Welcome to Marty Levine Photography where I post both my best "walking around shots" as well as portraiture for which I have been commissioned. Enjoy the site, buy what you like and certainly feel free to provide comments and criticisms !
About my photography One of the best things about being "the photo guy" amongt friends and colleagues is of course that very few pictures of me exist ! If you have spent any time with me you know that my eyes are constantly on the move, framing shots, even when I don't have a camera. It is the hope of that one great shot that keeps me coming back for more.
For those who don't know me well, middle aged Christian by grace, husband of a great gal from Texas, raised by great parents who have been married for over 60 years, father of three teenagers, Georgia Tech engineer by training, longtime employee of a colossal corporation, gun toting, witty fellow who can fix just about anything except other people who has been snapping pics since his high school years and has now decided he needs to sell a few !
I utilize several digital cameras and some unique equipment including a camera that allows image capture in infrared light, some very long lenses as well as telescopes for the space shots. I have also engineered some devices that help with capturing moving images such as birds in flight. Like most modern photographers I post process with programs such as Adobe Photoshop to improve the quality of the images.
I have organized the site into collections by subject matter. To see the galleries go to "All Photographs" at the bottom of this web page. You can either browse each photo individual or use slideshow function. My favorite photos are in the gallery "Top Shots".
Purchasing Prints The printing provided by Zenfolio / MPix is outstanding. I have edited every image to best insure that what you see on the screen is what gets printed. You can even have the pictures mounted in frames. Zenfolio also offers printing on cups, calendars etc so if you are interested in these let me know.
The process to purchase prints is straightforward - select photos and pay with credit card or PayPal(tm) like you would any website. The transaction is handled securely by Zenfolio, so I have no access to your card information, etc.
A few tips on selecting print size & paper - When you inspect your photo selections you will be given some options on printing and other services - The Fuji Pearl Color produces stunning images prints. - For prints larger than 8" X 10" I recommend mounting on foam board or double-weight backboard. Changes in humidity will cause larger prints to wrinkle over time. - The lustre coating is effective for protecting photos that you do not plan to put behind glass - The website will give you "best fit" sizes for your photos. You may also pick other print sizes. Whether you use best fit or other make sure you check and adjust the image cropping to your liking. - The website also offers color and exposure correction and I recommend using these particularly on larger prints.
Enjoy the pictures on my site, take a minute to sign the guestbook, buy a few if you like, and I hope that sometime I can work with you to capture the images that are in your minds eye.
