John Reuter, Principle, 20×24 Holdings LLC and head of 20×24 Studio, Master Photoshop Instructor, and Artist joins host Scott Sheppard for an in-depth look at his background and experience with Photoshop and hybrid workflows in digital art. John’s journey in photography began in early college where one of his professors introduced him to the fine art aspect of solarization and reticulation including studio photography. He then began working for Polaroid as a Research Photographer which allowed him to work closely with their development team and field test a variety of their film formats.

While at Polaroid, John was able to work with their large format 20 x 24 camera, which literally captures Polaroid images 20" wide by 24" tall and soon learned to incorporate this medium into his art. John eventually became the studio manager for Polaroid’s 20×24 Studio and became involved in digital imaging since it’s inception working with film scanners, Photoshop, film recorders thereby starting his digital hybrid workflow experience. Digital image capture and scanning became an intregal part of his creative expression as did digital image transfers. John even experimented with digital prints using the early Iris and Epson inkjet printers onto watercolor paper.

Since 1995, John, teaches art-focused Photoshop classes, featuring digital collages and Polaroid scanning techniques. A series using Holga cameras and Polaroid, and created a podcast series last year, "Creative Photoshop Techniques with John Reuter" featuring tips and tutorials on using Photoshop for fine art.

After Polaroid stopped making their instant film, John formed 20×24 Holdings LLC and now manages the NYC based studio with Jennifer Trausch and continues to capture incredible 20×24 art images for talents that include William Wegman, David Leventhal, Mary Ellen Maher, and many others. The camera and studio are available for rent and offer a great experience for any art enthusiast.

The McNamara Report on Inside Digital Photo with Michael J. McNamara
This week’s topic: Are we giving up our right to take scenic photographs?

The tragedy of 911 brings back haunting images of an unforgivable attack on innocent people, especially for those who lost loved ones and neighbors. In its aftermath, we all agreed that security had to be tightened to prevent such an act from reoccurring. But have we gone too far by adding laws that actually prevent nature and scenic photographers from taking pictures of lakes, bridges, dams, and other scenes that inspired previous generations of painters and photographers?

In this segment, Mike has some stories to tell about his latest encounters with growing photo restrictions in his rural home town area north of New York City.
