ALL NATURE IS PICTURE

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATIONS

Depth of Field, Light-paintings and others

Things less complex are often better understood and more appreciated than those that appear too complicated. Simplicity is preferable to complexity. The power of simplicity is universal truth; its authenticity applies to all areas of life. Making more out of less in your visualizations will surprise you how powerful such images can be.

Experimenting with depth of field and light-painting tools proved to be quite a challenging endeavour in the digital age of photography.

Many years of auto-didactically experimenting and learning processes finally led Richard Fischer to where he is today, working in an entire new ambiance of expression: playing with human perception, fundamentally questioning traditional points of view, and thereby redefining the established observations.

Ongoing creative development and continual adjustments have allowed the artist to pursue new means and methods of visual transformation. The results are exhilarating, distinctive and, ultimately, one of a kind.

Light-painting, utilized in Richards art work is enlightenment, creating a unique depth of field that certainly will lead to profound deeper visions.

ART & SCIENCE

The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious.

It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science.

Albert Einstein

With his masterpieces of floral art Richard Fischer demonstrates the beauty of artistic photography with a profound breeze of science. His IUCN CEC membership testifies his successful approach.

Fischer’s concept goes beyond science to capture the essence and present it to a world wide audience. Beauty in its simplest form, mysterious and powerful.

Scientists estimate that many of Fischer’s flowers will have become extinct within our lifetime.
