Photographic Story Buddy Owen started his fish market out of a little wagon more than 25 years ago, and now both he and his restaurant, Bo’s Fish Wagon, are a bit of a local legend. The place is anything but fancy, a sort of sea shack with great food. To me, the place is representative of the laid-back reputation of old Key West. The Art of Hand Painting Black and White Photographs Photographed with a Sony digital camera and instead of oil painting with Q-tips and cotton balls, Niki was able to paint using Photoshop. Changing from the old-fashioned way of doing her art, to the new ‘fashion’ of using technology was challenging, but she’s enjoying getting back to her own personal expression. Archival Print Making Niki’s open edition gicleé artwork is printed on Sunset Bright Velvet Rag matte finish paper using eight archival inks. A state-of-the-art Epson Stylus Pro printer creates deep, rich dark values that hold subtle detail in the shadows as well as bright vivid colors that are truly tropical.
