My name is Chris Lord and I am the Head Pixie and Pixel Pusher at Pixielated Pixels.
Welcome to my eclectic gallery. I am
British born and bred but New York City based and creating digitally
enhanced photographic images is my favorite thing to do. Photography has
been an obsession since I was thirteen years old and went off to Italy
clutching my mother's accordion style 1940s roll film camera. I had a
darkroom years ago but pouring evil chemicals in and out of containers
and waiting for that timer to buzz was not my idea of fun. Now we have
computers. In 1985 I first digitized images into an Amiga 1000 computer
using a black and white CCTV camera making exposures through the green,
red & blue cells of a color wheel. At last, with today's software
and hardware I feel that I can create the image that I saw in my mind's
eye. Lately I have begun to revive old film scans by adding textures and
modern techniques to update them. Some of these are f
atured here. Two
years ago I decided that I needed the versatility of a really good SLR
again and bought a Canon 5D and now I'm using a 5D Mark II with
occasional use of my Canon Powershot G10. Most of the magic happens, of
course, in Adobe's fabulous Photoshop program. I spend many late nights
with my butt parked in front of it's wondrous arcane interface! I hope
that you enjoy the results.
