Artist in Residence
I have been an artist in residence in the Mojave National Preserve and take images primarily near my home in Joshua Tree. This page consists of images recently displayed at the La Quinta Art Under the Umbrella events, held eight times a year in La Quinta. This is one of the finest street art fairs in the Coachella Valley. On other pages you will find images of abandoned homes in the high desert, of doors, and images of volcanos, rock formations formed from lava and blow holes, and airdropped sand dunes, formed as clouds of dusts traveled hundreds of miles and deposited their debris across the desert. Kelso Dunes is one such spot, miles of pristine sand molded by wind and rain over centuries.formational Blogs
What you will find in the blog
You also will find instructions on how to create a luminance mask, which I learned from Bob Killen, and color correction techniques as taught by Dan Margulis, the expert in color correction and the use of the LAB color space, as well a method to sharpen images. And you will see a growing number of images taken with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1, one of the finest current digital cameras. Others are taken with a Leica, Hasselblad, and Canon cameras, primarily the 5D Mark II.
I give lessons out of my home, teaching students composition, and how to make quality pictures using their own camera. These are private lessons for one or two students. Contact me at email@example.com or call 760-401-2166 (cell) for a reservation.
Contact me if you have questions, want to schedule some training or are interested in an image. Thanks for visiting.
