Photoessays/Bodies of Work

– Using color properly in landscape photography
– Using gradient maps to increase the luminosity of portraits
– Mind blowing lighting effects filter in PS

– Making your first photo book Some advice from Thomas Heaton, British landscape photographer. Unlike an exhibit, a book can be available to many more people, over a longer period of time. It is worth considering.

I’m working on a new book called “Winter Marsh: An exploration of color” with images and verse:
The warm sunrise flowed like liquid gold over the marsh
And swirled with the cool shadows of night
To gently overwhelm them,
Slowly taking control of the day.
