Ed Martin is a retired cinematographer. (In 1956, Ed signed on with Louis Clyde Stoumen at Camera Eye Pictures. Ed worked as a cinematographer on "The Naked Eye" - filming photographers, such as Edward Weston, Weegee, Margaret Bourke-White and Alfred Eisenstadt. He also photographed "The True Story of the Civil War." The former film received an Academy Award nomination; the latter won an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Film in 1957.) He is currently very active in fine art still photography. His flower arrangements are made on and recorded on a large photo scanner with high resolution files that are transferred to Photoshop on his computer. This technique enables him to produce very sharp printed images as large as 48 x 60 inches.
Ed will describe an earlier technique he developed in which his darkroom enlarger substituted for a camera to record this flower images on 11 x 14 reversal color film. A large body of work was produced this way. He specialized in flower and plant photography with an occasional skull, bug, or small animal included in the composition. His work is shown at the Weston Gallery in Carmel , Tim Yarger Gallery of Fine Art in Beverly Hills , found in private collections as well as Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, and was exhibited at the Duncan/Miller gallery during MOPLA.
