Wink new to this site

HI,
My name is Les. I live in western New York. Started scrolling about 1-1/2 yrs ago. I have a Dewalt 788 which I rigged up a foot pedal that lifts the blade. I almost only do portraits. I do friends and relatives who have passed away and give them to the families. I have done a few fallen soldiers for the families also. Currently doing some of the Buffalo Sabres. I try to include a lot of detail. I just entered a very exclusive juried show and am hoping to make it. Take a look. Les-jr

Hi les-jr
Welcome to the best place for scrolling. You should put up pictures of some of your work. We would love to see them.

Welcome. Very nice portraits. What software do you use to convert the photos?

Thanks mike. I use both microsoft digital image pro and Photoshop. Also my wacom graphics tablet is the best! I like the way digital image adjusts the contrast and brightness, and the way photoshop allows layering and touchups. Any idea why I posted 7 photos but only see 4 when I view my album? Les
