Let’s give a warm welcome to Richard Paul Weiblinger, who through photography captures the everyday in an extraordinary way.
Through my photographs I reveal a passion for exploring our world and how my work
transforms everyday views and objects into art. I prefer subjects that lead to images with
chromatic strength and use creative lighting to not only illuminate my subjects but also to give them a dream-like, surreal quality. The process of photography allows me to pursue the art of transforming everyday objects into images that progress from everyday to art. I am self-taught and utilize a variety of lighting techniques as well as the manipulation of natural light going beyond simple illumination to create truly unique photographs.
I consciously employ traditional as well as innovative lighting techniques to create my final images. I generally choose subjects with vibrant colors; in addition, I have become increasingly intrigued by the interaction of color and light and have utilized a relatively new post processing technique; HDR (High Dynamic Range) to further explore this interaction. When people see my work, I would like them to find a new appreciation of the world around them.
My current goal is to build on my prior experience and to challenge myself by refining my personal artistic style and creative qualities. Hopefully my work speaks for itself, and gives enjoyment to the viewer. Each person will view my images a little differently and that is as it should be.
