David Emerson / Pamela Marshall
Imp / Yellowstone & Grand Canyon
David enjoyed photography most of his life, but when professional quality digital photography finally became affordable around 2003, his interest in photography as an art form matured rapidly. He immersed himself in the technical details of both Photoshop and digital printmaking. My artistic vision is to combine my instincts for photographic composition with the digital techniques required to convey a personal impression of some aspect of the world that resonates with him emotionally.
Pamela Marshall has long been interested in photography, starting with a Brownie camera and a Girl Scout photography badge. She took her fatherís old Argus half-frame camera on a trip to Scotland in the 1970ís , getting 72 slides per roll. When the time cam to move to digital cameras, she welcomed the flexibility and possibilities of Photoship, with its ability to fine-tune exposures and framing. She also uses the computer for stitching together multiple photos into panoramas. She loves landscape photography, as well as close ups of rocks and walls.
David was originally educated as a microbiologist , but has worked as a software engineer for many years, currently at Constant Contact in Waltham. He has been a photographer for most of his life and has studied art at DeCordova Museum School. His work has exhibited previously in Lexingtonís Cary Library in 2006 and 2008, as well as 51 Walden in Concord, the Unitarian churches in Lexington and Concord, and at the RE/MAX Landmark office at 51 Depot Square, Lexington. He has also exhibited at the Topsfield Fair and won first prize in 2007 and best in show in 2009 in the professional Photographer category.
Pamela is a composer of classical chamber and orchestral music and her music has been performed in many concerts in Lexington and around the united States. She plays hone in the Concord Orchestra and teaches improvisation workshops. You can see and hear her music on the web at Sprindrift Music Company (www.spindrift.com).
