Digital Pop Art

It’s fun sometimes to make the colors really pop, as in this pair of images. The bottom floral, of Gerberas and Crysanthemums, was photographed on a light box. I then inverted the image in LAB to arrive at the upper version, Gerberas and Crysanthemums Inversion. This kind of work is probably better seen and evaluated as digital Pop Art than as photography.

Do you prefer more traditional looking work? Check out (for example) these iconic images of mine, or my Kumano Kodo portfolio. Digital photography as a medium is truly a big tent than enables many stylistic possibilities and artistic proclivities. It’s for this reason that I like to say I am a digital artist using photographs as my source material. This is a more complex and more accurate description than the anachronistic label “photographer.”
