MOSHE LEVISFINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY
NEW RELEASE – “THE SECRETS OF A BONSAI”
Limited Edition – 1/10
While some of you may recognize this tree, many of you might not. Even if you took a photo of it in the past, you may think it’s a different tree. Well… It’s not. This is the Japanese Maple Tree located in the Portland Japanese Garden.
When it comes to famous photography spots and touristic locations I always try capturing what no one else has. When you google Japanese Maple Tree you’ll find thousands of images of that particular tree. Some say it is the most photographed tree in the US.
Unfortunately (and fortunately) most photographers focus on capturing this bonsai tree in whole and they completely forget that there is more to this tree.
After finally arriving at the Portland Japanese Garden, after craving a trip there, I found that magnificent tree and spent about three hours photographing it. One of the best models I’ve worked with (haha). There was no way in the world I let myself leave without unique images that show the inner beauty and complexity of that tree.
Moving around and composing different part of it opened my eyes to a more creative state of mind and if I didn’t have to eventually leave I would have probably spent another three hours there, documenting it from every possible angle, depth of field and focal length.
If there is one thing I’m sure of, is that I’ll show you more of this tree and its magic.
