Creative color photography from Creative Sparks photographer Nancy Alderman

This week’s featured image from Creative Sparks is by photographer Nancy Alderman. Nancy has been exploring water as a theme for the past few months. She brought this water photograph to share with us last night.

I enjoy the quiet simplicity of this image. The ripples in the water, the blue color and the squiggled reflections of the dock are all very soothing. Nancy brought the image in as a rectangle. We decided the photograph became more about composition, lines and color and less about location when we cropped it to the square you see here.

Compositionally the photograph is a study in lines. Emotionally the image has a beautiful sense of quiet and solitude. Very nice!

Creative Sparks is a unique photography class and creativity workshop held on Thursday evenings in Vero Beach, Florida. Students are guided to discover their creative vision with nationally recognized artist/photographer Aric Attas in a small group setting.
