F M Kearney
F.M. Kearney first memories were being fascinated with bright, vivid colors. As a child, the rainbow of 64 colors spilling out of a Crayola Crayon box often mesmerized him. Although he had never even heard of most of the colors, he knew their creative potential was great.
“In later years, my interest in coloring shifted to photography - my interest in color, however, was steadfast. For a photographer with a passion for color, nature was probably one of the most obvious choices of subject matter. Although I shoot a fair number of landscapes, I tend to specialize in photos of flowers. Their varied shapes and colors provide endless creative possibilities.”
“Much of my work in photography stems from my desire to show things in different and unusual ways. Whenever I read about and new photographic technique, I always like to see how I might improve upon it by tweaking it with my own personal style. Many of my floral images are prime examples. Not only does color play a key role; some images are products of a compilation of as many as six or seven different techniques. The results, I feel, are truly unique.”
