Piece description from the artist
This infrared capture took up residence on my hard drive for nearly a year before I finally found a way to create the mood and look I wanted from the day I created it. Sometimes it just takes a little patience to let a piece feel right.
Travis Forbear is a portrait photographer by trade, but works as a fine art photographer when ever the chance arrives. Using photographs taken in and around the areas he grew up, Travis blends imagination, childlike curiosity, and the occasional use of textures to create his art.
In 2010 one of Travis' photos, a close up of a snowflake, was featured in "Popular Photography":http://www.popphoto.com/gallery/friday-sep-10. Travis continues to live and work where only the best snowflakes can be found, in Hart, Michigan.
