Ray Maines - DFW Local Photographer - Prints & Canvases
A photographer with a BS degree in Illustrative Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology who studied with fine art instructors such as Minor White, Ralph Hattersley and Charles Arnold.
Ray's current work is digital format in both black and white and color. While most of his work is digital, many film negatives have also been scanned so that they might be printed.
Images are found where ever travel takes Ray. His eye tends to see images which are abstract or which can be abstracted through the digital process. Fragments and details of objects and areas also attract his attention. Ray is very aware of light and tries to utilize it to best enhance the effect on the final image.
All of the finished work is produced in a digital darkroom. The usual photographic techniques are applied digitally. In addition, some of the images are further manipulated in Photoshop and other software using techniques only available in the digital format.
