I like taking photos. I don’t like workflow management, post-production editing or figuring out how to make this blog work correctly. My only goal is to take better photos. Hopefully, this blog helps motivate me and measure my progress.
I shoot with the camera I have with me — including my iPhone 4s. Many of my older photos were made using my Nikons (N70, N90, D3 or D4). Recently, I’ve mostly switched over to Leica — a D-Lux5 or a M9. I like that with Leica I carry less gear and use the lens I have with me. I also find myself paying more attention to composition, light and aperture with Leica — but I’ve got a LOT left to learn.
If I do post-production editing, I use Lightroom with the Silver Efex or Color Efex plug-ins. I had ADD long before it was fashionable so my editing is mostly light and quick.
There’s usually something I was looking for when I snapped a particular shot but its rare that I actually get it right. Sometimes though I do like what I see. Taking more photos helps.
Over the last couple of years I’ve had to chance to meet a number of really great photographers (serendipity). One of them gently chided me to work harder to share my work with others. Elliott thanks!
