This is my favorite image in the series. The intense orb of pink stands in refreshing contrast to the tangles, which only loosely centers around the pink shape.
Here continues a short series that I'm really proud of. I created the warm background by beginning the exposure with a bright blue flash against a smooth shiny surface. And the thin black tracery, or "plexus," is created by the bright white lights of a Christmas tree in the distance. And my abstracts are ultimately created via color-inversion of light-writing experiments, so the blue flash turns yellow and orange -- the thin white streaks become deep black threads.
The acronym, P.E.P.P.E.R., stands for " stands for "purely experimental photography produces exciting results." I combine seemingly random exposure techniques with obscure or mundane subject matters. When all is finished, a surprise emerges. The mundane, micro, and meaningless is revealed beautiful, grand, and purposeful. Nothing is meaningless. The experiment works.
I use 100% in-the-camera photo techniques, with the exception of very sparse editing, mostly of color-inversion.
