About Shane SettleShane Settle actively pursues dual careers in teaching and fine art photography. His passion for photography began as a journalism student and continued to blossom through college winning several awards for his photographs.
Shane has mastered a minimalist approach, relying on patterns and simplicity to evoke an emotional viewing experience. He looks for patterns and simple elements to photograph and tries to exclude the extraneous. He often shoots in low light conditions, cloudy weather, or fog. These conditions sometimes lend themselves to long shutter speeds, which reduce elements such as water and clouds to their simplest form and give the images an ethereal, almost painterly feel. It is Shane's hope that the viewer can appreciate God's creation in a unique, masterful way. His roots are grounded in black and white photography, although he also uses elements of color when an image is better expressed in this medium.
