The Assignment
To reach into the hidden world of wild animals in the nearby Catskill Mountains using a trail camera to photograph them remotely.

The Execution
"Assisted by local people with knowledge of Catskill's wildlife, I set up a trail camera at different locations to capture their images. The camera was automatically tripped when the animals came into range and their images were wirelessly transmitted back to my iPhone at low resolution using a specialized app. The camera itself stored higher resolution images on a memory card for later retrieval."

Post Production
"I use Photoshop and many, many apps on the iPad including Snapseed, PhotoCopier, and others. The final artistic step is the digital enhancement of the raw trail camera images and, in many cases, creating a reverse of the images to evoke all the emotion and wonder at the heart of the project. In the finished images the animals seem to live in a fairyland; an enchanted setting filled with light and spirit."

The Output
"After the computer editing is complete, my prints are output on Red River Polar Matte paper using an Epson 9900 inkjet printer and then attached to a wooden birch frame. The image is enhanced with charcoal and other artistic materials such as pastels and graphite. Hot encaustic medium (beeswax) is layered onto the surface and fused with a heat gun. More layers are added until the piece has its finished look. I use Red River paper because most other inkjet fine art papers will not accept hot wax properly. If an inkjet paper resists the wax, the final art piece will be unstable and flawed. Red River is the first paper I found that delivers consistent results."
