Most of these photographs have been made with medium format 6 x 7 film and tripod and are then drum scanned into multi-gigabyte files. In 2011, I made the switch to digital cameras. Thus, my collection represents a combination of film and digital prints. Exposures last up to 30 seconds, the average exposure being about one second. I generally carry three lenses: a wide angle, a normal, and a small telephoto.
Ansel Adams likened the negative to a musical score and the print to a performance. In other words, photographs are made, not taken. Because the final performance or interpretation of the image is highly personal, I process my own photographs using Adobe Lightroom. The computer is now my darkroom where I use the traditional techniques of dodging, burning, color balance, contrast and density to create the image. In my view, this new technology leads to far superior prints and unrivaled archival qualities. My procedures are elaborate and meticulous. These processes often take an entire day for a single image.
