The Science of Color Underwater

Working with both underwater and above water elements, there is a considerable color difference. Generally speaking, color is perceived by the light that is reflected off of and/or absorbed by an object.  Color is interpreted by receptors in our eyes, and varies depending on the light’s wavelength (measured in nanometers, or “nm”).  Light with a […]

New Work, September 2013

Nordic Light Festival Review

Back in December I wrote about being included in the Nordic Light International Festival of Photography in Kristiansund, Norway.  The festival was April 22 – 27th, and was SUCH A BLAST!  I’ll say this for Norwegians- they sure do know how to party! Leaving Baltimore to go to Norway in April was an interesting challenge.  Just […]
