As a fine art photographer and digital print maker, I look for the beauty, the unusual, or the irony in the details of a scene. I particularly like to zoom in for a close look at a subject which might be ordinary if seen in normal perspective. I also use atmosphere, composition, and light to dramatically enhance a subject and to impart a sense of place to landscapes or cityscapes. Reflection, color, texture and contrast are also dimensions I explore and adjust to make an image more memorable. My work with digital equipment and programs has allowed me to create images and photomontages with which I hope to provoke thought and in which I encourage the viewer to participate. Some photographs beg to be altered or to join others to make a statement or express an emotion. Digital enhancements, addition or deletion of color, and selection of the most suitable substrate can often best convey an image’s message.
