Outside of the water droplets on the edge of this lily, it was the contrast of the orange against green that first caught my eye. Is this image exactly what I was looking for when I clicked the shutter? Not really. But in reality, the end photograph rarely is. Read a bit more about the image here: http://bit.ly/2akMy8Z

Go slow please. On a multi-use walking / bike path like this one, it is pretty obvious why this was stenciled on the asphalt. But after I shot this, I started to think about other ways I should take heed of the sign. See the full image and read about those ways here: http://bit.ly/2a73LR3

What ways would you go slow?

Ah, the sign of a well organized basement or garage workshop. Rows upon rows of old mayonnaise and jam jars filled with nuts and bolts and screws and nails. See the full image here: http://bit.ly/29WsS6g

There's a heat wave coming for much of the country in the next few days. What should you do? How about stay inside and do some shopping?

Today through Aug. 3rd, all of my photography is 20% off through my website (http://portfolio.scottnorrisphotography.com/), Just use the code "HeatWave" at checkout to get 20 percent off any and all paper, canvas, and metal prints!

So you get a steal of a deal, you stay cool, and you help an artist make a living. A trifecta!

Anyone want to go for a spin? Normally, I would answer this question with a yes! However, at a neighborhood carnival, I would have to pass. I love watching the rides twist and turn but my inner ear, stomach, and I have an understanding – everything will be fine as long as I do not get on any ride like this.

Always vigilant, a tiny solitary Seuss-like tree stands alone in a vast never-ending grey. Although isolated, it is not joyless.

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
