TECHNIQUE

 

I have been a photographer for years, but felt that images alone would not capture what I was after. Eager to create a web exhibit, I felt that this was the perfect oppurtunity. I wanted to take advantage of the Internet's ability to display images, sound, and text, so I began to create digitally. However, all of the these images started out on film. All of the effects where created in the camera [Nikon F3] combining flash [Nikon SB-12] and available light. I used software only to resize the images and to change the density and contrast, just as I use an enlarger. I realize that digital image making affords much more but I wanted to stay true to the photographic medium for this exhibit. This project is my analogue to digital transition.
