EquipmentMost images on this site were taken with cameras. :)
I used to have a smart alec sentence here which asked what did it matter which kinds I used. Well, that was in the days of film. The body was just a light-tight box. Now, the sensor does matter. Most of the images here were taken with either a Leica M6 or a Canon EOS 1v and trusty film. Many of the newest ones were taken with a Canon EOS 5D, 40D, or 1D IV.
Curious what Fujicolor Superia 1600 looks like, exposed at 1600? I was, too. Film shots were scanned on a Polaroid SS4000 at 2000 or 4000 dpi. Depended on what size print I wanted to make at the time. Resized for the web using Photoshop.
While we're at it, here's a calibration bar I've used to set my monitor so I can see the blackest black and the whitest white:
A detailed calibration page is also available.
Digital EthicsWhat makes you think I have any ethics let alone digital ones? I limit my digital manipulations such that the images I present are as close as possible to the ones I imagined.
