The digital photographs in my gallery have been processed in digital imaging Adobe Photoshop software. The functionality of the softwares filter effects and artistic options lends itself to developing a stronger interpretative style on the subject matter as well as offering greater artistic flexibility. The most effective way of doing this is to translate the stronger characteristics and associations of the raw unprocessed imagery to the feeling and mood of the events photographed. Using Photoshop's filter effects gives one the greater latitude to explore numerous interpretative avenues, to give images a different meaning or stronger message/impact. The images come alive in a different way !
The photographs in this album have an impressionistic art form style with a modern slant to it.
