About Ben Freeman
I have been drawing things since I was a kid, and got into photography way before there were digital cameras, but didn't get serious about my art until around 1978. I studied on my own for a bit, then got a bachelor's degree in art from Sacramento State University in Sacramento CA in 1982. I have worked in many different mediums along the way mainly because one would not satisfy all of my artistic ideas. I have worked in glass engraving, jade carving, sculpture, photography, textiles, cloisonne, ceramics, and watercolors. I also have worked as an artist in the sign industry for about 15 years, and you can occasionally see that aspect in a few of my images which have a more commercial feel. I am now working with digital photography and digital artworks derived from the photography. I tend to look for the images in life that might get missed by most folks as they zoom by in the rush of life, and for the patterns and "inner artworks" that I find when looking closely at some subjects.
In my digital artworks I have a style that I call digital watercolors, which resembles the style of watercolor work I used to do when I actually painted them by hand. I was always a bit more illustratorish than the traditional watercolor style. What I like about this style is that viewed up close it becomes more obviously watercolorish, but when viewed from a few steps back it starts to take on more photographic qualities. Most of these tend towards a sort of impressionistic style, with some being more abstract in nature. The advent of photo manipulation programs such as Adobe Illustrator and GIMP have made it possible for me to get the images in my head to come out the same in the finished product. The color saturation is much more of what I want than anything I used to be able to create with actual paints and such.
My digital photography, and the film photography that I used to do are usually of an abstract nature as I tend to zoom in on subjects to find the interesting patterns and "inner artworks" as mentioned in the digital artworks section above. I also look for interesting contrasts and textures. I like interesting architecture and have many abstract architectural images in my galleries.
I can't restrain myself to one single style of artwork. There is too much out there of interest that sparks my imagination so I don't want to limit myself and miss what could be a great image.
