Jim McKinniss is a fine art photographer based in Los Angeles. Before taking up photography, Jim was a mathematician who taught at the University of California and University of Hawaii. He’s been able to leverage his background in software design and computer programming when working with the nuances of photoshop.
In this interview Jim discusses his projects such as fine art portraiture, including his adventures in Venice, Italy. Revelers travel to Venice each year to participate in a masquerade festival before the Lenten season. Jim discusses the process he uses to apply as many as 10 to 12 textures to his work, as well as the application of monochrome to emulate 19th century photography.
