Cultivate artistic talent through a new challenging way of working - the documentary. This series is a departure technically and creatively. Before this, my photos were staged in pre-constructed scenes. With this new series, I was forced to work spontaneously in difficult environments. I've not only mastered a new way of photography but also this has opened up a whole new way of looking at art with an understanding of historical and community value. 2: 2013 I purchased an EOS Mark II 5D which has higher resolution RAW files and a faster shutter. This enables me to work faster and especially in the field doing the sustainable farming documentary work. Also it allows me to use the lenses I have without any cropping on the edges because there is a full sensor in this camera. The software in the camera is also compatible with the newer photo editing software. The RAW files can be adjusted in a very refined manner and efficiently in Photoshop CS6 and Bridge. This software and camera have allowed me to photograph better looking images, shoot in situations that I was not able to squeeze into before, and have larger files with better resolution. I also had training in Photoshop CS6. This has increased my knowledge base and enabled me to work more efficiently with image files. As a result of this equipment, software and training, I am a more solid professional photographer and create imagery in ways I could not before.
