The famous photographer Ansel Adams defined photography as “the combination of what we see and feel” and this is the goal and primary objective of my artwork. Ansel Adams was not just a master with a camera, but he was a master in the darkroom. Today, Photoshop is the equivalent, and actually much more than the traditional film darkroom. Ansel Adams taught a process called “visualization” that combines a photographer’s skills with a camera with his/her refined skills in the darkroom. I visualize the end result during the shoot with post processing (the Photoshop darkroom) always at the front of my mind.
