This is Alexander Kariotis... Lead tenor and creator of the Rock Opera Orchestra. The house behind him once belonged to Thomas Edison, inventor of the light bulb and pioneer in motion picture and audio recording technology. Alex will be featured in an open house at the Edison mansion and was selected to make a wax cylinder recording on an almost century old Edison recording device.

Alex wanted a picture to use on a publicity postcard to advertise the event. He obtained permission to shoot on the grounds of the mansion for free. (something that almost never happens) The problem was we were given one time slot on one of the grayest days I have ever seen here in New Jersey. We were escorted on the property by an armed park ranger and did the shoot in mist and sometimes drizzle. When we were done there was not much that looked too promising. I had to get creative to come up with something that Alex liked. In the end, he wanted something that looked like an old hand tinted photo. Be sure to see V2 for the before shot.

I am working on several projects right now so I'm sorry if I have to click and run for a day or two.

Yes Ty you did this so well, and your time slot...means you are a great photographer, we all know that already...nice shooting for the star singer, you did him proud there, I like the look of the house and the amazing chimney stacks, have them smaller than those in Blackpool on older houses, so will shoot a few soon, hope that his publicity people use your shot.

Thats some pretty impressive work Ty, I like this a lot version two seems fairly run of the mill and you have turned it into a work of art, only goes to show you can often salvage something out of what seems a fairly basic shot. Nice one.

This is "Class" work ty. Can imagine having this for publicity. The house is amazing but doesn't overpower the musician due to your excellent manipulation skills. Great tonality and a very professional looking finished image.

I, like you get too busy to read and write all this stuff, but I've come back to this one a few times and given your circumstances with the weather, most of us feint-hearted souls would have put our heads in our hands and wailed... instead you managed to come up with an amazing portrait of Alex. I bet he's really pleased with this. I love that understated/muted background that has even more impact because of those creative eyes of yours... Mega impressed Ty. helen x

Your change in toning has done a good job of focusing attention on Alex, which was not the case with the bright colours in the background of the original. Good luck with sales of your mass production of this!
