Photography

Photo Information

All the photographs on this site are, unless otherwise indicated, taken by myself. You may be interested in what equipment I use and some of the techniques. So, in the following sections I give a brief overview of both, along with some basic recommendations. Note that these recommendations are biased toward bird photography. 

This section is under development - please be patient.

My Equipment

Latest Equipment (Mirrorless)

In 2021 I started the move to mirrorless cameras. As of 2024 I am using two camera bodies - Canon's R5 and R7. Lens selections remain largely the same as for my older digital equipment (with a gradual transition to RF lenses).

I will add much more detail to this section during  the latter part of 2024.

Older Equipment (Digital)

2003 is when I began using digital SLR cameras and the following year the transition to digital was complete. This transition was quicker than I expected. Since then the advances have continued. One of the most significant improvements has been in the sensitivity (ISO equivalent) of these cameras - I would use ISO 800 and higher without worrying about (excessive) loss of quality.

Ancient Equipment (Film)

Prior to 2000 all my photography was done with 35mm SLR camera equipment using Olympus OM4 bodies, Olympus and Sigma lenses. Lenses included 35-80mm f/2.8, 65-200mm f/4, 180mm f/2.8 and 500mm f/7.2. All were manual focus lenses.

Film (what's that?): my choice was typically Fuji or Kodak ISO 100, 200 or 400.
