What kinds of events/places do you like to photograph?

I like to show normal items from angles that are not commonly seen. Like my Night Rain Images. Also extreme macro images. As well as things that catch my eye due to there ability to show how beautifully broken we as well as our environment can be.

What kind of equipment do you use?

I am using several different 2 and 1/4 by 3 and 1/4, up to 5 by 7 Field/View cameras. Cameras that have at least a Front Standard with full or most studio movements. The reason/need for these movements is to allow for perceptive, and selective focus control functions. By altering the angle that the light hits the sensor/light sensitive plate. I am dabbling in bending light, and collecting images generated by wet and dry Collodion, with Silver Nitrate Prints, as well as [Ag] compounds, also [Au] compounds, also [Fe] and [Cu] compounds on [Sn]=Tin, or on Glass, or on sealed watercolor paper. It is a pricey way to create art, But a blending of the 1850's tech and add today's tech, in the application of the layers of collodion, light sensitive compound layers, with separate processes for the different layers.

How would you describe your level of experience?

I find this question amusing. I understand the uses of DIN, ASA, and ISO. As the ability of the "plate/film/sensor" to collect light. The corresponding aperture opening, and shutter speeds, to work with the ambient light, along with any extra on and or off camera light. The terms of "amateur, or professional", are far to loosely defined. So my short answer is that I am an Adept Master, in a plethora of disciplines concerning arts of Painting With Light. Light Capture Imaging. Light sensitive compounds and there processing, or, Fine Art Photographer


I Tink therefor I am. As this word is primarily used in a derogatory manner. Perhaps Bricolage would be to the liking of a wider group.
