I have heard of expressionism in regards to art (as in paintings), but not so much when it comes to photography. You can read more about Expressionism as an art form here. It was a light bulb moment, of sorts, for me. Much of my photography ends up being in this style and not necessarily on purpose. I have shaky hands, my vision is bad, and the wind is a constant battle in this part of Texas. None of these things lend themselves to tack-sharp nature photography.
I can sit here and moan and groan about not getting perfectly sharp, realistic results like my photographer friends do, or I can see it as an art form in its own right. I am choosing the latter. I am venturing head-on into the art known as macro expressionism and I am having a blast with it!

Here is what I captured this morning using that as-yet unidentified tree as a subject. I would love to hear your thoughts on this style of photography and, more specifically, on this photograph. There are no post-capture filters added to this image. Except for resizing so that I didn't explode Blogger, it is as it came straight out of the camera.
