Nature of Photography

Equipment

I am faithful to my subject - that means my images depict only the subject matter as originally seen through the lens of my camera. My cameras are the Nikon D850 and Nikon D3s with a range of Nikon lenses. I have used Nikon equipment for over 40 years and have always been more than happy with their quality and durability. I had a Nikon FM2 camera for many years and shot transparency film, many of those slides have been scanned and converted into digital images - some of which appear on this website. All DSLR cameras will give excellent results. The quality of the images depends much more on the photographer's technique rather than the camera used.

All digital images have to be processed. This can take place within the camera before the data is written to the memory card and/or outside the camera by imaging software installed on a computer. For my image processing I use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom www.adobe.com/products/photoshoplightroom/ This program is designed for photographers, it provides a complete working environment in which you can access, sort, edit and process your images.

To print my images I use Epson printers, I have a SureColor P800 and a Stylus Pro 3880 they print images up to a size of A2 and I have a large format Stylus Pro 9800 that prints images just over a metre wide. These printers use UltraChrome K3 pigment inks that produce not only a wide colour gamut but also very stable long lasting fine art prints.
