighbourhood of Toronto, “The Trees Amongst Us” is an ongoing series depicting street trees throughout the seasons.
