Black and White studies

Black and White forces the Photographer to concentrate on lighting and composition. I am constantly adding new stuff so check back for more on occasion.
This is by far my highest regarded image by viewers. The only digital treatment that this image has recieved is a desaturation and contrast adjustment.

Children in the summer time. The crow in the upper right corner makes an appearance in a lot of my photography.

This was taken at Banff, Canada during the forest fires of 2003. The sky was so strange that this image was not manipulated to demonstrate the desaturated quality of the sun's rays filtering through hundreds of miles of forrest fires. It snowed ash for days while I helmed the Photography section of the Cogswell/Banff Psychogeography Project. At the presentation of more than 400 photos from the town of Banff, the Banff Art Center anounced that our installation was the largest that had ever been displayed in such a short amount of time. Hard work! No sleep! Yeehaw!

That same railing is featured here where you can see the effect of the smoke clouds on the sun's rays. This was by far the most sureal photo shoot that I have ever been witness to.
