Themes of nature, solitude, faith, impermanence, joy, amusement, natural and cultural landscapes, the sky, and patterns in time and space, all driven by the profound 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
- 3.2 GHz iMac with 32 GB RAM; OS X v 10.14.6
- 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.
