Is there anything but Apple?
All this began at age 10 when I was given a Brownie Hawkeye camera and later that year, my parents built a small but very serviceable darkroom. Through the years, equipment changed and I learned by reading, doing and just plain taking a bunch of pictures. I seemed to settle into nature pictures (a friend calls them my “rocks and roots.” ) I gradually learned something of photographing people but I always seem to gravitate to what nature provides. Through the years I became a Nikon fan and today a digital Nikon fanatic. My workflow follows Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop ( I gave Apple's Aperture a good trial, but it just never made it for me. ) Currently, I use LR 4 and PS cs5
Have Camera Will Travel
For anyone interested, I am always open to projects ranging from portraits, animals or whatever the client and I can dream up. With rare exceptions, my work will be in keeping with the site name - we’ll use natural light and any shoot will be largely candid. A tour of my albums will give you the idea. I pick projects carefully because doing “whatever comes along” leads to mediocre results and being somewhat of a perfectionist, that just won’t work for me -- or for the client.
