The life a photographer isn’t always filled with glorious forays into the landscapes of the World. Most of my time is spent in “the lab” creating these images using creative techniques to enhance the true feeling of the scene. Many of the truly wild places around Toronto are at least 1.5 hours away, thus my reluctance to hop in the car and drive off during the weekdays…including traffic, which Toronto is notorious for, I’ll be extremely frustrated sitting in the car for hours – not exactly the zen moments in life I look forward to.
Instead, I focus my efforts during the weekdays by firing up the computer and developing a new piece of artwork. I use Lightroom and Photoshop exclusively – they are the best programs for post-processing on the market. After many years of use, I’ve developed very advanced techniques of how to convey feeling into the image. There is almost nothing I cannot achieve using these programs…the only limit is my imagination!
Attached is a photo of what that post-processing looks like. Layer after layer are created, with masks concealing and revealing specific areas of interest. Explaining every process is something I will do in the future – I will likely create a processing video! But for now, if you have any questions please feel free to contact me
