The photographic process for me ranges from in-camera techniques to digital enhancements to the final online display or print. Whether its close-ups, nature, travel or abstract images, I enjoy the full creative cycle. Sometimes I have an idea in mind of what the final image will look like, other times I just let the final piece evolve.

It's a lot of fun displaying my photos and artwork on the web. I frequently post images to this site, Flickr.com and to other online photo forums. But a big part of my creative process doesn't end with the digital image. I enjoy the additional thrill of printing on a variety media, and finishing things off with great framing. I've been fortunate to have several of my images selected for display in a variety of locations. It's a real privilege to know that the photos are being enjoyed on a daily basis Here are some of the places where my images have been installed by some very astute art aficionados.• Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Soldier Family Assistance Center• Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Patient Wing (The request for images to be hung in this wing for wounded soldiers was for photos that would "remind our soldiers of home" since patriotic and military type photos are all over the hospital. The staff said the upbeat and fun subjects would give the soldiers a break from the usual patriotic and military type photos.• Gartner, Arlington, VA (Private Offices)• Bohrer Park in Gaithersburg, MD• Washington School of Photography• Sandy Spring, MD Museum• Kentlands Mansion in Gaithersburg, MDOwn Your Own JB Haber ArtIf you are interested in one of my photos, please contact me at email@example.com. The photos are available in a number of sizes to fit almost any space. I print photos up to 13"x19" in house using the pigment on paper process adopted by many of the world's top fine art photographers. I use use archival quality materials that rival or exceed the longevity of those made using traditional chemicals and papers. I work with reputable printers to produce images larger than what I can handle in house.
These images were created using a variety of in-camera and post processing techniques.
Some of these butterflies were spied in my backyard, but most of them were taken at the annual "Wings of Fancy" butterfly exhibit at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, MD.
I call these images "Circle Art" ... for obvious reasons. I begin with my original photos, whether taken on my full size camera or on the iPhone. Then the images are transformed using a few creative apps on the iPhone.
This gallery shows off the wide range of possibilities I have to enhance my images by creating "painterly" effects of some of my favorite photos. Before commencing with the digital painting, I'll often assemble pieces of several of my photos to create a brand new composition, just as traditional painter might do.
Some of my photos are painstakingly created using a studio setup, while others were grabbed while walking along a busy thoroughfare on vacation. Can you tell the difference?
