JILL S. FLYER
I studied B&W photography for many years, experimenting with advanced printing techniques in a traditional dark room & was successful in exhibiting in galleries in the U.S. & Mexico. I moved to Mexico in 2003, making a long time avocation into a profession. I switched to digital in 2007 & find it challenging, with all the myriad manipulations possible. But, I believe that lessons learned in making B & W images (form & structure & intensity of tones) can also produce better color photos.
Below, are my most notable accomplishments and exhibits.
