New Featured Tasting Room Artist:

Butch Poole, Camera Infusions

Stop into RTR between Sept. 2015-Feb. 2016 to see Butch’s abstract take on nature photography using an iPhone.  All pieces available for purchase.

“I take a picture of the first subject, which the iPhone stores. Often I will place the subject on a white, black, or colored background sheet. The second subject could be nearby. But, many times I’ve hiked another 10 or 20 minutes until I see something that strikes me as that thing that might work for merging with the first shot. There are hikes where in 3-5 hours I have created 200 to 400 images by saving every step in a series of layerings. Other times I have spent many hours and only created 10 to 50 images. It’s a day of experiments; affected by what I learn each time I’m out there.” -Butch Poole
