David L. Kahn Fine Digital Photography
Home Links                
David Kahn is a digital fine art photographer based in Natick, Massachusetts. He starts with digital images captured from a scene using traditional photographic techniques. Then, using state-of-the-art computer technology, he processes these images to achieve his vision for each work. His goal is to remain true to the original scene, neither adding new elements nor removing ‘defects’. Instead, through the use of digital effects, David aims to bring his vision of the scene into focus for the viewer. Lighting and shadow, contrast and color, shape and texture all play a key role in the resulting images.

Gallery: Selected Photographs

Photographic Paintings (gallery)
There are some situations where the texture and color of a conventional art medium (watercolor, charcoal, etc.) is the most appropriate for conveying David’s artistic vision of a scene. Through careful application of digital darkroom techniques, the photographic paintings he creates highlight the essential character of the original image. The original photograph is frequently on display, along with the finished work, for examination and comparison.
Montages (gallery)
Frequently, a single image isn’t sufficient to say what needs to be said. In these situations, David creates a photographic montage … a group of related images. These images may vary in one or more dimensions (such as time), though there is always something that holds them together. His goal is to create a whole which is greater than the sum of its parts.
