I explore my world with my camera. More recently with my 4x5. It is not convenient to take it every place, but I try.
I do 'adjust' my images sometimes in Photoshop to remove dust or wires or to make small contrast or color corrections. But unless otherwise stated my images are not manipulated. Since my job involves spending large amounts of time in front of the computer, the last thing I want to do is spend large amounts of time in front of the computer working on my images.
I believe if it is possible to capture what I want at the time of exposure, it better to spend the time then to get it right, rather than 'fix it in post'.
I hope you enjoy some of my images. Please feel free to leave any comments or suggestions you might have. Thanks for stopping by...
To see some really amazing photography, check out my favorites from other photographers on Flickr. I draw much inspiration from my fellow photographers and their endless creativity.
