A fine art photograph is both artistic and technically excellent. Each piece of artwork goes through three phases of creation:
Phase 1: Image Capture
My artwork is about slowing down and noticing the beauty and wonder in Nature. How Nature's beauty can provide tranquility, peace and joy.
Phase 2: Image Processing
I am a post-film photographer and I am especially interested in image processing. In the editing process, I do everything to the image that I deem necessary to express my creative vision of that image. Editing typically includes cropping, contrast and color adjustments, collaging of multiple images, cloning, painting and texture overlays, resulting in a painterly, non-photographic look.
Phase 3: Image Output
Images are printed on paper or canvas. Paper prints are printed using archival papers, and can be provided either just as a stand alone print or the paper print can be matted and/or framed. Canvas prints are dry-mounted to gator board, covered in two coats of print varnish and framed.
