Medium: Photography
Location: Emerald Society

My interest in photography began during my architectural studies in college.  The need to photograph conceptual and final design models introduced me to technical aspects of lighting, composition and the basics of macro photography. While in school I took a photography class that involved developing black and white film.  Shooting exclusively in black and white, I learned to find subjects with a wide range of contrast and strong textures. Over time I have gradually transitioned to digital photography.  My work as a technical graphic designer has provided me experience in Photoshop in addition to knowledge of color management principles and color correction techniques, useful working in the “digital darkroom.
