Mike Amodeo Art Show

Sept. 15-October 25

I am an award winning self-taught nature photographerwith over 10 years experience in the field. My file incluces Birds, Mammals, Flowers and Landscapes from Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. After spending 20 years in the information technology field, I am using my knowledge of computer technology to produce fine images from film and digital cameras. I have developed an extensive knowledge of Color Management technology enabiling me to produce fine art images. I control the complete process from capturing the image to producing the print. The end result is my vision that began with the click of the camera shutter.

Color has such an incredible effect on human beings. Bright colors in images can be so uplifiting and can elevate your mood by just dazing off into them. The vibrant colors found in nature are such an intoxicating sensation to witness. It' the colors, the contrast and how light is playing on the scene and what draws me in and inspires me to capture an image in nature.

My equipment includes professional SLR camera bodies including the Canon EOS3 film body. the EOS 20D digital body with an assortment of Canon lenses. My favorite films are Fuji Velvia and Provia 100 F, both for there rich color palette and fine grain though the majority of my shooting today is digital capture.
