MUM faculty member Ken West is well known for his beautiful Iowa landscape photographs, which are really quite amazing! Here is a link to a video segment on the IPTV show Iowa Outdoors about his landscape photography: http://tinyurl.com/3qlzhag, and another link to his gallery of photos: Ken West Iowa Landscape and Nature Photography: http://sweetlightgallery.com.
A fourth generation professional photographer, Ken uses HDR, or High Dynamic Range Photography to capture all of the painterly hues and light, which he explains and demonstrates in the video. This beautiful photo is on the video from 5:10-5:15. You can see a larger clearer version of it by going to Wild Geese by Mary Oliver, photo by Ken West and clicking on it.
And the small colored abstract square you see next to the link in your finder at the top left, or on the right next to my comments, was taken from one of Ken’s photos and used as the blog picture, or icon, for The Uncarved Blog. You can see the photo at the bottom of How The Uncarved Blog got its name. Click on it and it will open up in a larger format.
Ken also collaborated with Jane Roman Pitt putting his images to her song, Iowa Gold, to create a beautiful video recorded with other Fairfield artists: Fairfield Artists and Musicians Share in Iowa Gold.
