Shelley’s Fine Art Photography has a number of influences. From the 16th and 17th century Dutch Masters through the Chakras used in Yoga and contemporary, paired back minimalism.
She creates her photographs by using window light, something that comes from her original influences. This adds a natural feel to the textures and colours giving a depth that studio lighting can often lose. She manipulates the light, reflecting it into spaces that need it or shading other elements. It can take many hours (if not days) to construct her photographs.
There are messages and symbolism in most of her Fine Art photographs, if you choose to look for them. Some of them can be a little hard to find
Some of her recent photographs concentrate on textures and shapes – often the spaces in between the elements create yet more areas for contemplation. She’d love to hear your views on them, please feel free to use her Contact page.
The best way for you to view her Fine Art photographs is to visit one of her exhibitions. Her photographs look so much better in “real life” than they do on a computer screen, so why not look at her Exhibitions page to see where she is showing her work? She’d love to welcome you to one of her shows.
