Portrait: Carlton Ward I love capturing light in a box. A former film shooter I have converted to digital and enjoy using Photoshop, Corel Painter w/Wacom tablet, PhotoMatix for HDR imaging and other fun software programs to edit & enhance my images.
Though the box is digital, my passion continues to grow along with my desire to participate in the symbiotic relationships we all share on this beautiful blue spinning ball. I grew up in Texas but my heart belongs to the Pacific Northwest now. Camping, friends, music festivals, travel and the backyard provide many opportunities to explore the beauty around us. Living in Oregon & Washington provides easy access to so many beautiful landscapes, mountains and forests to explore. Through my photography, I am able to record some of these blessed moments to share with you.
