Folk Art for the Digital Age

It is my view that there are similarities between this photography and folk art. I have no training as a photographer and tend to view taking images more an intuitive excercise than a technical one, despite the sophistication of equipment used. Folk Art, in part, is defined by the lack of sophistication or formal training of the artist and in the use of materials easily available, if you will, culturally, 'in reach' of the artist. In my case photographs are adapted using image editing tools readily avaiable for free over the internet. In this way one looks for available 'tools' that work to give the outcome desired, and knows what is desired when one sees it.

Below is an example of the process used to get the effect I desire, in some ways finding out when I get there...
Although I enjoy black and white images, I also wish to 'interpret' photographs using available tools to add texture, color, oversaturation, or distortion to cummulatively produce an adapted image that represents my intuitive feel for the artist or subject.
