About Ian Barber PhotographyA small insight into who I am and what I do
My photography journey started many years ago during a trip to the Grand Canyon in the USA. Seeing this grand vista made me realise that I wanted to be able to capture moments in time through capturing a still photograph.
I currently use both digital and analog film to make the initial exposure and the majority of my post processing is performed with Adobe Photoshop which I have been using on a daily basis for over 15 years.
Why Black and White?
We see and live in a world of colour. That’s how we’ve evolved, and it’s the world that we know. Naturally, people seem to gravitate to colour photography. I think black and white is timeless, but more than that, it transcends reality and transforms an image into a realm that isn’t abstraction, but isn’t reality either.
I live in Doncaster South Yorkshire England. My Photographs represent my personal vision.
I use a Mac computer installed with Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom and Wacom tablet for my editing.
I use a fully calibrated workflow to print all my photographs on an Epson R3880 Large Format Printer.
I use the camera to express my vision through capturing a moment in time.
A Digital Print Maker
The print to me represents the final process of the photographic journey.
