Finally Fish....

With the arrival of summer here on the North Carolina coast, and after repeated requests, I have turned my eye to a prevalent local subject: Fish. It really is amazing how many fish there are in the species, and it is great fun trying to capture the essence of as many different ones as I can. The plan is to make 40+ images of fish, and it will take a while, but these images have been very popular so far in our brick and mortar shop, the Golden Gallery, so that is at least some incentive to continue with the series.

This series uses a technique I developed over the years involving a dirty scanner and some windex. I can reveal no more, or I risk giving away trade secrets. Suffice to say, it is a lot of fun to use this technique, and I have been very happy with the results.

Hi John,
I like your fish images a lot.
It seems Windex is really used for lot of applications in the US:)I thought this was only a joke in a film.
