The Everyday Photographer

Photography is all about “light”, and only natural light is used in my photos…nothing artificial. Photographers especially love the warm tones associated with “the golden hour” before sunset or classic side light. I also love the light in fog, rain and snow because of its unique, but often overlooked characteristics.

I learned photography basics on a 35mm film camera, but I am now completely “digital”. All digital images inherently require some kind of adjustment…..my philosophy is to make a minimum amount of change:
  • My camera settings are “neutral” for color, contrast and sharpness.
  • Only modest adjustments are then made on the computer, usually similar to those made in photo labs, i.e. contrast, minor color adjustment, etc.
  • I print all photos to personally control their final appearance and integrity.
I am not enticed by the “hottest” new equipment on the market. My requirements are embarrassingly simple: one digital SLR body, three lenses, a tripod, and a couple of filters… that’s it! I am most concerned in meeting the challenge of composing images that delight the soul and create lasting memories.
