All of the images presented on this web site have been made with small or medium format
cameras, particularly the Canon EOS 1N,
the Mamiya 645 AF
or the Canon Power Shot G10 camera, mounted on a Bogen 3221 tripod.
Mirror lockup features, shutter release cables, and the tripod are frequently used in order to create the negatives I seek.
Most of my black-and-white images through
2008 were cast on Kodak Tri-X (ASA 400) film forged in D-76, although I
have also used
other brands of films and developers, depending upon circumstances.
Before digital imaging, color images were made with a variety of films ranging
anywhere between ASA 25 and 200.
In the past, gelatin silver prints were made with a Beseler 23C III condenser enlarger using Schneider Componon-S lenses. These
prints were primarily made with Kodak Ektalure, Agfa Multicontrast Classic and Forte Polywarmtone Plus papers
which I processed to generally acceptable archival standards.
Now, digital prints are made with an Epson Stylus Photo R2400 printer, using UltraChrome K-3 inks
and generally Epson Premium Glossy Photo or Velvet Fine Art paper,
Moab Entrada Fine Art Natural 190 paper, or Ilford Galerie
Gold Fibre Silk paper.
For purposes of web presentation, finished images are
sometimes scanned with an Epson Perfection 4990 Photo flatbed scanner at a low
resolution or more generally transferred directly from Adobe's
Photoshop CS6, then organized in Microsoft FrontPage 2000, and uploaded via CuteFTP
