I am privileged to have an solo exhibit of my photography at the West Linn Public Library, in the Community Room, from May 1 through May 31, 2019.
A photographer can preserve a moment in time by combining artistic vision and technical tools. Each of my images has a special meaning for me. For each, I can recall the light and the unique photographic aspects of the scene. I am fortunate both to live in Oregon and to have the ability to travel to photograph. Oregon and the west are magical places where one can capture the extraordinary beauty in simple natural things.
For many years, I used black and white film and printed in the traditional darkroom. I now photograph digitally with a high-resolution camera, and do post processing in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
All photographs are manipulated. A two dimensional piece of paper is not reality; black and white is not reality; the colors in photographs are not real either. Just choosing where to place the corners in a composition requires a conscious decision. I have modified the color in some images as I have modified the tonal relationships in black and white, both traditionally and digitally to produce images that please me.
