Emotional Impact

Above, one of my favorite photos, photographing people.  Yes, not so easy.  This image, was originally taken with my Canon G-III QL17 (awesome camera), using slide film.  Through the miracle of scanning, I am now able to update the image with color and filter enhancements, all for emotional impact.  Rest in peace, Barbara Bowen Splain, and know that you are remembered.  Yes, a photographic record can help do that.

Above, "Seated Man", a charcoal sketch from my design school days.  I do miss the times when I sketched, every day, in a variety of media.

Moss Beneath Our Feet

Welcome, 2014.  The first post of the new year features an image captured long ago, using one my favorite mediums of yesteryear, slide film.  This image was captured with my Nikon FE2.  With slides, you were never entirely sure whether or not you had the image you were seeking, until you finished the roll of film, and waited out the processing.  At the end, the results were unforgiving.  This wasn't print photography which allowed for some latitude in processing, cropping and color correction.  When you captured the image, the result was fixed, well, until now, with scanning and the possibility of digital enhancement.
