About me:

I’m a hobby nature and macro amateur photographer; for me, photography gives me something interesting to do while I enjoy the outdoors. In the 80s and 90s I primarily shot with Nikon, learning a lot from nature photographer John Shaw. Switched to Canon in 2003 due to much faster focusing via USM and excellent early IS. Dabbled in MFT (Oly OMD, then EM-1) for a couple of years but was never happy with the noise even at modest ISO. Switched to Sony Alpha 6 & 7 series mirrorless to have lens compatibility between the two systems with their respective advantages. Recently went back to FF only using Sony’s a7arii and A9. Prefer sharp primes but will use GM zooms for convenience. Shoot exclusively in RAW since it’s as practical as JPG when using Adobe's Lightroom for non-destructive editing. No longer print at home - Costco does a fantastic job from 4x6 to large canvas prints at a cost impossible to beat printing at home - and without the hassle of dealing clogged print nozzles, head alignments…
