Hometown: Milford, NJ
May 8, 2013
Advanced amateur. I used to do some free-lance photojournalism and portrait work but am only this year getting back out again.
For 35mm format I use a Leica iiif and for medium format a Rolleiflex Automat M/X, both from 1951. I have a set of lenses for the Leica. Needless to say, I shoot film in black and white.
Yes. I have my film put on disk to distribute online (I'm not a complete Luddite) and if I want prints I have the camera shop make them from the original negative. I almost never crop and use Photoshop to adjust tones as I would in a darkroom or shrink the size of an image so I can post it as required to online forums.
I've lived in Milford, NJ for 16 years. I enjoy all kinds of photography including street, landscape, wildlife/nature, and portraiture and there are plenty of opportunities for all of them in this area.
