My photographic artwork represents my personal perception of the landscape. I treat light as the subject and I use nature to demonstrate that light. This approach requires constant observation while in the field and an understanding of the nature of light itself.
From vision, to viewfinder, to software, to fine art print, I infuse my personal style into my work at each stage of the process. Remarkable detail, thoughtful composition, and a full range of contrast are my favorite tools that I utilize to create my expressive fine art prints.
Tim Herschbach grew up in a small town in Oklahoma and spent his childhood playing outdoors in the woods, fields, streams, and lakes. He became interested in art at a young age. Tim had dabbled in photography, from his first 110 film camera given to him by his first grade teacher, to the Minolta SLR he chose as a high school graduation present. However, it wasn’t until December of 2009 that Tim discovered how the balance between art, technique, and the technology that drives modern photography mirrored his own interests. He decided to pursue digital photography, although he had no idea that his hobby would soon grow into a new career track as a professional artist.
Tim began scouring the internet, reading every book he could get his hands on, and watching countless hours of videos on subjects like composition and image processing. He submitted photos to be critiqued by professional photographers and attended workshops about light and vision. He took on voluntary photography projects at work and at his church and he picked up some small family portrait projects here and there for family and friends. With every photograph Tim created, he grew closer to being able to use photography as not just a way to capture a beautiful scene or subject, but as a viable method of communicating his vision, a fundamental principle of fine art.
In the summer of 2013, Tim Herschbach left his full time position as an IT specialist at a Houston television station and put his full devotion into his art career. Since then, over one thousand of his photographs have found new homes in private collections from Washington State to Massachusetts.
Due to current events, I’ve postponed my home gallery Grand Opening until further notice. Hopefully, this blight will blow through and everything can get back to normal. Until then, please visit my portfolio online at http://www.herschbachphotography.com.
