What is Digital Photographic Art?
It’s my never-ending quest to find new ways to present photography.
While traveling, I rarely have time to wait for that “perfect shot.”
But that never seemed to happen.
Now, I strive to create the best possible image with what I see before me.

Digital Photographic Art in the Digital Darkroom
Clouds, rain, harsh sunlight, a lack of contrast and distracting elements are all just obstacles to be embraced. With proper framing and a little exposure planning, I usually can walk away with an image ripe for a journey to my digital darkroom.
Peek Inside My Digital Darkroom
The photo is only a starting point.
Using masks and layers, I can bring out all the hidden potential of a photograph. Sometimes, it’s just a matter of making the shot pop; other times, I create an entirely new scene.
One thing I don’t do is change the actual content of the image.
It’s important to me that what I saw in my viewfinder is what you see on your screen. That means no removing people, brushing away distractions or inserting things that weren’t there.
Oh, and I don’t do HDR.
