The word “transformation” might best describe my goal with the photos I take. Even though I’ve mastered the technical aspects of photography, you’d probably never be able to tell from looking at some of my finished images. And that suits me just fine! I’m not trying to show a literal interpretation of my subject. My favorite part of the picture-making process is adding a liberal helping of Art Sauce in what we call “the digital darkroom.” That’s where my creative energy takes charge, crafting abstracts rich in color and texture. The end result is usually unrecognizable from whatever I was photographing. Sometimes even I forget what the original image was!
