Special Effects - Before Photoshop

Now in my 70's, I am retired as a commercial photographer but I continue to offer my popular lecture "Doing it the Hard Way" to colleges, camera clubs and other interested groups. This presentation covers the very complex techniques required to produce special effects in photography before the advent of computers and PhotoShop. Click "Lecture" above for more information.

All of the images on this page were created "In Camera" without any retouching or computer manipulation whatsoever.
For more information on the methods click "Back Room" above.


Covid 19 - I am now successfully conducting these talks over Zoom and Go To Meeting.
