DAVID YOUNG’S PHOTO PHILOSOPHY: I like to take close-up photographs of ordinary objects in my immediate environment such as rock faces, driftwood, and tree bark – the photos featured in this Album.
For example, if one looks closely enough, an uprooted tree can be a natural gallery with a variety of interesting areas. Often these areas may be no more than several inches in diameter, but when framed by a camera, they can be quite beautiful. In this way, the “unnoticed” world around us blossoms to reveal the beauty of nature, enhanced by the artistic eye.
In addition to taking micro, close-up photographs, I like to take macro photographs such as landscapes, buildings, and people. My goal with such photographs is to obtain a painterly quality.
