Profotos Staff Evaluation:
The mysterious and dream-like
mood found in Jeff Alu's photography portfolio is unlike any
other, which we have reviewed here at Profotos. Strong graphic
lines, along with incredible texture and stark contrast are three
of the most common elements found within Jeff's images.
Our staff was stunned to learn of the technique Jeff uses
to create his beautiful images. Using a Kodak DC-280 digital
camera, Jeff shoots all of his images in color and then converts
them into black and white in Photoshop. All of his image manipulation
is accomplished within the virtual darkroom of Photoshop. Jeff's
masterful understanding of this program goes a long way in assisting
him to produce some of the most striking fine art, black and
white images our staff has ever reviewed on Profotos.
Several of the images within Jeff's portfolio are strikingly
similar to those found within some of the all-time great photographer's
portfolios. His incredible use of contrast, lighting and texture
give his images a very strong feeling of three dimensionality.
The three dimensional aspect of Jeff's images is a strong element,
which adds to the overall quality of several of his images.
Our staff enjoyed every moment we had, while reviewing the
work in this talented artist's portfolio. We invite you to browse
through Jeff's portfolio and immerse yourself within his surreal
world of digital imaging. Keep in mind that all of the images
within Jeff's portfolio are digital, from the moment they are
captured, to the final result after much burning and dodging.
Wow! This digital portfolio rivals those of many traditional
