Curtis A Rhodes photography
I am a photographer...
I see things as shapes and forms, in colors and in shades of gray
I like seeing the possibility of a great photo
I like finding a great photo on an old negative I once thought of as a missed shot
I like the mechanics and beauty of the camera
I like film but
I like digital also
I like combining the old media with the new
I like the creativity of dodging and burning in Photoshop
I like holding a print and feeling it is exactly what I had imagined
I like human imagination
I like human interaction
The things I like to see...
Colors and tones
