manipulated photograph

I am drawn to forms of photography where the artist can creatively contribute to the final image through various forms of manipulation during the original exposure of the film.  I have been most fascinated with the use and manipulation of color. Color can help to create emotion in art, and the ability to manipulate color in photography is often limited, and therefore highly challenging. Several years ago, I learned light painting techniques that I found very exciting. Since then I have developed the basic techniques of light painting into an impressionistic style using various modified light sources.
