This is more than digitally enhanced photography, it is
original artwork by Gay Waldman. She is recognized for her
unique mixed media photo-art images. Her artistic approach
evolves from her carefully composed and original
After twenty years of darkroom work, the enlargers have been
retired and she now intuitively enhances all images
digitally. Gay uses a wide variety of tools within Adobe
Photoshop CS6, Corel Painter XII, and Nik Software. She
occasionally pushes her designs further by enhancing
directly on the print, resulting in a mixed media art form.
Equipment and materials used include: a Canon 5D-Mark II,
17-40mm, 24-105mm, 70-300mm Canon L lenses, Dell
workstation, Wacom Cintiq drawing tablet-monitor, Sanford
Prismacolor pencils, pastels, acrylic paint and Marshall
photo-oils. Large digital images are archived and printed at
a professional color lab using Kodak traditional color
processing. Small images and cards are printed using an
Epson R2000, on papers rated with a 25-100 year life span.
Dye-infused aluminum prints are a new addition in her
portfolio.Gay has been a
professional picture framer since 1986. With her knowledge
of the retail products available, her designs for
presentation are a perfect fit for each image. Unique
framing is available on all her artwork and yours too!
