Digital photography allows the artist to translate that which is present in the real world into that which is in the mind of the artist – his vision.
The camera and lens capture the depth and detail as well as crops the image in an effort to bring order out of chaos. Post-processing allows for the enhancements to the raw image which fulfill this vision. Finally, like anything in life, the end result is limited by the raw input.
All three are integral in fulfilling this vision.
My goal is to create images that translate the real world to my vision of fine art. Fine art adds a third dimension. It becomes classic – something that doesn’t go out of style. It is quality vs. quantity. It becomes more than a picture someone took – it appears as a painting someone created.
