Not Just a Fly Over State

Chapter 1: Monument Rocks

I ventured out West to start my new project, "Not Just a Fly Over State". I want to highlight parts of my home state that even long time Kansans haven't seen. First up was the large chalk and limestone formations found south of Oakley, KS known as Monument Rocks, or "The Chalk Pyramids". More about these incredible formations soon.

 

Chapter 2: Grinter Farms

My travels around Kansas don't always need to take hours to get to from Lawrence. Chapter 2 is about Grinter Farms, a row crop farm between Lawrence and Tongonoxie that grows sunflowers after the row crops are harvested. Each September the hills turn bright yellow when the majority of the sunflowers bloom together. This is an incredible, short-lived sight that I cannot believe took me 30 years to hear about when it's only 15-20 minutes away from where I've lived most of my life.

A macro, fine art project

 

The first time Camron picked up a macro lens, he was enthralled at how much detail the world contains that we don't get to appreciate on a daily basis. Spending time with macro photography, Camron became obsessed with the colors and shapes that Mother Nature contains even more than the specific details. Through this project, he's aiming to express nature's beauty through shapes and color above all, with small parts of the object highlighted through shallow depth of field and selective focus. In the end, the overall feeling and mood of the photo is more important than recognizing the subject.
