Michigan Effect

Tom Gifford's avatar Tom Gifford

This has taken over a year and a half to perfect the process of making a sheet of acrylic glass the shape of Michigan. This almost seemed impossible when I first imagined it but it kept replaying it over and over again in my head of how to make this reality. After many trial and error attempts I soon came up with a solution. The process was so groundbreaking that I now only use this method for my landscape photography. I think of Michigan in two different moods. energetic and calmness, Energetic because when you take a trip to the U.P you have a sense of energy. There is so much to do and many so hikes to take. The U.P gives you the energy to move forward just like the Northern lights they give you the energy to stay up all night. Calmness because when you are in the lower peninsula there is relaxing beaches and beautiful sand dunes. There is so much beauty around you, There is nothing better then the days you lay in the sun at the beach.
