Themes of nature, solitude, faith, impermanence, natural and cultural landscapes, the sky, and patterns in time and space, driven by a profound sense of the mystery of the world we live in, motivate most of my photographs.
For those who are interested in such things, my equipment includes:
- Nikon D7000 DSLR
- Nikon D40 DSLR
- Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 Compact
- Fujifilm X100T
- Fujifilm X-T3
- 2.0 GHz MacBook with 4 GB RAM/3.2 GHz iMac with 16 GB RAM; OS X v 10.11.6
- Capture One 20 Pro
- Depreciated: Lightroom 5/Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 plug-in/Aperture
- A small selection of Nikon lenses, a few filters, and an old Manfrotto tripod; I also have acquired a Manfrotto BeFree carbon fiber travel tripod which matches perfectly with the Fuji X100T. I also have Jobo GorillaPod that can be kept attached to a camera and carried easily. It can be pressed against a wall or the ground, set on a table or bench, even wrapped around a railing to steady the camera in low light, low iso conditions; especially suited to “macro” use with the LX-7 and X100T. All the tripods have Manfrotto quick-change ball heads.
While the header photograph for this page might suggest that I still use film and a wet darkroom, I abandoned all of that, after nearly 40 years of it, for the digital world.
My spouse and I make our home on a small farm in rural northeastern Ohio. I have included a link to three of my essays on photography along with a general link to my other blog in the right side panel of this page.
I hope you enjoy your time here. Please leave comments if you are moved to do so.
