About the Author

Gary grew up in the rural Midwest, where he acquired a love of nature and photography. After completing a doctorate in chemistry, he began in the Research department of a company making photographic films and papers, and has developed several non-silver imaging products for use in electronics and color management. His lifelong passion for macro photography and darkroom techniques such as solarization, translated to digital manipulation when he moved to full-frame digital a few years ago. Gary has been active in NatureScapes' macro and digital art forums, and also has an interest in art and painting.
