Most photographs on this site were taken with Canon 10D digital camera. I usually use Canon EF 17-40 f/4L lens, which provides exceptional sharpness and color fidelity
at all apertures. My other lenses are Canon EF 70-200 f/4L and Canon EF 50/1.4. I shoot only in RAW format and process my photos in Adobe Camera Raw converter.
The post-processing is usually limited to only minimal color correction, sharpening and in some cases, noise reduction.
I recently purchased the Wista 45DXII large format camera. It is very lightweight and highly suitable for work in the field, and its movements allow for
precise focusing and perspective control. I use Fuji Velvia 100 and Velvia 100F films in Quickloads, so that I can reduce the total weight of my equipment
by using only one film holder (Polaroid 545). My large format lenses are Schneider Symmar-S 210mm f/5.6 and Graphlex Optar 135mm f/4.7.
Transparencies are scanned on the Polaroid SprintScan 45 Ultra film scanner. Scanning in 48-bit mode at maximum optical resolution of 2571 dpi results in roughly 100 million
pixels image, which is suitable for elargement up to 24"x36".
I print my photos on the Epson 3800 Pro printer using variety of semi-matte and matte papers. My favorites are Epson UltraSmooth, Epson Premium Luster and Epson Velvet fine art
