Second web site:
www.ghost-town-photography.com

I have been actively involved in all aspects of digital photography for the past 23 years. Used Photostyler before Adobe bought them out and came out with Photoshop 2.5 for the PC (now use PS CC). I currently use the Nikon D7200 and D7200 (wife's) with the Nikon 14-24mmf2.8, Nikon f2.8 24-70, Nikon 12-24 f4, Nikon 50mm f1.8, Nikon 16-80mm f2.8-4, Nikon 70-200mm VR f2.8, Nikon 300mm f4, Nikon 105mm VR, as well as a Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro and Tamro 2.8 28-75. . . and others. I change lenses often. Velbon Carmagne carbon tripod coupled with a Kirk head. Epson 3880 and 2880 (wife's), and a wide format Epson 7900. Flash is Nikon SB800 and Sigma EF500 with 5' umbrellas in the field, etc. Studio units are Elinchrome 1200 ws with 3' x 4' soft boxes.

I am an over-the-hill, retired photography instructor (MS in Photography from Brooks Institute). I no longer do corporate reports, weddings, portraits, stock photos, catalogues, or submit to magazines. I just shoot for FUN! (http//www.dustylens.com) (http//www.ghost-town-photography.com)
For this reason the nature of my work has changed. It no longer appeals to the average person. Some hate it. Some love it. It matters not. Even as I review my own work I can see some photos are very weak - and some are excellent. Funny thing is, few people agree with me on which is which!!! And that`s good.
