'Ospreys' has been published!

0 min read
My "Ospreys" photo has been published in this month's issue of Wildlife in North Carolina magazine. It was selected as the "Outdoor Moment," which is a monthly full-page feature inside the back cover. I took a quick shot of the feature with my cell phone, which you can see here: :thumb178054947: The original photo can be seen here: :thumb93429026: "Wildlife in North Carolina magazine is the official educational publication of the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.

Are you satisfied with digital photography?

I'm perfectly content with it.
I am disappointed with the results sometimes, but you can't beat the convenience.
I'm not happy with it, but I'm intimidated by the thought of using film processes.
I use both digital and film depending on the situation.
I don't like using digital but I use it when I have to, otherwise it's all film.
I gave up digital and started shooting film because I think the image quality is better.
I've been using film since the beginning of time, and will never touch a digital camera!

New Large-Format (4x5) Shots Finally!

0 min read
It took me longer than I expected, but I finally got my ten new 4x5 shots uploaded to my large format film gallery. They were all taken during my 4th of July vacation week, and the location for each photo is listed in its description. These shots were much more difficult to process because they were shot on Fuji Velvia 100F, which is a very dense color film. It took a lot of time and tweaking to get my scanner to produce fairly accurate and detailed scans from each sheet of film, but I'm happy with the results. A few of the shots didn't really benefit from color, so I converted them to B&W. I scanned them at 2000DPI, which produced TIF image
