Bringing the outdoors, in
Waiting for the exact instant to press the shutter as the scene develops is sometimes very difficult. The lighting has to create shadows to bring out detail. The background has to be clean and without clutter. The scene must line up correctly to make the story happen. Spending hours waiting for it all to come together is an art. I am Charles McKelroy, a fine art photographer.
The joy of spending time out of doors in peace and quiet is priceless. But when that is not possible, it is still nice to be able to enjoy that peacefulness while relaxing in the comfort of your own environment. That is possible today by hanging beautiful images on the walls that surround you. Because we all need a release from time to time; a photograph is a perfect alternative to being there.
My artwork has been used in magazines, hung in galleries, homes, and offices, to bring the beauty of nature and our natural environment to people around the world. I personally selected each photograph shown in this gallery for its uniqueness and freshness. Each piece of art has its own story that reflects a special place in time. So as you look through the galleries, savor the moment and feel the freshness that each one represents to you. Read the story that accompanies each piece to learn the story behind the shot, because every photo tells a story.
