Keith Skelton, Los Angeles Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement I am a Los Angeles based photographer that has worked professionally for 30 years. Corporate photography has been my speciality though I also shoot fine art, documentary, and advertising subjects. No subject is out of bounds for me though I naturally prefer to shoot people, landscapes, floral subjects, and cities.
Most of my floral subjects are created using a high resolution scanner which I refer to as scanography. This creates images with extreme details but with focus of only about one half inch. I am experimenting with other subjects such as insects, shells and birds.
