Equipment

I use a lot of Nikon stuff, film and digital, older and modern lenses. My black & white images are mostly done on film, but some are done digitally and then converted. I like the intimacy that my old film body with a 50mm lens brings. People open up and care less about being photographed than with a larger digital camera and bigger lenses. It also perfectly prevents me from looking at the display after each shot to see whether it worked. I focus more on seeing and shooting well that way.

My landscape work is done almost always with a big sturdy tripod, digital cameras and whatever lens feels right for the subject. I do get up before first light a lot, though.

Hard at work in the scaffolds, workers appear as black outlines against the morning sky. Only one is lit enough to make out the details and colors of his clothes.

I was lucky to get just enough light on him, with the others mostly dark, to make this shot work well.
