Photography & Dreamscape Collections

From lens to illusion.

The Artist's Lens

I've had an interest in photography since I was a young child. I took photography classes when I was younger but didn't gravitate toward a camera until the last fifteen years. Once I became more familiar with my Nikon D3100 DSLR, I challenged my artistic eye in many ways, trying to capture life, light, and darkness in their most unique aspects. 
 
My photography is the source of much of my digital art. It also serves as inspirational content for my written works (eg. having an authentic picture of a scene or character or storm or etc. helps me write a description of it), as well as serving as the visual content for some of my paintings.
 
As my artistic eye evolves, so does my photographic ability - and the ability to create dreamscapes from the visions I capture.
 
Please enjoy these Collections, and if you see a shot that you'd a copy of, contact me and I'll add it to my DeviantArt profile so you can print it. As I have tens of thousands of photos, most of my pieces are not presently set up in my digital portfolio. But I'm happy to set it up for you.

Photography & Dreamscape Collections

A photography collection is a grouping of my photos around a specific event, experience or theme; dreamscapes are tweaked and tripped out versions of specific photo collections. For example, my Hawaii photo shoot from 2000 was adapted as a dreamscape; the original photos are not available in this collection (though I have them in my database).

My goal with these collections is to tell a visual story over 40-50 pictures, to capture the essence of an experience and express its synthesis. In most collections, I captured hundreds of photographs and determined a specific set of the best to carry forward into a collection.

Photographs in the collections below are shot with my Nikon D3100 DSLR or Samsung Android and edited with Adobe Photoshop or Photo Studio Pro, unless otherwise specified. All photos were taken and edited by Artemis Sere.

Thank you for taking the time to explore the Photography & Dreamscape Collections of Artemis Sere.
 
Yours truly,
