About my photos…

Most of my recent work is shot with Nikon gear…a Nikon D90 dslr with a Nikon D50 dslr as backup…plus an assortment of relatively inexpensive lenses…some of which are from film days and more than 30 years old. The image quality from some of this old glass is still unmatched today…they just don’t make ’em like they used to!

I made the BIG transition from film cameras to digital back in March of 2002, starting with a Sony Cybershot P50…incredibly it was only a 2-megapixel camera (like some cell-phone cams today!) yet cost almost as much as my latest Nikon dslr. Thank goodness camera prices have dropped so much since then…while technological innovations and picture quality have steadily risen!

My next foray into the digital world involved a Canon PowerShot S1-IS…a great little camera with a powerful zoom and image stabilization…but still only 3-megapixels. After a year with that I then advanced to my first digital SLR (Single Lens Reflex as opposed to P&S…Point & Shoot) with the 6-megapixel Nikon D50. This baby kept me quite happy until this past March 2009 when I acquired the amazing 12-megapixel Nikon D90…a great camera which can also shoot HD movies…the first dslr to do so…though I have yet to utilize that function to any degree…I really prefer still photos.

In addition, over the past 10 years or so, I’ve gradually learned a few of the many skills and techniques involved in the wonderful world of Adobe Photoshop…a truly amazing piece of software…and the world standard for photo editing and enhancement. This program offers the chance for unlimited creativity and fun with photos…not to mention how many poor to so-so pics it has rescued and even elevated to semi-greatness. More often than not, it’s been a real life-saver for me…I love it!

If you have any comments, questions or suggestions on any of my images or techniques, I’d really like to hear from you.

Thanks again for looking!
