David H Frankel's Profile
I have enjoyed the visual arts since my childhood. Drawing and painting were among my favorite pastimes. When I started using a camera artistically in my teens (1960s) my favorite subjects were nature landscapes. As an adult I have enjoyed traveling and photographing the rugged scenery of many of our national parks.
For most of my life, I used film cameras. I switched to digital in 1998, and appreciated the immediate feedback it provided. At first, I used photo editing software, primarily for cropping. In 2012, I began using Photoshop Elements to enhance colors and make major adjustments. As I gained skill, I experimented with transforming photos into abstract art. I love to play with color and textures, adjusting light and form. Landscape is still a major influence, even in my abstracts.
In addition to photography, I enjoy pottery. See my pottery etsy shop:…
