|My Occupation||Fine Art Photographer|
I began my odyssey through the zones of focus more than thirty years ago. For most of that time my equipment was medium format camera systems. My work was primarily in B&W, with some forays into color. As digital technology evolved it became apparent that was the way to go. I went kicking and screaming into digital via the image processing route first. Finally the digital camera demonstrated it's capacity to provide a truly fine and viable image. With that the metamorphosis was complete.
I deal with a wide range of subject matter in the form of, literally, people, places, and things. This approach has reduced itself to about a dozen portfolios I update on a random basis determined by subject matter of interest at any given time.
I like to think that this approach avoids the problem of being 'pigeon-holed' down the path of a single subject matter venue.
|Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...|
I have put together a 'manual' on the making of the photograph using Photoshop CS and beyond.|
This is not about learning Photoshop, it is about developing an image into what we ultimately would like to call a photograph.
|Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...|
|To truly be reminded of the impact of the B&W photograph one only needs to be reminded of Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Alfred Eisenstadt, and others.|
|This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)|
|It would be really rewarding to find out this book revived your addiction to the B&W photograph as a truly fine work of art in its' own right.|
