D. Payne on the internet and commonly known as Joseph in the real world.
A confused b-school grad with a serious interest in different creative pursuits - digital design/art, copywriting and photography among others.

The gear story so far:
Started with a 1.3MP BenQ in 2002.
Graduated to a 3.2MP 36mm prime-lens Canon A310 in 2004.
Moved on to a Sony H2 superzoom from 2006 to 2007.
Got my first DSLR in 2008 - a Sony A300 with Tamron 17-50 f2.8 and Sony 18-250 lenses

Now the proud owner of:
Sony Alpha A850 body
Minolta 17-35 f2.8-4
Minolta 28-75 f2.8
Minolta 80-200 f2.8
Minolta 24-105 f3.5-4.5
Sony 50mm f1.4
Rokinon 85mm f1.4

Sony HVL-42AM flash
3 x Quantaray PSZ DZ1 flashes
Cactus V4 triggers

Kata 3n1-20, DR-467 bags
Manfrotto monopod and lightstands, SLIK Tripod
..and a bunch of B+W/Tiffen/Hoya/Generic filters :D

My photography:
Loves to shoot anything and everything. From portraits to landscapes to macro to street. :) Likes the photojournalistic genre, especially the NG style of wide-angle to ultra-wide-angle storytelling! Hates direct flash photographs and prefers available lighting as far as possible. Recently started dabbling with macros and artificial lighting.

Likes to experiment with post-processing, believes that one makes photographs, not take them. (A hangover from the digital design bit. :D)
