The current Featured Artist on Good Day Lubbock is photographer David Sanderson, who specializes in what is known as "Light Painting."
From the Artist:
"The photo on set is 20" x 30" on canvas of Mt. Hayden from Point Imperial, the highest elevation on the North Rim of Grand Canyon at 8803 ft.
On this 48-degree day in early July, we were run off the rim several times by storms from the Summer Monsoon. The rain and mist adds layers and depth of field to this photo giving it an almost watercolor look, and making it one of my more popular pieces.
Very little post processing is done to this photo except to take the grey out with Photoshop so that it prints like my eye saw it instead of how the camera records it.
In landscape photography, a great subject, the right place, and the right time can make for a great photo.
“It’s God’s Creation, I Just Help Show It Off!”
