The Abstract Landscape – Photography by Alain Baumgarten

When I first discovered Alain’s portfolio, I was immediately drawn to his masterful usage of bokeh and shallow depths of field. This dreamlike effect gives his images a surreal quality that is filled with mystery, and it’s a method that I use often in my own work. His portfolio is a great source of inspiration to photographers of any field, and I’m thrilled to introduce him to the Photography Blogger community.
