I am photo hobbyist who uses flicker to post most of my non-dive related photography, both film based and digital. My dive related photos are at diver.net. My underwater photography from California by date can be seen here.
The best place on flickr to explore my photography is start with my collections and drill down to the topic, place, camera, lens, format, or film you are interested in.
I became interested in film photography again because of the developing and scanning service provided by Precision Camera & Video (PCV) in Austin, Texas, and North Coast Photographic Services (NCPS) in Carlsbad, California. Both of these operations use Noritsu scanners that scan full uncut rolls of film. They do outstanding 8 bit/channel scans on full and half frame 35mm, plus 6x4½ (645), 6x6, 6x7, and 6x9 120/220 transparencies and negatives.
I tend to use NCPS for all of my black and white and E-6, and PCV for C-41. Both do an outstanding job, but PCV more economical for C41 since they develop C-41 for free when you order scans.
The software I use to edit most of my images the 64-bit version of ACDSee Pro
My first experience with photography was in high school where I used a Ricoh Singelx and a Sears branded Gossen Pilot meter, bulk film, and developed, processed, and printed it myself.
In the early 1990s I became interested in stereo photography and did quite a bit with a Realist 45. Some of that can be seen at 3D-Photography.com. I have many 3D stereo anaglyphs here on flickr too
My photography (mostly underwater) is published in many books & scientific journals, and is used by the Smithsonian Institution, California Science Center, UCSB, REEF, The City of San Francisco, The Georgia Aquarium, The County of Mendocino, The Los Angeles Museum of Natural History, and many others, all with my express written permission.
Please ask before using my photos. I usually say yes to free use for most non-profit users, but not all.
The use of any of my copyrighted photos without my express written permission is forbidden by law. If you choose to steal one of my images you are liable for a minimum of $500 per image, plus all of my legal costs, and 10% annual interest on any unpaid amount.
