Andrew Moore, Columbus, Ohio Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement I am a certified "geek" , technology hound, and accidental artist. I have a degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Management from Michigan State University and am currently working in Information Technology at a large, midwestern, power company. I did not really get into photography until 2004 when I took an extended vacation to New Zealand. Digital photography allowed me the freedom to make mistakes at low or no cost, and hence, to relax into the experience! As I collected a bunch of pictures that were less than perfect, but had some interesting color, I found that manipulating them with various software tools created an abstract image that I personally enjoyed. After showing them to various friends and relatives, I was encouraged to continue my pursuits. Please let me know how my interpretations affect you - good or bad!
