Jury - 2020 CHESTER COUNTY STUDIO TOUR
My freelance photography covers a wide range of topics including landscapes, seascapes, adventure/sports, nature, flowers, birds, and historic sites. I have had a special interest in photography for over 45 years, utilizing it in my dental practice for patient documentation, education, public forums, and scientific publications.
My 2-volume textbook on 'Creative Digital Photography: The Evolution From 35 MM Film to High Definition Imaging and Beyond' was published in 2017. I have developed a fine arts photography collection which spans multiple genres of imaging.
Since retiring from practice, I have continued my imaging work with teaching participating in gallery exhibitions and photography fairs. I have been transforming a number of photographs into watercolor and oil digital paintings. The area of historical photographic documentation and sites dating to pre-colonial times is also an emphasis.
Waterscape subjects and nature with birds and flowers I have been doing, with imaging prints and canvas wraps in various sizes. I have been creating watercolor and oil painting renderings from my original digital photographs. Also, the offering of 'Triptychs', a series of three images combined as a trio wall collage or as large single prints of 3 images of the same genre/subject that match, including wide panoramics.
I have lately been concentrating on abstract closeup images, using colorful acrylic dyes and inks with bubbles and swirl patterns. My macrophotography in nature includes direct refractions through water droplets and micro-reflections through mirror imaging.
