I'm fascinated by simple horizons with clear skies and calm water.  But never really seem to get a photograph that captures what I want.  I think I may have got something I like this time, albeit with a LOT of processing.

The great images - photos, paintings, whatever - are always there.  All we need to do is see them.

#inspiration #creativity
How do we get out of a creative rut? Look around and see with fresh eyes. See the extra in the ordinary.

Story
Tagline
Photographer/Freelance animator/motion graphics designer
Introduction

Emotion.  Mood.  Feelings.  This is what I capture through my photographs.  Whether it is landscapes, architectural elements, still life, or macros - it is a very personal journey as my own fears, triumphs, beliefs, and shortcomings are exposed with each photo.

Much of what I shoot is done spontaneously without preconceived thought or plan.  I let what is around me dictate what is photographed.

And the shooting is only the first step - a jumping off point.  I take the raw images and create what I see in my mind’s eye.  Coaxing out textures present in the shot – sometimes adding them.  Enhancing the contrast of light and dark to create the mood and emotions I felt and feel.  In the end, it’s all about listening to my heart and mind and creating a visual representation of what I feel the moment the shutter is released.

I'm a native Texan currently living on Milwaukee’s East Side with my lovely wife, Jen and son, Sam. 

I have photos (prints, canvas, framed) available for sale on my website scottnorrisphotography.com and at Fine Art America

Here is my current animation reel: http://www.scottnorrisphotography.com/animation
