I am now semi-retired and, while I have never completely lost my interest in photography, now have the time and freedom from child-raising and business career to concentrate on becoming a better-than-just-good photographer.
My main interest these days seem to be:
* available light photography
My photo equipment has evolved from Minolta rangefinders to Canon SLR's to Nikon Digital SLRs over the years. Present line-up, affordable on my modest retirement means:
* Canon 520 4.0mp digital (my grab camera, always in the car with me)
Currently I shoot raw except for sports, and import using Nikon Transfer, sort and label with Photo Mechanic, and edit using CaptureNX/NX2. Arcserve PhotoImpressions 6 is used for retouching TIFF files, which are my finished masters. ResizeIt gets used for upsizing. I used to use DxO but have given up as it doesn't cover the D1H nor most of my lenses and has stopped working with Windows upgrades.
My editing is done on an Athlon Machine running XP Pro, and viewed on a 22' LCD screen calibrated by a Spyder2Express. Printing is done via an Epson CX8400.
In addition to the equipment listed iabove, I currently have an unused extra large Domke bag with a Canon FD28/2.0 lens and a Kiron FD28-70/3.5-4.5 lens awaiting disposal or recycling, but I seem to have lost my interest in film photography (I was never a darkroom guy, and I'm still trying to figure out what to do with about 2000 slides and 800 prints from the old days).
