“The man who is swimming against the stream knows the strength of it.” – Woodrow Wilson
I decided to go back to my college days when creating this series. I fell in love with color in college and always found a way to incorporate colored gels into my portraits with athletes. My professor also told me that anything that can be done in photo shop can be done in camera, and that always stuck with me. After creating some cool portraits with the gaussian blur and some filters, I decided to challenge myself and create some long exposure portraits all in camera. I contacted Robert Hamilton, because he is one of my favorite muses in Atlanta and we always seem to make magic!
