About the Photos
The majority of my background is in film photography with an emphasis on darkroom technique. Now I shoot digitally, but I haven't been able to let go of the philosophy that capturing the image is merely half the job. I believe that the raw photo tells only part of the story and the remainder is told by the processing. Though I do not like to dramatically alter the nature or purity of the image with things like saturation, luminance, blurring, and other effects I do like to use toning to achieve a film look. Sometimes restraint can be the hardest thing to practice, but I believe the saying; "Less is More" is profoundly true when it comes to photo processing.
