Water Color Photography and Digital Art

My name is Robert Andrews and I am a Nature, Landscape and Digital Artist. I guess as long as I can remember I have owned a camera and think my first was a Kodak Brownie 127 I think sometime in the late 1950’s. I took this little camera with me everywhere I went and saved my allowance money so I could develop my film then the next chapter begins.
My next door neighbor was a part time studio photographer with a darkroom upstairs so now the fun begins. Days after school and Saturday afternoon were spent in the darkroom learning the art of developing film and in those days we did only B/W and you hand painted your finished product. After a few years my father fixed me a small darkroom so I could play anytime I wanted to. After a short stint as a Photojournalist at a local newspaper the U.S. government had another job for me called being a solder. Now comes my 1st real camera a Pentax SLR and the manual was in German so my training had to kick back in.
The next 40 years photography took a back burner to the job of making a living and raising a family and of course a camera was involved now a Canon Rebel until we advanced into the Digital age. My first was a Fuji Point and Shoot maybe with 2 or 3 pixels, which I used on my fall trip to The Rocky Mountain National Park to see the Aspens in full golden glow, now the love returns so had to upgrade to Nikon DLSR.
After medical retirement in 2006 I returned to my love of the darkroom but now on a computer and Photoshop and all the wonderful other digital art programs. I enjoy the photography part but my real passion has always been the creative aspect of the process. The last few years I have found myself moving more into the more artistic aspect in this process sometimes called Artistry Beyond the Camera!!!
