Photographic Offerings

This page is all about My Photography

As the page develops there will be more links to gallery pages and informational pages about my experiences in the camera world

When I was five, my dad built a dark room in a second floor closet bathroom. If he was working there and it wasn’t past bed time, I was allowed to sit and watch the magic reveal itself in vaporous concoctions of chemistry and light. Way beyond my understanding and it fascinated me watching black and white images creep into existence under the subtle orange glow of a safe light.

I began to compose shots with the shutter open for two and three minutes at a time. In some instances while the shutter was open and the film accumulating light I would walk out into the scene and expose different elements with a portable flash head. Using different colored lighting gels over the flash head and I would paint with light.
