db Communications (Dennis Bennett) provides professional photography for Home Decor and Industrial / Marketing / Advertising use, as well as Technical Communications for Manufacturing, Marketing, and Instructional purposes. Creating effective, eye-catching photographs for industry and advertising is as exciting as being in nature and capturing the fleeting moments of life and beauty. The really fun aspect of industrial/commercial photography is: there's always a new challenge. And, the challenges of the outdoor photography can be: being ready for that fleeting moment, or seeing the possibility of a great photo and then watching for the right time to capture your vision. Sometimes that can mean sitting and waiting for hours, or returning to the specific area many times over a period of months to get exactly what you want.
Much of my photography was done with an old-fashioned wood-field 4 x 5 view camera. Photography with a view camera is time consuming and deliberate, so there’s no such thing as just a quick snapshot. I entered the digital world of photography with much kicking and screaming because in the beginning, digital imaging wasn't nearly as good (clear) as film. However, industry, marketing, and advertising demanded the use of, and the immediate availability of the digital realm. Nowadays, I still enjoy using the 4x5 camera, but I can do so much more with today's digital equipment, including the computer where I process the images captured with modern digital cameras. Interestingly, the study of composition, contrast of light, and leading ones’ eye to a particular area of a photograph (which is critical in advertising photography) still apply as much as ever in creating effective and captivating photos – for whatever their purpose.
Colorado is "home" because it is such a spectacular place to live, and I've always enjoyed the companies I've worked for as much as I enjoy being in the mountains and plains of Colorado.
