Los Angeles in Vivid Colors

Los Angeles in Vivid Colors

Los Angeles is a wonderful city to live in as a photographer.
I was determined to get to know my adopted city a lot better, so I took some time off from my freelance work as a book designer and typesetter, and set out every morning to a different part of the city, camera in hand.
I began to experiment with altering and enhancing the colors in my photographs. The result is this series of color enhanced photographs of landmark buildings and sites in Los Angeles.
These are some of my favorite photographs, and hope that you enjoy looking at photographs nearly as much as I did working on them.

Color Enhanced Hummingbird Photographs, 2017

Color Enhanced Hummingbird Photographs, 2017

These hummingbird photographs are the result of a lot of patience and my slowly learning to “think like a hummingbird.”

When I began the series I was thrilled (and frustrated) at getting one usable hummingbird photograph per day. It took a while for me to figure out the birds’ tolerance for my presence and how to get close without startling.

Vivid Color Meets Black and White

Vivid Color Meets Black and White

I thought it might be interesting to see some of my new abstract collages in black and white next to the real color versions. Some of them look like x-rays to me. Hope you enjoy! I always appreciate your comments.
