Simply stated When you use a slightly telephoto lens and put the images together it would be as if you handed your viewer a pair of binoculars and let them observe the composition from 50 to 100 yards ‘back’. Vanishing points are now more apparent, which draws the eye through the subject matter and proportion has been curiously (and scientifically) preserved throughout the horizontal sections of the composition. A tree on the left side of the composition is now the same size as a tree on the right side. You see a tree in the middle and it is in proportion and scale to its surrounding elements. At one glance there is attained a curious continuity.
Photographic panoramas and especially aerial panoramas are what I consider to be some of the more thought-invoking attention-retaining and compelling images that might be planned and executed for commercial or fine art applications. And the magic conjured is so much more involved than cropping a section of a wide-angle image to fit a format. Its literally adding together a series of 5 to 12 images. This is one way that the physics of light-traveling-in-a-straight-line might be harnessed and appreciated. View Panoramas Gallery
Basset Studios Nevada landscape photography …
Nearly all my Nevada landscape photographs and nearly every one of my Nevada scenic panoramic images have been the result of intentionally studying maps, gathering gear, collecting provisions, figuring out food, shelter, water, transportation and fuel and heading out into the vastness that is the Basin & Range of Nevada.

Within the category of scenic landscape photography it is fun to imagine and remember that all art borrows from its predecessors. This is a good and relevant history. Basics of composition, lighting, rules of thirds are happily and traditionally the tools available to photographers even to this day. When working on scenic landscapes there are a lot of other details involved- maps, travel, time, destinations, vehicles, provisions and gear and even more gear. Hear about it. Find it on the map, think about it, and get out there with some atmosphere and magic light – and don’t run out of film! View Scenics Gallery
Abstract and textures fine art photography is a technique and style and vision that gives voice to the wandering and unspoken – one thing today and another thing tomorrow. A timeless way to appreciate and enjoy modern digital image making in the traditional and the new way of seeing and experiencing the world around so close and at times so far removed.

Derivative photography includes affiliated images, attributed imagery and similars. In thoughtful proprietary hands images can multiply … can be very colorful … thematic … near complimentary … even monochromatic. Magically they evolve and become members of a family of images, part of a sequence or better yet part of an experience. Often times they are inspired by travel, hobbies, or fascinations. Similar, affiliated, congruent, thematic – to me its all part of my family of fine art photography images. View Derivatives Gallery
