NikonNikonNet honors photographer Jill Enfield : Photographers have long known that a memorable photograph needs to not only capture the essence of the subject in front of the lens, but also the heart and soul of the photographer behind the lens. While Jill Enfield photographs seemingly ordinary objects, her unique style of hand-coloring images presents an art that is all her own. NikonNet's inspiring monthly showcase, "Legends Behind the Lens" honors Enfield during October with a portfolio of her most recognizable art, and a glimpse into the thought and technique behind her hand-crafted masterpieces. "Jill's work is unique and has inspired other photographers to experiment with alternative processes." said Anna Marie Bakker of Nikon.

"Photography is a jumping off point," Enfield remarks. "It's not what I do, or certainly not all that I do. I use photography to do my artwork. I guess it's not so much that I'm just a photographer. I want to make these other pieces, and they start with photography because I don't draw and I don't really paint." Enfield enjoys the process of creating the image, as much as she values the end result. She comments, "I like to work in the darkroom and I like to work with my hands. I especially like having a lot of choices." The alternative processes and hand-coloring are ways of going beyond the mechanical aspect of photography to put a personal stamp on the work. "I can give an image additional emotional weight," says Enfield. "The colors I use when I hand-color a photograph are not an attempt to recreate what I saw when I took the picture, but rather to depict how the place made me feel when I saw it. The image is my memory of that feeling." Jill also teaches the alternative processes she uses: cyanotype, kallitype, palladium and Van Dyke Brown.
