Someone asked me the other day "What is computer imaging?" I was surprised at the question because I thought the answer was obvious....I had been doing it for 9 years. But she really didn't know. So I explained what it was to me.
When necessary I use the computer as a natural extension of my camera to create images that otherwise would be impossible or impractical to photograph. I have placed several examples (below) on line for you to see. They are all problem solving situtions in which computer imaging has proved invaluable. All of the work below was either output as 8x10 transparencies, or as very large CMYK files on disk. Most of these images were base files of over 100 megs and some were as large as 500 megs with layers. I do all of my own work which is appreciated by many returning clients. I use a photographer's eye to solve retouching challanges.
To see how I composed and retouched to create the images first click on the one you wish to view below. This will show you a larger image and some comments on its production. Then click on the 'parts' button at the bottom to see the larger image and the parts on another page.
A portfolio can be sent to you upon request. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or call me at 818 625-5878 (let it ring).
