R J Whetstone, Denver Member Since April 2009 Artist Statement Former musician, real estate broker, and currently a technology trainer and winemaker, turned photography avocation into new venture with gallery collections from diverse and eclectic sources across the USA.
Digital technology presents multiple of additional challenges, yet provides an expanding potential for creating images, exploring new ideas and flexing creativity.
Converting from film to digital four to five years ago, I have became engrossed with the new digital technology. While traveling the US as a manager and trainer of field reps for a major photo printer manufacturer, I began developing my knowledge base for digital imaging. Mastering photo printing was eclipsed by the amount of time spent learning the various computer software packages as well as learning the mechanics and technology of a digital camera. The majority of the photos are now shot with a Canon EOS DSLR, utilizing a Canon lens EF-S 17-85mm,70-200 EF f2.8 L, and a Canon EF 28-135mm..
The process is always exciting and inspiring. The quality of images I see from many photographers have spawned a greater appreciation for the world around me and caused me to re-evaluate and subsequently appreciate the bountiful world of images.
These photographs represent a small portion of a continuing journey to explore and observe - capturing diverse subjects and images. It is my hope that you find some of the images enjoyable, entertaining and/or thought provoking...
