photographer JAC K M E G E L A www.JackMegelaPhotography.com My work primarily involves natural light outdoor photogra- phy, using large format, medium format and 35mm film cam- eras.  The images are scanned on a high-resolution scanner and printed on archival photographic papers and on canvas.  They are about scenes and locals that inspire a sense of the divine in nature and in our man-made world; a feeling that something greater than ourselves is at work. I want people to feel what I see - a visual representation of what I experienced when I was there. To be able to look at a two dimensional image and imagine what it was like being there experiencing all five senses. My greatest challenge is in making good photographic images uniting the schools of impressionism and realism in the tradition of classic painters such as Monet and Renoir and photographic artists as John Shaw,  Ansel Adams, and David Muench.
