The post-processingof a photographic image has been with us from the very beginning of photography and today's digital capabilities are just a natural extension of that.

Where I once had a small black-and-white film darkroom starting in the mid-1970's, I have used a digital darkroom since 2003.

I prefer keeping things real The photographs in these galleries are what my camera recorded, the exceptions are the images found within the Creative Cousins and High-Dynamic Range (HDR) galleries.

Ansel Adams was very excited about the possibilities of the digital image, and I believe he would have fully embraced such tools as Adobe Photoshop and the many different post-processing techniques now at our command.

When working on an image, I strike a balance between the moment (as I can best remember it) and taking advantage of what digital photography and post-processing have to offer.

In some cases, objects have been removed to avoid distractions, but absolutely nothing has been artificially inserted here. If so, the image is placed in the Creative Cousins gallery.

If you like what you see here, please support the artist by selecting an image to print or a custom coffee mug.

New images will be added as they are completed, so check back often to see what's new.

"I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs, because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it."
