.. And GOD Said:

...and THEN There Was Light
Fortunately, we don't need to actually use Maxwell's equations
when we seek to capture the elusive light
as it paints images on the landscapes around us.
Analog & Digital
The last few years I have had more time to explore both the
landscapes themselves, and the art of imaging them. Most of the
photographs you will see here are still created the traditional way,
that is to say, on film. After developing them in the downstairs
darkroom, I digitize them with a high resolution hi-bit drum scanner.
Now in the realm of digital, they are archived on DLT tape and
eventually printed on an Epson 4000 wide format printer. For such
film-based medium format images, the scanned-file size is typically
200-300 megapixels. Consequently, final print sizes of 60 inch
width or greater, with no artifacts of up-interpolation, are easily
accomplished. Most of the images in the gallery are downsized from
Recently, in my spare time, I have shot a few thousand frames
in low resolution digital (8-16 megapixels). These can make very
acceptable 16x20 prints . Combined with new lens correction
software, and attention to control points, multiple frames can be
stitched together to achieve a high resolution image. Vernal
the gallery following illustrates the result. It was formed by
combining more than 25 individual frames, and contains 200 megapixels
of useful data.
and then digitize with the drum
So without further ado, here are some sample photographs from my portfolio...
