About My Images
The initial image capture in my digital camera is just the first of three steps. The chosen images are then given an initial processing to clean up distractions and balance the light and colors. These two steps are actually quite mechanical, even though both require a fair amount of skill, effort, loss of sleep, and training. Step three allows the artist to take over. Without the constraints of trying to merely imitate nature and the shot I saw, I am able to deliver an image the way I want the viewer to see it. In some cases, the changes are subtle—but significant.
About My Equipment
Current Equipment: Nikon D5, Nikon D850, and Nikon D500 pro bodies. For lenses, I use a Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 wide angle lens, Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 mid-range zoom lens, and Nikon 200-400mm f/4 telephoto zoom lens. I also use a Tamron 150-600mm G2 lens, Sigma Sport 60-600mm lens, Tamron 18-400mm, and Sigma 24mm Art Lens. When needed, I use a RRS carbon fiber, four piece tripod, and either an Arca Swiss Z-1 Ballhead or a Wimberley Full Gimbal head.
