Digital photography can be a simple recording of scenes and events, but it can also be the starting point of an adventure into a world of light and colour. They say that variety is the spice of life, so why should digital images be restricted to any particular style or subject, or confined to conventional techniques and methods?
When an image appears on the computer screen, it starts to develop a personality of its own, as if it wants to be portrayed in a certain way. Rather like painting a portrait, my task is to listen, be guided by the qualities of each individual image and try to bring out its full potential.
The same principles apply to any subject, whether a landscape, seascape, flower, impressive monument or detailed study. Each is unique in its own way and demands its own special treatment.
Welcome to my world of digital photography and image making!
Blue and white china has a long history, going back through antique English and European pottery to ancient examples of Chinese hand-painted porcelain. Modern photographic techniques and careful toning by means of digital processing bring this elegant style right up to date for contemporary tastes.
