The Colorscapes collection is Anne Miller’s response to the mysterious beauty she finds in the shape, color, and texture of ordinary things. Isolated through her camera’s viewfinder and abstracted from their surroundings, small extracts of the world come alive in her imagination, provoking fanciful stories about her subjects. After capturing her images, Miller enjoys refining them in her digital darkroom where she adjusts light, color, and composition to highlight the elements that compelled her to make each photograph in the first place.
BIO: Anne Miller played flute in the Tobrini Woodwind Quintet and as a soloist before an interest in computers led her to become a software engineer. Miller’s foray into photography began with a 35mm film camera and a home darkroom where she taught herself traditional printing methods. The advent of powerful digital tools led to combining her interests in computing and photography.
Miller now works exclusively with digital cameras and uses a variety of image editing software. Although she is influenced by numerous artists, Miller’s imagination and powers of observation are her strongest influences on her work. Miller’s photographs have been featured in many exhibits in the Sacramento area. She also gives artist talks and photography workshops in the region.
