The Digital Art of Gary Austin
“Painting with Pixels” Photographs of spirit.
As technology expands, a mindset towards digital imagery needs expansion as well. The camera is now a sketchbook where ideas are collected and brought together in software, instead of the traditional artist’s studio. This is an evolution of art and is just as important as traditional studio work.
“Manipulating the image in a sophisticated computer editing program is yet another combination of skill, experimentation and intuition. Some photographers believe that the original image, uncorrupted by editing, is the purist form of art. Okay, but so what, in some ways, I learn more about the subject and myself by unlimited editing until the image meets my internal sense of finish.” – Gary Austin
