San Gimignano landscape, November Italian workshop

For me photography is a lifelong learning process. I am constantly learning how to use new and old Photoshop tools and software plugins.  They were created to make our images more lifelike. For me the purpose of these tools is to create an image that makes you feel like you are looking through a window onto a landscape.

Last weekend I participated in the Rochester Village Fine Art Fair and I had a request for special cropping of a few images from Italy. Often when I go back to the images, I rework them with the new techniques I have learned and new software that I have available to me.

This is one of the images I cropped and reworked to show the client. It was originally captured on a 6×7 negative in San Gimignano, Tuscany at the hotel where this year’s workshop group will be staying. It is a wonderful location just a short walk from the town center.

About europeanimages

Light is both the photographer's palette and brush. Harnessing available light is a skill learned through the study of technical theory and then applying it in the field. My goal as a photographer is to search out the images that interest me artistically, then once I have found the essence of that place I use composition and light to enhance the images.
