All of the images in this book, and many more are available on my website http://dick-botkin.artistwebsites.com/index.html
I got my first camera, a Kodak Brownie, when I was six or seven years old, and I've been hooked on the art of photography ever since. A year or so later, I got my first processing and print making kit and I began to realize that I could be as creative, if not more so, in the darkroom than in the field. Over the years, my cameras and darkroom got more complex, giving me more creative tools to work with. About 10 years ago, I traded film, chemicals, tanks, trays, and the smell, for a digital camera and a copy of Photoshop. I never looked back. I have been involved with photography for as long as I can remeber, but I have never aspired to be a Photographer. My goal is to capture and present to you, my audience, moments in time that otherwise might be missed as we all go about our daily routines. The Camera and Computer Software are the tools I use to create fine art, just as the painter uses his canvas,brush and oils.
