Ultraviolet Reverie


I spent the better part of my shooting time in the Fall of 2017 with a florescent light filter on my Minolta 70-210mm f/4 lens. I used a digital camera and an adapter to connect to the old lens. I shot with this set up almost exclusively for three months unless I was doing portraiture. It became an interesting challenge to see what I could capture using that focal length range and under the influence of the intense color. Seeing dogberries redden and the leaves turn yellow and orange through a purple lens gave me a wonderful sense of heightened reality. This is how I watched the season change and I found it refreshing to see the colors of the fall in a new way.

I am a dreamer and I want to show the viewer things that were never really there, but in a setting that makes them almost believable.
