I started taking pictures seriously when my parents got a Kodak Hawkeye Instamatic camera in the ’60s. It was a cheaper version of the Instamatic that you got by saving cigar bands. I remember using it at the New York World’s Fair and a school trip to Washington DC.
In college, I took a photography course that included developing and printing black and white photos. Unfortunately, I realized then that my colorblindness, only partial but still there, was not going to make it easy for me to print color photos in the traditional manner.
Digital photography changed everything. Not only could I process my own photos, I could apply artistic effects. Using Photoshop and various plugins like Buzz Pro I could create pseudo watercolors, oil paintings and some artistic effects you couldn’t even do using traditional media.
This site displays the result of my efforts. I hope you enjoy viewing them.
