I shoot using an LG Voyager cell phone, creating 1600×1200 jpg’s, which I edit in Photoshop. While shooting, my objective is to see the object in a new way. The cell phone camera facilitates this in being easy to place in locations not available to most cameras.
As the cell phone image is not particularly rich to start with, I create multiple layers of the same image to bring out the highlights and darks, as well as to reinforce the mid-tones, color saturation and the structure of the subject. I use a variety of filters on various layers to create a more painterly effect. I’m a huge fan of impressionist work, and I love bringing out the colors that make up what we see. I am constantly experimenting with different cameras and approaches to editing the image.
