I don't remember exactly how I found out about it, maybe a letter from the Photoshop beta program, but they wanted images created in Photoshop for a contest called, Adobe Photoshop Digital Masters. I sent about a half dozen of my early works and was surprised to find out that I had been selected. In addition, my work "Photoflo", would appear in the 1993 "Digital Masters" show at the Ansel Adams Gallery, in San Francisco, during MacWorld.
Fortunately, I was able to attend the opening. Kodak had sent me to the SF Macworld tradeshow the same week. My work "Photo-flo" was very well received. Many notables in digital photography/art were there. Graham Nash had helped print the work for the show, and told me he "loved" my work. Graham, Stephen Johnson, Katrin Eismann, Bert Monroy, Rick Smolan and many others were among the first Adobe Photoshop Digital Masters. Adobe was creating a Digital Masters CD-ROM with the artwork of all the artists works. It was part of the Adobe Photoshop 3.0 Deluxe Version. A few more of the works that were on the CD are shown below.
The image was also licensed to a couple magazines over the next few years, including in a feature on my art in he Kodak Publication "More Slides". The image "Mendon Drain" below, was also in "More Slides" and it appeared in several newspapers in Fort Wayne, IN, where I was having my first showing of my digital work. Thanks to a student of one of my "Digital Photography" workshops at the Palm Beach Workshops, who was an art professor in Fort Wayne.
Around this time I also conducted an Intro to Digital Photgraphy workshop at the Sante Fe Photogaphy Workshops, as well.
