For me, the camera is just one tool that I use in approaching landscape photography. I enjoy taking images that go beyond what can be seen with the naked eye, so I use different techniques or tools to create photos that reveal the "unseen" world around us. Many of my images are long exposures, ranging from 1 second to 8 minutes or even longer; these photos record the accumulation of time in a single image. I also enjoy creating abstract images with intentional camera movement, using a longer shutter speed and physically moving the camera during the exposure. Finally, I have recently begun to experiment with infrared photography, which records infrared light wavelengths instead of the visible light spectrum. The resulting images are dreamy and otherworldly, unveiling a secret world that is always there but the eye cannot see.
