I've always enjoyed photography. It all started when I was twelve when I built a photo lab in my basement. I was hooked immediately. I spent hours down there making black and white prints. While I enjoyed the wet lab process, digitial is much more fun.
I tend to take pictures of a variety of things and I like to experiment with different photo effects on occasion. Since my camera is small, I tend to drag it everywhere.
My gear history:
Canon FTb - Film
2M pixel Canon S200 camera. - Still works.
8M Mpixel Nikon P3. - Gone - took a ride on the roof of my car.
Nikon D80: It's an amazing piece of equipment. I still drag my P3 with me everywhere though! Just bought a 50mm f1.8 lens - they're only $95 and they perfect for portraits.
Olympus SW1030. I brought it because it's waterproof to 30ft, freeze proof and crush proof! The quality is reasonable.
Fuji F70EXR. has a nice optical zoom and some interesting low light features. It's a reasonable, small camera. - Not used much anymore.
Just bought a Sony A6000 earlier this year with a telephoto zoom and kit lens. I also bought an adapter so I can use my Nikon lenses. This definitely replaces my Nikon D80. The autofocus is FAST and the frame rate approaches 12 frames/second. Great for action shots.
iPhone 6+ - Yes - I consider it to be a good camera. I use hyperlapse frequently.
PBS contacted me the other day and told me my photo would be used as a backdrop for a choir on show coming up next year and asked me for a website reference so, I put this together... It's not really finished yet, so if you have any comments, I'd appreciate any input!
I found a very cool site called Yesterdayslife. It creates a very nice gallery view of your photos.
