ABOUT THE PHOTOS
I try to always look for unique views for the photos I take. I also try my hardest in my landscape photography to not include people within the shot. I know, not always possible. They say the perfect photo is a matter of timing, and this has really proven true. Sometimes the shot just happens, sometimes you have to wait.
ABOUT THE EQUIPMENT
I am a proud user of the Sony Alpha line of Cameras, but please don't ask me to get into the whole Sony vs. Nikon vs. Canon debate. All cameras have their give and takes. My first Sony camera was a DSC-S50, a great little cyber-shot camera, and took whopping 2.1 megapixel pictures. Unfortunettly I dropped it one day and it would no longer focus.
I then moved up to 5 megapixels when I bought the Sony F717. I truly loved this camera, it was unique looking and got magnificent reviews across the board. This was the camera the got me truly interested in macro photography, and I think it did better then even the Sony Alphas I use now. I should have kept it in the stable.
One of the cameras I use currently is a Sony Alpha A550, my first DSLR with 14.2 megapixels. On the A550, I have my favorite lens attached to it permanetly, the Minolta AF500F80 Reflex telephoto lens, the only autofocus reflex lens on the market. With the doubler and CMOS sensor within the camera, the lens gets me the equivalent of 1500mm. Sony, why did you stop making this lens?
My newest toy is the Sony Alpha A65, at a huge 24.3 megapixels, which can take 10 frames per second. I have just added the Tamron 18-270 mm all-in-one lens, to save me from having to switch lenses due to the shot. This saves me from having to switch between the Sony SAL28-50, and the Sony SAL75-300 lenses I formally used.
Keep in mind, the photos you find on this site have been taken with all of these cameras. Thus the older the picture, the less options of prints from this site may be available. I you run up against this on any photos you would like larger, let me know, and I can see if I can make adjustments to the picture to meet your needs.
