Being a Gemini and therefore of a polar nature, I need balance in my life.  I have a tenacious, hard-nosed practical side which I find useful for making a living, but there is also a creative side which must express itself.  Being a compulsive techie, I have used computers to channel these creative forces.  Thus, I have come to computer enhancement of digital photography as a medium of choice.  Whereas traditional photography seeks to capture the world as it is, I choose to use the computer to extend photography into the realm of painting by adding depth and textural enhancements to the image that evoke a more impressionist look and feel to the picture.
