It is Friday and that means Fine Art Photography Friday, the one day of the week that I post one of my fine art photographs and tell you the story behind it. Many readers have given me positive feedback and they like seeing my fine art work each Friday.
Being a San Antonio Fine Art Wedding Photographer I get to photograph many weddings each year, but I also work on fine art photography projects, like my amusement parts project. I have been working on the amusement parks project now for over ten years and I have been to amusement parks all over the world. You can see more images from this decade long project at http://redphotophotography.com/fine-art-friday-amusement-park-san-antonio-wedding-photographer-red-photo/, and http://redphotophotography.com/fine-art-photography-friday-iowa-san-antonio-wedding-photographer-red-photo/
The image above is from Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, TX. I remember it was a very hot day, like it always is in the Dallas area during the summer. The project was to link images back to older times by giving them a vintage look and feel. I photographed the beginning of the project with toy cameras, like a Diana and a Holga. These are cheap plastic cameras that take medium format film. I eventually switched over to using a digital SLR camera and then post processing the images to make them look like the images that came from the toy cameras. The project is all in black and white and the images are warm toned. I began this project so long ago that the original images were actually black and white prints that I made in an old style chemical darkroom. Film and the darkroom are long gone, but I still miss the process and the creative time. I don’t miss the hours upon hours of time that I had to spend processing film.
Make sure to look back at the blog next Friday for another fine art piece.
