Article from "All American Chevys" magazine
Amy Shiotani is a acclaimed artist and well known fashion photographer,
recruited by a close friend recently to take pictures of his 1955 Chevrolet.
Adept at angles and balance, color and depth, she turned her skills toward
automobiles with the same enthusiasm. As her pal stated, "When I watched
her work, I could have sworn my car was starting to pose!"
Breathing life into her pictures, Amy is currently compiling a collection of
classic car photographs in anticipation of cataloging the vintage vehicles
along with their owners for an upcoming book.

Digital retouching is fast becoming a very unique form of art. As a
Photographer and Digital Designer, ancient black and whites, 20th Century
color pictures and the newest digital photographs can be captured and
converted instantaneously into spectacular and stunning visual images. Make
no mistake - creativity coupled with computer technology gets the best look!
Catchy, sexy - sharp!
Whether compiling a catalog or designing a web page, the new spin is going
digital and products and services are changing - attempting to catch up with
the speed of light. Take an old and damaged picture, add a little digital
sculpting and what do you have? Grandad looking as good as new. Dark
circles, laugh lines and wrinkles - fading into the past.
"Wom, mom, wow." People used to flip and now they are doing cartwheels.
Accuracy and information, images and music, add a little here, take a little
there, airbrush, crop, expand and shade. Fade in, fade out, maximize,
minimize, let your dreams come true. Digital retouching requires a steady
hand, trained eye and plenty of imagination. Bad day, who cares? Science
and art - a perfect blend. Go ahead, touch me, gently...and do it again.
With computers and the internet, my little business has exploded. E-mail
after e-mail setting up photo sessions and shoots. And then the fun
begins...working with the actors and actresses, models, the people and their
products. Take me to Italy, send Mom flowers in Japan, get the Jamaican
Jerk chicken recipe and listen to some tunes, contemporaneously . All the
while promoting www.FunkyUSA.com. Check it out. Take a peek and see. Get
ready for the next wave - cause if you're going digital, do it in
