About me

After an absence of a dozen or so years I am back. I have learned a lot about myself and photography and taken many photographs in the process. These days It is a time of more reflection than exploration / experimentation ... but I have learned to include more people in my shots although they tend to be the more personal ones which include my extended family. In the 50 or so years I have been taking photographs I have realized that no matter how much I have learned, it is really only very little in the big scheme of things.

Nature is my subject matter of choice - both in the distant, mid range and close range style. I am fascinated by the textures, colors, details and light of nature and strive to capture the often missed details you can lose sight of in grand landscapes.

My earliest photographs while growing up were done via various point and shoot film cameras, well into my early 20's. Then I began using a Pentax film camera and eventually migrated to a low end Nikon digital camera. Once my interest in photgraphy became more earnest I moved to a Pentaxs 1stDS. After a year or so I migrated to the Canon 5Dx series and stayed with them for several years and iterations through to the Mark 2. I leaped to the 1Dx and stayed with it for several years adding a mirrorless M3 to the mix for those situations were size was an issue. Eventually age and practicalities set in and I went to a much smaller kit focues around the Panasonic Lumix D9 and those handfull of keys lens my Canons years taught me were conducive to my style. Today I am most happy with my Lumix and would recommend it to all amatuers looking to simplify their rig without giving up on performance. I am at the end of my photgrap[hy journey now and happy with what I have got and have had.

During my Canon years I resisted Adobe software and used Canons' DPP software for post production. Once I went to Panasonic I knew I would have to finally embrace Adobe which I have done and wonder why I didn't do so earlier ... oh yes I remember now, because they insist on doing so much in a non-Windows way that it it frustrated the heck out of me ... I finally learned to do it their way and it works wonderfully, but I do think their non-Windows style and approach of doing so many things is their loss.
