Aimee 2004

I've been lucky enough to have been able to photograph my friend Aimee since 1994, she is for lack of a better word, a warrior in many ways (but not in a literal military way). This one is from some early digital studio work & shot with a Nikon D100, my first DSLR. This file was RAW converted with PS 2018 and then converted into a B & W image with Silver Effects Pro.

Carol, Tyson 1999

I've been into the archive this week scanning negatives, its a good way to revisit older works and rediscover some work that you might have overlooked.

St. Roch's Shrine, New Orleans, La. 1990-91 Negative Scans

I decided to pull together a portfolio of work I've been doing at the shrine of cures at St. Roch's cemetery in New Orleans. The shrine has actually changed a lot over the years and was recently closed for more than a year while it was repaired due to damages by termites. Hopefully it will reopen soon.

Revisiting older works

I've been planning a new portfolio to my work with the Mardi Gras flambeaux in order to propose an exhibition. With that in mind I've been going thru some of the older works.

This work was done in 2003-2004 and hot with my first DSLR, a Nikon D100. For its day it was a pretty advanced camera, but was terrible at ISO 400 or above, lots of noise an of course a pretty small sensor. Still the new version of photoshop 2019 does a much better job at the RAW conversions.
