The idea came to my head and the picture moved into the viewfinder. That is what it is like when you watch some of the movies, but that is what happens when I photograph for my projects. There is the technical parts you need to know, but then there is the interpretation of what is going to happen and letting it develop into the scene.
I feel accomplished photographing architecture, portrait, advertising and product photography. Working the scene with sketches or story boards from the client is fulfilling and then there are times the scene needs to be found through interpretation.
The scene can take time and through the knowledge the results are achieved in a good production.
My work in graphic design, illustration and printing for advertising has kept me involved in specifications for production and quality. I use Photoshop as my darkroom for white balance, color correction and managing RGB to CMYK specifications. Many other programs are used to produce PDF, slides, DVD and movie productions.
My primary camera system is the Canon EOS digital, with macro, wide angle and telephoto lenses. Lighting is set up for studio and on location productions. Macintosh computers manage the programs and data filing for delivering and producing on the internet.
The “Design and Photography” course at the Ontario College of Art expanded my experiences from working in newspapers and store window displays. Before I setup ron&ron photography, I worked for architects, industrial designers, interior designers and book publishers.
In my work vision, I do not categorize the scene. I could be at the stadium and I photograph a soccer player, then turn around and shoot a portrait of someone as well as a person eating at a meal. I call it compositions, but then we could say they are sports, portrait and food shots.
Geographically, I photograph in Windsor and Toronto, Ontario, Canada and some professional time in Chicago, Illinois and Detroit Michigan USA.
