Description Location: Brighton, Massachusetts, Winter end 2009. This is actually my neighbor's house which has some interesting custom work done to the siding. Would these birds be considered 'pets' since they are living inside the house?
My name is Ryan Gilbertie and I am new to Imagekind but not to photography. However, due to some 'fiscal restrictions' have been utilizing cutting-edge equipment circa 2001 and have historically relied on various photo-editing techniques to bring many of my photos up to their maximum potential. At the same time, some are not edited at all. I also do not own or have any intention on utilizing Photoshop, which I only mention to keep the integrity of my original images intact.
My favorite subjects are landscapes, especially forests, in all seasons with one exception: the beach. I would much rather be snowed in cradling a Dunkachino than be counting down the minutes on a beach blanket staring through glazed eyes at short shorts and warm Coronas; to the disdain of most of my female friends...
I love taking shots of my favorite band, Phish, in concert and doing some transformative editing to them but because I am a legal novice I will be keeping those private for the time being. It truly pains me to do so but I'm working on it. Those really are my favorites and I think most unique and creative pieces.
I'm always open to speaking with other photographers about techniques, ideas, or just to chat so feel free to say hello!
