Hello and welcome. Hope you enjoy the images I have posted. Please do not reproduce them without my permission. Most are available as note/greeting cards or as prints/enlargements. Thank you for visiting my site and your comments.
Many have asked about the Header image above, which I named 'Eerie Genny'. It was originally shot with film [taken on the shore of the Genesee River near the Univ. of Rochester]. During the darkroom development, I flashed a light above the tray. The process, known as 'solarization', produces eerie, ghostlike effects; some have mistaken this image as an infra-red photo. Some 35+ years later, I scanned and digitized the print, and did a little modern day editing, and, voila.

Image City Assignments: Cemetery Shots

It has been quite some time since I last posted pics from my Image City Assignments series. To refresh your memory, I meet once a month with a group of other photographers to view and critique our photos. A subject is assigned in advance by our two mentors, who are professional photographers and members of a group that owns/operates the Image City Gallery. This assignment was to bring in several images that say clearly they were shot in a cemetery.
The first group below were shot in color as RAW images with my Canon 60D, and later converted to B&W in Lightroom.

The remaining two images were with my Kodak Z1015, which had been converted to shoot infra-red. One of the interesting features of shooting in IR is that a blue sky is darkened and green grass/leaves appear white.
