Jeff Watts, Brooklyn, New York Member Since October 2013 Artist Statement I am a New York based photographer who enjoys shooting the great images that the city and it's surrounding boroughs have to offer. From a photographic style perspective, I thoroughly enjoy post processing to enhance images that I have shot to create more dramatic and subtle effects. I view the photographic process as the first or foundational step in creating the ultimate image. This is similar to how some artists sketch out subjects on their canvas before they begin painting. The second step is utilizing basic photo tools such as Picasa or MS Digital Image to further enhance the image for effect. The final step, presentation, involves choosing the right matting and framing to compliment the overall image.
I look forward to exhibiting my photos wherever possible and enjoy actively exchanging ideas on photography with other artists. I am currently an active member of both the Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition [BWAC] and the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center [WAH] and show and sell my work at least 3 times a year at their galleries. I am also an active member of the Brooklyn Camera Club, the oldest continually active camera club in the United States. I have traveled extensively throughout the world and this has given me the opportunity to shoot a variety of historical subjects, cultures and landscapes. All in all, I still find the New York area to be the most interesting, vibrant and diverse location to photograph and create photo art imagery.
