PAD 5 GRIZZLY COUNTRY Bear by the WaterGrizzly Country - Bear - Wildlife

GRIZZLY COUNTRY - Photo #5

 

A grizzly bear stands by his pool, deciding whether to jump in the water.  I assure you, if I were this bear during August in Tennessee, I'd be jumping in!  We had sweltering temperatures over the past few weeks.  It made photography sessions limited and uncomfortable.  I've found by wetting down a towel with cold water and draping it around the back of my neck, I was able to stand the temps long enough to be outside and photograph the wildlife and nature scenes I love. :)

 

You probably wouldn't know it from looking at the picture, but for this piece I used several of my textures layered in different ways over my original photo -- which was horrid, I might add, because this one was taken through a smeary glass window at the Memphis, TN zoo, and the overall color of the entire photo was kind of a sick green.  I mainly used the textures in this case to add depth to a photo which was too faded.  I also used them to adjust the color of the entire photo and to remove the greenish cast, as well as add more blue to the water.  Now the photo features brown and golden tones, which make a nice contrast to the cool blue of the water and the gray rocks.  All in all, I think it is now a suitable representation of art for the grizzly bear lovers out there!

 

InJoy,

Jai

I am a photographic artist living in Tennessee, and I love to spend my days in nature capturing life's most serene and peaceful moments, whether it be in landscapes, watching birds and wildlife, or simply enjoying the beauty of a simple flower. I hope you enjoy my work, and that it will bring a moment of serenity into your day. --Jai Johnson
