An Introduction to Roy Rasera's
Roy's photography captures those
rare serendipitous moments in nature when the real and
surreal coexist. Through careful frame balancing,
lighting, and timing, Roy presents amazing images of
depth and presence while appealing to the soul with their
untainted simplicity and truth.
His family road-tripped across the
country each summer for seven years, taking a different
route each time. This exposure to the vast beauty
of America and its national parks played a significant
role in shaping Roy's eye for revealing the novel within
the familiar. While others would take pictures of
the canyon, he would focus on a flower at its
edge. While others would take pictures of the encourageable
chipmunks, he would explore the vast shadow and cloud
patterns on the distant mountains.
Digital photography is Roy's medium
of choice, though he was experientially trained on standard SLR manual
cameras since he was a child. Roy believes in
preserving the natural moment as it was, rather than
through massive digital editing. Hence, all of his
photographs are what he saw, as he saw it, with little
or no digital editing.
Most of Roy's photography falls
into two broad categories: Landscapes
and Floral. He also
offers Floral Greeting
Cards, and various apparel
and gifts at his
CafePress online store.
Roy's photos are all developed on
Kodak Duralux film paper to preserve their color.
All mats, tape, and backing boards are acid-free, and all
