As you all know, Chris is the vice-president of the Niagara Falls Camera Club. They club recently held their awards banquet, and Chris came away with the McGarry Photo Award for slide of the year. A local newspaper covered the evening, and quote Chris:
“While the debate about the artistic integrity of photographs taken using traditional film versus digital cameras continues unabated, it seems that the digital enthusiasts continue to gain ground,” said Chris Empey, president of the local camera club that has members from across the region as well as New York State.
“Many of them argue that manipulation of images using computer tools and software is the modern technological equivalent of darkroom processing techniques. The darkroom has been an artistic resource used by traditional film photographers for decades.”
Congratulations Chris! Hopefully all of the readers/subscribers appreciate getting these weekly tips from our awarding-winning contributor.
