I produce quality photography and immersive photo-based video for entertainment, decorative prints, events, and presentations for corporate and personal needs. I strive to provide viewers with sensational experiences that are derived from the special way that I perceive the world, as someone with low-vision.
As someone with poor vision (visual impairment to the degree of legal blindness), I certainly use video and photos in order to see images in detail (magnified on a computer, color enhancement, etc.). In doing so, I often notice and appreciate things that even better eyes might miss. Where distance, light, depth and even context are all impairing factors for me in the real world; photography changes everything. One can say that I use photography as adaptive technology, in order to make the world around me more accessible.
I like to start up close, in order to identify the tiniest elements in a photograph. As I move back, I take in the whole image, while retaining in my mind those features I've already examined. By studying images this way, I effectively build a 3D model in my mind. I'm sure that this is how many of us cope with limited vision.
By using video editing tools to record my process and adding meaningful music with audio effects, I am able to somewhat share my personal experience. You might find that this provides you with a new exciting / emotional experience, as you explore the world through photography ... our way. At times, you might find that my style of presenting scenes, audio, and music applies a certain flow, timing, and effect; specifically designed to compel the mind to listen as well as watch. Just one example to note is how I sometimes use long and heavy blurring for transitions, creating an unfocused stew of colors to disorient the eyes. The mind wanders, but not to worry. There's plenty of ear-candy (or audible ambiance) to keep it busy. At such a point, you might ask me ... "How does this share your personal experience?"
I personally am unable to function as either sight OR hearing dominant. My limitation forces me to apply an equal share of both. While it might seem like a disadvantage, it actually allows me to perceive things differently (under certain circumstances, perhaps better). Being somewhere in the middle, it isn't always accurate to say that I either saw or heard something. Maybe to say that I "gathered" (or dare I say, "felt") something before OR around me; I might be getting close to describing the sensation that I'm attempting to pass along to you through my SensationGallery.com entries. From feedback, I've gathered that content can be engrossing, even moving, at times.
You might be surprised to learn that most of the photography used in our videos is done, with me squinting through the camera lens. I must be honest, though, and say that my successes are often out of determination and some luck; to the degree that I am often surprised by outcomes. I'm always looking to bring things together, though, that are generally far apart OR unrelated. I look for elements in my photos that I often don't see during the shot, such as a bee flying into the scene. I very much like to enhance color, so that I can personally see and share the contrast in what I miss directly. I also cannot say enough how MUCH I appreciate the depth of what I can accomplish with high megapixel images, for my special uses and style of zooming / panning. Finally, when it comes to subjects or themes for my projects, I seek opportunities to aim with a positive lens, in order to give angles or perspectives that I feel are generally overlooked. Most of the time, after watching one of our videos, you might find yourself feeling good (at times, even enlightened).
Realize that this is not just another photo gallery site. I believe there's a good chance that you'll see it our way.
Lastly, If you like SensationGallery.com's style and would like to engage us to collaborate on a project OR to help out with producing content for special events like weddings, etc; then feel free to contact me.
