About Danny Seidman
Seattle is among the wettest cities in America as measured by the number of rainy days each year. As a result, the area has developed a reputation of being a bleak and gloomy place far off in the corner of a map. I grew up here, and for much of my life had great disdain for the region's predictably gray and wet nine months of the year. However, it wasn't until I became interested in photography that I developed a true appreciation for the place I call home. To those who live here, it is well known that without the region's extended rainy season, the lush and pristine expanses of elegant allurement throughout the region could not possibly exist.
The Northwest has an abundance of natural beauty. From Seattle, one could get in a car and within a few hours be walking along the rugged and majestic Olympic Coast, wandering through dense rainforest, admiring any one of 6 stratovolcanoes in the area, sailing through the islands of the Puget Sound, standing high up on desert cliffs above the Columbia River, or getting lost in the vast crop-covered rolling silt dunes of the Palouse.
It is from this diversity of beauty and a newfound love for the outdoors that I have pursued photography as a means of artistically capturing the places I enjoy most. My style is not intended so much as to be documentarian, but rather as way of conveying both the mood and my own feelings while observing and being immersed in the most awe-inspiring places at their absolute best. Artistic liberties are used to achieve this end, but are limited to the basics of luminence, contrast, and saturation adjustments. Much of my the time I spend editing is simply meant as a way of overcoming the technical limitations of cameras in this day and age. These contraints are primarily eposure- and focus-related.
