Ursula Abresch – My photography style of photo-impressionism allows for the abstraction of subjects and makes it possible to express feelings more fully without having to say a word. It allows me to put down thoughts, dreams, and fleeting moments in time with my pictures.

There is more to a moment than what you see with your eyes. There are the thoughts at the time, the sounds, the smells, what you touch … and more. All these are real and integral to my photography. This approach works very well for photographing trees.

I have a real love for trees. Where I live, there are many, and they are beautiful in all seasons of the year.  In winter they can look delicate and haunting.  In spring they shyly glow at first and then play hide-and-seek behind curtains of green. In summer they not only provide cool shade, but often also gently whisper their stories to anyone walking by. And in autumn, well, they shine in autumn!  They dress themselves up in many beautiful colours for a glorious dance before going back to the long sleep of winter.

I like to shoot trees as individuals or in groups.  I like to shoot them sharp and clear, standing out against rocks or hillsides or the sky. In camera, I like to use motion blur, zooming, multiple exposures, selective focus, focus-through to shoot trees.  Whatever works for the situation at the time. I also like to experiment in post-processing, to bring out the best in each shot. I use a lot of different techniques. I love going back to the same tree or group of trees, over and over, at various times during the day and in various seasons, getting to intimately know that particular place, eventually bringing out the character of the tree or group of trees with my photos. There are so many different ways to see them: gentle, dramatic, eerie, stark, powerful, delicate, peaceful, and on and on.  I often go out with a specific idea in mind, or a subject I want to capture, but then I find something different and go off in that direction.

I mainly work in colour. I treat colour as a subject, and as essential for the creation of a photo. I think my mind works in colour, and what colours are available in any situation are primal when deciding what to shoot and keep. My favourite colours are the naturals that bring to mind water and light and space. I tend to use secondary colours more so than primaries, except for blue, which I use a lot, even in tree pictures.  But even with blues, they tend to be watery, slightly to the green or the purple, hardly ever “pure”. I have a lot of gold tones in my pictures, to my eyes they are the perfect complement to the watery blues. I love oranges and greens and use them extensively in tree pictures. [Official Website]
