Photographer Wins Award with a Little Help from Photoshop

Suzanne Pitts

Some could argue that her method is not art, in the sense that there’s no paint brush or pencil involved, but Suzanne Pitts unabashedly uses her computer to enhance her photography. Some effects, she says, can only be created by the computer.

“It’s not the computer creating the art, but the vision and skill of the artist using the computer as a tool to express art,” Suzanne avers.

Last October, Suzanne won the Grand Prize of the 2006 O’Reilly Digital Media Photoshop Cook-off contest with a photo that she enhanced by using the computer to twirl hues around three ballet dancers, transforming the raw, “nondescript photo,” into a “dramatic form.”
