japanese water garden redux


japanese water garden redux, originally uploaded by Bob Jones.

today i decided that i am no longer a photographer. i am an artist.

that really just means that i've decided not to feel bad about using photoshop a bit more than to just add a bit of contrast. i still don't like really merged images (although adding a full moon here and there doesn't hurt) but i won't be afraid to over saturate, bring up shadows and down highlights, or add a layer or two of interest.

(sorry about the photoshop shop-talk).

i think i might start selling prints too. who wants a boring standard landscape? why not have some art?

as getting a full time teaching job seems more and more elusive - a career selling pictures that i love to take becomes a much more interesting alternative!
