I’ve gotten a lot of inquires this month about what brand camera, gear or software I use. As for camera gear I’m brand agnostic. I like many brands for different purposes and all sorts of different camera systems as well. Some very old by today standards, and for good reason since I like to modify my gear physically or electronically so I can find a look that I’m after.
The one tool I use the least is Photoshop in my photographic work. I pretty much use Photoshop for either fixing an error that could be a defect from a film scan or a sensor issue. I also use levels to balance out the image since I shoot with a semi flat curve. I hardly need to crop since I make a strong effort on capturing the composition and lighting that’s on location. I hope that answers some of the inquires. – MIKOS
Every advancement in each layer of my work are the slow building blocks, then standing back and observing, then more advancement. Eventually the painting comes through and reveals itself outside of the process and takes on a life of its own. -MIKOS
