Fine Art Photography
What it means to me...

It is all about creating that stunning final print, the tangible, that you can hold in your hands and admire for its beautiful and thought-provoking composition, perfection in technical execution, and meticulous attention to detail in creating the print itself.

My Digital Darkroom Process
The choice of my camera equipment affords me the following minimal workflow in Lightroom (LR) and Photoshop (PS):

  • Import images using LR at the default settings for my equipment
  • Adjust the Exposure in LR, if needed
  • Export to TIFF and open in PS
  • Fix white-balance for color accuracy
  • Do minimal Dodging and Burning if/as needed
  • Apply a few Curves layers to get the look I want
  • Remove any dust spots
  • And that’s it!
What I DON’T DO in LR and PS is also equally important here:

  • NO Unsharp Masking
  • NO Sharpening
  • NO Layer Masks
  • NO Gradient Masks
  • NO HDR
  • NO Editing-Out Content (except for dust spots)

It is this process that helps me bring integrity to my photography and create some of the cleanest, film-like digital prints I have ever seen.
