We have a great respect and admiration for all of our Better Light owners, but occasionally some step forward with extraordinary photographic talents and the ability and confidence to push the capabilities of the scanning back beyond the norm to produce amazing images. This list represents some of those who have excelled in their use of the Better Light scanning back and have been willing to share their images and insight to their creative process .

Stephen Galloway

Shelley Lake – Sky Lake Studios

Ron Finley believes that when you have a scanning back that produces great images and huge files you should use it whenever possible...and using it for trickier subjects is irresistible! For small products, automobiles, composites, and even portraits, capturing more pixels is worth the effort.
Stephen Galloway is an artist creating photographic fine art images with a unique perspective on nature. Using the Better Light scanning back to capture realistic detail for large prints, Stephen is able to create unique compositions from the textures and shapes found in unexpected subject matter.
Shelley Lake's background in art and science provides a unique vision to produce images from nature and everyday life. Her artistic interpretations capture the essence of having been there. The intimate detail recorded by the Better Light scanning back and the Pano/WideView™ adapter has taken Shelley's storytelling art form to the next level.
