What do outdoor photographers do when they can’t get out in the field to pursuit their passion? They can revisit, reinterpret, and reimagine some of their existing images, that’s what. And that’s exactly what I did with some of my Chaco Canyon photographs from the 2012 expedition. I did it not to replace the original images but simply to take a different approach to convey the awe and mystery of the canyon itself and the ruins. And as I write this now I realize that one of the reasons was that it was a way to visit the canyon again, and to come away, almost, with new images.
Of course all this is made possible by the magic of some very powerful editing software, in this case Lightroom 4, Paintshop Pro X8, & On One Perfect Black and White.
It wasn’t easy choosing images for this project. Some just did not lend themselves to the look I was after. And most simply looked best in their original edited state.
The images here are all Limited Editions of 5 each and are optimized for a single size of 12×18, making them the most affordable editions anywhere and come with a Certificate of Authenticity, signed and with a serial number.
