About Dave:

Our lives are filled with noise, clutter, “emergencies”, deadlines, and rapid fire decisions. While some of these are necessary, there is a need for a balance, a grounding force, to keep life in perspective. The prospect of bringing some calm to an otherwise busy life is my driving influence.

About "Spirit of the Wave":

Every wave is different. They are powerful, they are fluid, they are colorful and can be a different color in ten minutes, they are serene and ominous and they each come with their own "Spirit". I wanted to capture their movement, their colors, their strength and agility. I wanted to capture the feeling of being out in the water among these gentle, and sometimes not so gentle, forces of nature. A traditional snapshot style photo would have been so recognizable that our intellectual minds would have taken over, and quickly cataloged yet another wave. So instead I employed impressionistic photography techniques moving the camera with each wave for a second or so while the shutter was open. Before I started to shoot these waves, I studied them for a set or two. I observed how they built their strength, how they dumped their energy and how the returning wave interacted with the next one. Waves early in the set interact differently with each other than those later in the set. Each location and each wave in the set seems to have it's own personality and I began to feel as if I knew these waves. I really enjoyed the engagement I had in moving the camera and capturing the spirit of these waves. I hope you enjoy them and feel their unique qualities.
