Here’s the poster for my wife, Li Qin’s upcoming senior exhibition in photography opening at Ganton Art Gallery, Spring Arbor University, Sunday April 5. Her show will consist of 21 color photographs taken in China summer 2008.

The show demonstrates state of the art digitally processed museum quality color prints using Photoshop and other techniques to achieve a high quality color image. I remember back in the late 1980’s and 1990’s when I first developed the computer graphics lab at Spring Arbor University, I was dismayed by the level of quality possible in digital imaging and refused to buy a digital camera until the year 2000 as I went back to China to teach.

In the intervening years the possibilities of digital imaging increased to a level where this kind of highly saturated and balanced color photo image can be achieved in the computer lab instead of the darkroom.

Anyone interested in color photography should see this exhibition of photographs to see what can now be achieved. I’m very pleased and proud of the work Li Qin has done in developing the 21 prints in this exhibition. The photos are available for sale, sizes of work in the show range from 9” x 16” to 14” x 18”(print size).

The photos were shot using a Nikon D-80 camera with AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm 1:35-5.6 G ED lens.
