Chicago the Windy City

Steven Tharp's avatar Steven Tharp

Grand Rapids is not far from both Chicago to the West and Detroit to the East. Since I grew up near Chicago and I have always felt that Chicago represented an important part of my past and my future. Chicago is an exciting and vibrant town that stretches along 26 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, the setting is critical to what has become the hub of the Midwest. Photography is a way for me to create a snapshot in time that helps to capture the unique atmosphere that is Chicago. I find good photography to be a unique mixture of both Art and Science. I hope my photos offer a unique perspective that comes from the Artist in me that tries to find creative ways to see things that are often missed by others. The science comes in finding the way to capture light with an understanding of how a balance of shutter speed and exposure are used to create an image that accurately shows a view of the world around us. My entry is four 11 X 14 photographs framed to 16 X 20, I took the pictures, edited the images and printed out the prints on my professional printer, I hope will show the viewer Chicago in a way that they have never seen it before.
