I was invited by the folks at Light, who are working on some pretty interesting camera technology, to write about my favorite vantage point. I explained to them, as I'm explaining to you now, that I don't have one. I get bored with shooting the same locations and I'm always on the lookout for new … Continue reading My favorite vantage point for photography
Here are several details captured on 35mm film. I love how film is readily nostalgic whereas digital photographs have to be edited heavily in order to make them so. I think what that says about digital sensors is that there's plenty of work still to be done to them. Because to me, unless I feel … Continue reading Details on film

If you're wondering about the processing, they were captured on 35mm film with an Exakta EXA Ia camera, scanned in from the negatives and edited in Lightroom and Photoshop.

A few years ago, there were two companies which had some interesting opportunities ahead of them: Sigma with its revolutionary Foveon sensor and lens-making know-how, and FujiFilm with its remarkable Super CCD SR sensor and long-term experience with professional lens-making. They didn't stay on course. Sigma's continued development of the sensor has been much too … Continue reading What happened to Sigma and FujiFilm DSLRs?
Given the popularity of, and interest in mirrorless "DSLRs" like the Sony NEX-5 or NEX-3, Olympus E-P2 or E-PL1, Panasonic GF1 or G2, and the Samsung NX-10, I believe Canon is at work on their version of the "micro-DSLR", and has been for at least a few months. (Why do I use quotes when I … Continue reading Is Canon at work on a mirrorless “DSLR”?
