Featured Artist for December:
December’s exhibit at the Orcas Island Library features photographic prints by Dave Kosiur under the title "Abstracting Reality". One of his recent approaches to photographing is to combine intentional camera motion (often referred to as ICM) with multiple exposures. When this is done in-camera, the photographer accepts the end result when pressing the shutter without further editing. Other photos in the exhibit were created by layering two dissimilar images on the computer to emphasize some aspect of the photo. With both approaches, the aim was to maintain a sense of the original object while adding a sense of motion or changing the mood of the scene.
The exhibit will run from December 1st through the 31st.
