Goth Photography By: WhiteOak

When we look up the word "Gothic" it means: a style of architecture originating in France in the middle of the 12th century. It is also related to designating the style of painting, sculpture, etc.

I happen to see a lot of beauty in old Victorian and/or Vintage Gothic sculptures. To photograph the kind of sculptures I am looking for; the most obvious place to photograph is in the cemetery. I have a great respect for the dead, so when I do photography in cemeteries, I try my best to never photo the name of the person who is buried in that spot and if by chance a name does come through I delete that section of the photo or will delete the photo all together.

After I upload the photos, I take them into another computer program and do adjustments and add special effects to enhance the photo and/or to make the photo look even older. I happen to find the Goth culture very beautiful; I love the uniqueness they bring to the world. That is another reason why I have labeled this series my Goth Series, because of the uniqueness of the shots I have taken.

I have my Goth Series located in my Halloween Zazzle Gallery at :WhiteOak's Halloween. I am always adding more designs, so please be sure to stop by often.

This Angel was one of the most beautiful unique old Angels in the Cemetery.
I love old Crosses especially Cross that look like this one.

About Me

Sandy Mertens, (also known as Sandyspider, sandyspiderbite and SandyM online, plus a few others not listed). Began online as an internet marketer and soon found a passion for writing. An online writer and researcher who enjoys photography, art, graphics art, web design and working on blogging.

Looking for a change of career, Sandy opened up her first website http://www.ebooktreesaver.com . With a premade template, she soon used this as a guide to learn HTML and create all her websites from scratch. The eBook site does not look anything like the original one.

A website directory was created to show where to find Sandy, http://www.sandyspider.com/ This directory is a work in process and has only a portion of where she can be found.

Discovering the creative side, she opened up several CafePress shops. A year later opened up her first Zazzle shop. She now has two shops:

Her designs can also be found on http://www.3drose.com under Sandy Mertens on 3Drose.. These designs are on Amazon. Type in the product listed from the website or her name in Amazon to find these products.
