When I was growing up in Chicago we lived in a ground-level flat. The window shades in the living room were always pulled down, lest passers-by on the sidewalk see all the way through the house. My bedroom had a window, but all I could see for the first 18 years of my life was the brick wall of the neighboring building three feet away. That perhaps explains my interest in “space”: vistas, views and panoramas. So as a photographer I seek images with windows you can fly through, trees you can glide over and mountains you can soar above.
I also like shooting rusty junk. I don’t know why.
Most of my images are HDR, high dynamic range. It’s a process of taking several photos of the same scene from the exact same spot but using different camera exposures for each click of the shutter. This results in images with greater depth and a wider range of colors, making it perfect for capturing the rocky morros, dramatic coastline and foggy harbors of the Central Coast.
Bill Rumber’s photography exhibition “A Window to Fly Through” can be viewed at Gallery at Marina Square throughout the month of April, from the 1st through the 29th.
