The Old Fashion Way

I have published a few images that were created with “old school” image manipulation. My most popular is an old award winner called Row for Your Life. I studied the technique of Jerry Uelsmann and after a number of failures made these in my darkroom using the dodging and burning techniques perfected by Uelsmann. This one was printed during the same period and I scanned an old somewhat faded print to create the digital image. The pelican was shot in Lake Worth Florida, the beach is Cape Hatteras.

Row for Your Life!

Today, anybody with Photoshop can make this image. It was not so easy in 1976. I studied the technique of Jerry Uelsmann and after a number of failures made this in my Darkroom using the dodging and burning techniques perfected by Uelsmann. This won first place at the Indiana University Invitational New Artist Exhibition in 1976 and later hung in Carnegie Museum as part of an Associated Artists of Pittsburgh exhibition.
