  2. hey John…I am curious about your recent photos…are you shooting 120 and scanning the negs? are you doing any digital manipulation? and are they printed on the epson? (the naturalism series) (they are really stunning by the way)

  3. Hi Janice, thanks for the compliment, coming from a pro like you means a lot to me!

    The Dog House Blues image is 120 film scanned and tweaked in PS CS3. The other two are digital photos. Not much manipulation in the Creek image but the Swan is a composite of two photos I took in San Fransisco last year (2008).

    I’ve been liking the square format, hence the 120 look.

    I’m printing on an Epson 4800 Pro and an R1800. The 4800 does an amazing job.

    And I’m totally flattered you’re checking out my recent work.

  4. this swan feels like it is from some other time period. like before photography was invented! well done.

  5. My wife and I bought a framed print of this at the YAW Gallery in Whitehorse the weekend before last. We love it and what a lot of beautiful artwork you do, and for such affordable prices.

  6. Thanks Terry, really appreciate your support. As far as pricing goes, it’s always hard to know what to charge.

  8. Hi Garry,
    Sorry, I’m not familiar with the artist you mentioned. Is he supposed to be from the Yukon?

So great if you could take a minute and leave your thoughts on this.
