Change is good….


Ah, the digital age.

When digital imaging was first introduced, the color wasn’t exactly great.  Actually, it seemed improbable that digital images could ever measure up to traditional printing methods.   I can’t tell you how many times Mark rejected work from the lab because the people looked grey.  As in dead.

But, boy, things have changed.

Those of us who’ve been doing this for a long time have been stretched, we’ve complained, and (finally!) we discovered something new about ourselves as artists.

Change is good.

Here are some images from a session we did with Andrew and Frances Bransby and their family.  Both Mark and I love the dramatic role that design and color play in the top one, which Andrew and Frances ordered as a 48” image.

I also love that Mark understands classic portraiture and lighting, and that we’ve been doing this long enough to know that they really art pieces our clients love for decades.   So, we have come to love both the happy innovation of the seemingly impromptu portrait, and yet we also know that classic portraiture will endure all the passing trends.

What an incredible time we live in, don’t you think?.

  1. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Many thanks
