Chip Phillips… landscape photographer
I remember seeing these brilliantly colored landscapes a few years ago and clicking on them to see who had taken them. It was, I was to find out a very talented photographer from Spokane, Washington named Chip Phillips.
Chip is more than a visual artist he is also a professional musician. I have often thought that there was a deep connection between music and the visual arts. The two are similar in many ways. They can both evoke a mood or feeling. They can also transport you away from where you are to a more pleasant place and time. That’s something that Chip’s photographs do so very well.
A few days ago I wrote about choosing between a few thousand mediocre photos taken all times of the day or choosing smaller number but of much higher quality. Visit Chip’s website and see the results. Each and every photograph is a work of art unto itself. All different. All filled with emotion, light and feeling. All powerful and evocative. Editing is a skill lost on so many photographers in a rush to show everything they shoot. Chip’s website is tightly edited. The result. Stunning!
The low light adds power and drama to the scenes. That isn’t possible shooting during the middle of the day.
