Jeff Salvage

One of the new-age photographers, Jeff Salvage scoffs at those that say digital photography is not on par with film. While the early digital cameras were mere toys, Salvage believes that today's Digital SLRs are every bit as good and in many regards better than their film counterparts.

Salvage carries his Canon EOS D1-Mark II and his trusty Canon EOS D60 with him whenever he travels. A Senior Lecturer at Drexel University, Salvage understands what the camera can do and what should be tweaked on the computer. With that said all of Salvage's images presented are only minimally enhanced from the original camera created image. No combining of images or computer trickery are used unless duly noted.

Salvage claims to have been the first or at least one of the first to take professional grade digital photographic equipment to high altitudes. In March of 2003 he climbed to just over base camp on Mount Everest. His photographs and a brief article on High Teching in the Himalayas was published in 2004 by What Digital Camera Magazine.

Recently, his race walking photographs have/are being published around the country in various magazines and newspapers as coverage of the pending Olympic race walks near.

In addition to being a contributing photographer to this site, Salvage is also the web master. In his spare time he also maintains and has authored 8 books on subjects as vast as the U.S. government, computer programming, and race walking.

Todd Johnson

Todd Johnson was born and raised in Atlantic City, New Jersey, where he resided until his mid-twenties. Todd's interest for creating art was sparked at an early age by his mother, Gladys, and her sister, his aunt Jean, who used to do paint-by-numbers paintings to his amazement. While attending school in the Atlantic City public school system, he always looked forward to art class. Todd always loved to walk on the boardwalk to see the host of charcoal/pastel portrait and charicature artists.

Todd went to Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey where he majored in business and minored in studio art, which mainly consisted of drawing. It was not until after college that Todd began to dabble in painting. His early interest was in realism, and during that period he was heavily influenced by the photo-realistic paintings of Norman Rockwell.

Over the years he has come to realize that there are many mediums and styles through which art can be expressed; whether it be acrylic paint brushed on to canvas, paints sprayed on via an airbrush or aerosol spray can; Todd is always interested in finding the best way of expressing his artistic ideas. Now with the onset of digital cameras and technology, Todd has been very interested in incorporating digital with conventional fine art.

One of his favorite mediums is acrylic. Many of Todd's paintings take on a stained glass look due to his use of vibrant colors and black outlines. This stained glass look has become one of his signiture styles.

Whether conventional painting or Digi-art Todd loves expressing himself thru his art. It is his sincere wish to touch others via his art.

Want to Join?
Currently, the Two Feet Gallery is entertaining applications for membership. Based in the Philadelphia metropolitan area the gallery is currently only seeking eclectic artists that are based in the Philadelphia region. The gallery does not charge membership or commissions. The concept is simple. Ecletic artists all actively promoting the site will promote each other. As a collective of artists my concept is that we will all do better than setting up individual sites without any exposure.
