A biography takes a little time to write (and usually only mothers are really interested). Check back later - maybe vanity will win and I will add something here.
The number of pixels on the average computer screen keeps growing. Years ago, VGA screens where top of the line and displayed 640 x 480 pixels. But even today, the dimensions of most computer screens are less than 2,000 x 1,200 pixels and most photographs on websites are smaller than this. That brings several considerations to choosing images for web displays: large megapixel photographs can be cropped to show only the most important message; images made on older cameras (before the megapixel wars) are still suitable for screen display; and there is a need to throw away most of those pixels I spent so much money to capture! So, regarless of the camera used most photographs on this site are resized to a mazimum of 1,600 pixels wide. That makes them small enough to load quickly but large enough to show details.
The photographs e were taken over the years with several digital cameras. The older ones came from a 2MP Olympus 2100UZ and a 4MP Olympus E10. Both of these are now obsolete but were innovative in their time and both had very high quality lenses. The 2100UZ had a 10x zoom and also had image stabilization while the E10 was one of the first general-purpose cameras with a commercial quality image. I recently updated to a Pentax K-5. This is a significant improvement on the old Pentax K10D I used for over 10,000 photographs and has has technical capabilities beyond by artistic abilities. I stay with Pentax because of the compatibility with millions of older Pentax lenses. My camera bag includes the DA18-55mm f3.5-4.6 kit lens, the FA31mm and FA77mm LTDs; manual focus KA50mm f1.7, M135mm f/3.5, M200mm f/4.0, M300 f/4.0 (relics from the late 70s); and Sigma's 105mm f/2.8 macro. Any flash photos are likely to be taken with the Pentax 540FGZ with assorted simple light modifiers.
I generally shoot RAW and use Adobe's Lightroom to process and manage my photographs. Lightroom combines power with ease of use and makes post-processing part of the fun and not a drudge. These web pages were generated using Lightroom web modules created by Matthew Campagna at The Turning Gate (TTG). TTG web engines are very flexible and provide a wealth of options allowing non-technical folks like me to create a stylish websites and displays directly from Lightroom.
These pages do not use Adobe Flash. That is a deliberate choice to make the pages compatible with largest number of Browsers (and all those Apple products whihc don't support Flash). The downside is that a simple right-click often allows anyone to copy an image. Please don't. They are all copyrighted. If you would like a copy of any image just contact me. If it is for a non-profit use I am sure we can quickly agree a simple license that keeps things legal. If it is to hang on the wall then you really should print from a full file. Again, I am sure we can reach an equitable arrangement - photography is my hobby, not my profession!
