One year ago I attended the annual ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) summer picnic. Krause Springs is a very beautiful setting and a fun place to get together with fellow photographers from Austin and San Antonio. I'll be out there again tomorrow for the third time and that made me think about these images. The first one above is definitely my favorite. Because it is multiple images blended together I was considering how it actually shows a span time as opposed to a single moment. The guy on the right looks like part of the roots of that grand cypress. The girl under the falling spring water, where the conditions are perfect for a rainbow, stares off towards the action. A kid swinging bravely out over the fresh water and spectators, about to let go. That's why I love making these kinds of panoramas. I get to create and curate a scene without really interfering with it or getting involved. The individual moments are captured and merged into a master scene that is better able to illustrate my vision.
