This ready to hang, matted framed art piece features abstract patterns formed by ice on a frosty window. Kurt Shaffer has been a self-taught photographer since age 13 (1970). He continues to learn the fine art of photography, especially in this fantastic digital age. Though Kurt does not manipulate his fine art photography, digital enhancement is a valuable tool in his business. He states that if he were to change anything in his work it would be to make it look more like it was when he took the original photo. Kurt's love of the earth feeds his photographic creativity and defines it as his truest form of therapy. When photographing people, capturing the nature in his subjects is Kurt's intent and what he strives to do. An 8x10 giclee print under acrylic in an 11x14 black frame.
