About - MADE WITH LIGHT

About

I'm a long time and forever student of photography for, coming up to, about 40 years!

This site is used to display my photos. I also post on facebook and flikr and am also a Focus Photography Group member.

You won't see a Photographer's Statement / Artist's Statement or similar here nor a long history of photographic awards or achievements. I'm happy to get any feedback you would like to share. I'm an amateur in the old original sense of the word - I do photography for the love of it. In my folios and projects I do describe what the project or folio is about and why. I photograph to satisfy my need to explore what's around me.    

While I don't think the how of photography matters much, it is important to understand and use photographic gear and processes efficiently so as to achieve a goal. So to me the outcome is what's important.

Fell free to contact me if you have any questions.

The following is what I use.

Camera bodies:

Fujifilm X-T2 and an Infrared converted Fujifilm X-E1. The X-E1 is discontinued now but is the first version of the X-E3. I had it converted to IR at Camera Clinic in Melbourne

Lenses:

Primes: Samyang 8mm f2.8, Laowa 9mm f2.8, Fujifilm - 14mm f2.8, 23mm f1.4, 35mm f2, 50mm f2, 60mm f2.4 macro, 90mm f2

Zooms: Fujifilm - 10-24mm f4, 16-55mm f2.8, 50-140 f2.8, 100-400mm f4.5-5.6

Other stuff:

Filters: NiSi and Lee; Tripods: Sirui, Gitzo and Manfroto with Acratech and Sirui heads; Bags: F-Stop and LowePro

Post-processing:

Mostly (80%) Adobe Lightroom and (20%) Adobe Photoshop. I sometimes (rarely) use other software such as Luminar 2018 or Nik.
