    • For years my art photography was b&w only because I had complete control in the darkroom. With color I had to send it out to be printed and was never never satisfied with what I got back. Then, along came the digital darkroom and that was fixed…complete control in color from capture to print!

      In this image, the subject was stationary. I watched him for 10 minutes and I couldn’t even see him breathe. What I waited for was the people in the background to be positioned in an interesting way. For me, that’s what makes it work.

  1. I understand. I was not happy for the most part about the return on the color prints I got back either. And now I’m learning digital and I love that. For the first time, I will be the one who decides what my images look like on paper.

    This is also what I love about your work. The way you waited for the folk in the background to become an interesting part of the image. Most don’t even take that into consideration when they release the shutter.
