Retired living in Michigan's Upper Peninsula (Copper Country)USA., 4yrs. Naval Aerial Photographer Jacksonville Fla.(NAS).,Cuba '60. , JPL (NASA), Pasadena Calif., wedding photographer, free lance photographer, ceramic studio owner and instructor (past), making industrial TV commercials. I'm mainly a picture taker of old buildings, windows, doors, barn sides and anything made of old wood and rusted objects. I love creating with my camera first, then with the computer enriching colors and bringing out the hidden textures of the subject material in wood, stone, water and foliage and metal objects, I use the computer as my darkroom, and I hope to learn something new every time I press the shutter.
p.s. I don't play by the book., and I over saturate a lot., just my style, as the saying goes., I like mixing it up.
My Photography Equipment:
Kodak Z7590 (a old clunker) Schneider Kreuznach Xenar wide angle lens.
Hi Don, I hope this is the right page to get in touch with you. I clicked on the email message I received from you and it did not take me to your page. I would have responded sooner, but I have been sick with the worst sore throat and cold I have had in years. You still show up on my friends list. Let me know if this is the right page.
"Blue Velvet 3" It's a beautifully observed and realised shot Don. The composition, contrast, saturation and exposure are all perfect in my opinion and for such an apparently simple image there's so much to look at.
The tones and textures in the wall punctuated by the nail heads, the light on the window frame, the creases in the fabric leading the eye to the shreds and through to the other window on the opposite side of the room and then the light outside beyond that window. It's a masterpiece my friend and as I said, I hope you're very proud of it, I know I would be.
