Artist’s Statement
Gerry Gantt has been taking Nature and Scenic Photographs since 1967. Camera equipment has been various Nikon® cameras and lenses. Since Digital SLR cameras became affordable, Gerry has used the Nikon D100 (2004), Nikon D2x (2005-2008) and currently a Nikon D3x digital camera with a 70-200 mm telephoto and 2x Tele-converter for Nature work and an 18-200 mm (D2x) zoom lens and currently a 24-120 lens with the D3x for Scenic work. His recent Scenic venue has been Thailand and that country’s beautiful Buddhist Wats. Films used in the past have been exclusively Kodak® slide films, including Kodachrome 25 and 64 and Ektachrome 100 as the Ektachrome emulsions were improved over the years.
Gerry's method for finding interesting Nature shots is to seek them out rather than waiting for them to come to him. Both methods have merit and each will produce great photographs, but prowling around works better for this photographer. He also prefers to picture animals doing something besides just sitting somewhere, if possible. Simple portraits are nice, but depicting an animal doing something characteristic of the species tells the viewer more than just what it looks like. Of course, Scenic photos, of necessity, require that the photographer go to them. Here, the most important factors in obtaining a good shot are time of day, sky conditions and time of year.
Gerry has been a member of the Northern Virginia Handcrafters Guild since 2003 and a board member of the organization since 2005. He is also a member of the League of Reston Artists, Reston Photographic Society, Herndon Council for the Arts, and American Craft Council. His photographs have been displayed for sale at local Arts and Crafts Shows in the Northern Virginia and suburban Maryland areas since 2001. All photos are shown in extensive galleries at GerryGanttPhotography.com where they may also be purchased.
Printing techniques in the past have utilized the Cibachrome® materials from Illford®. Currently, the photographer works exclusively in the digital medium in Adobe PhotoShop® with a Nikon ES-4000 slide/film scanner for scanning slides. Of course, the digital equipment now in use requires no intermediary for bringing images into PhotoShop®. Prints are generated using a Canon® ImagePrograf® iPF5000 Photo Printer which uses Canon’s Lucia® twelve-color pigment ink system to achieve sharp, archival quality giclee prints up to 16x20 inches in size. All prints are matted and framed using acid-free mats and adhesives.
