The city of 100 spires! Prague was one of the few cities of central Europe that was not damaged in the World Wars (I and II). The city still has it's amazing architecture throughout the urban landscape. I hope you will enjoy a few moments of this amazing city.
FINE ART PANORAMICS - The images below are shot with a Noblex 150, Medium format camera. The film image is approximately 9 times the size of a regular 35mm slide image. With this large film size we can print extremely large and tack sharp images. The Noblex system lens does not have a focusing function. It only shoots to infinity. There are of course drawbacks to this, but the advantage to this system is that it creates incredibly clear and sharp images. This past year I have added a digital camera and technique to my panoramic efforts. I now shoot with a Canon 5D and a panoramic frame system on my tripod. This allows me to shoot mutiple images and then digitally stitch them together in the computer process. This allows for huge file size and the ability to print with the same quality as the Noblex film camera at any size needed.
Please enjoy your vist and look around.
Ah! - Florence, the city of masters. I spent the first week of the new year, 2010, in this lovely city. Even in the cold winter months this city shines with beauty. Please enjoy.
I have tried to capture the essence of both Black and White and Color with this portfolio series, entitled “SHINE THROUGH”.
Images are captured on film and scanned. I then overlay a copy of the image with Photoshop software. The overlay image is desaturated of color and a portion of each overlay is then removed to reveal the true color of the original. In reviewing my inventory of thousands of images for this portfolio, I have found very few meet the criteria for a excellent black & white image along with an interesting window to shine through. The very few that meet this criteria, offer an exceptionally distinct and fresh new image to ponder.
Each image is scanned to the highest possible quality. There is no manipulation or enhancing of my images in the digital process, other than the black and white overlay.
Each of the “Shine Through” series is a signed and numbered limited edition of 25 prints. As the prints approach the 25 limit edition the price will increase.
