Volcanic Rocks and Tree, Hawaii Film and Digital Format

Most of the pictures on this site are at least three or four years old. I started putting this site together in 2001, and many of the images are from 1999 to 2002. I shot with a Canon EOS-3 camera, a wonderful professional camera that I no longer use but still miss from time to time. I shot Fuji transparency film and scanned it professionally and with a Nikon film scanner.

In 2003, I began shooting with an Arca-Swiss large format camera (see a picture of it on one of my travel pages). Instead of one and a half square inches (1"x1.5"), large format film is twenty square inches (4"x5"). It captures an incredible amount of information, so I can make extreme enlargements that retain intricate detail. If you have ever seen a nature calendar and wondered how the photographer got such a detailed image, the answer is that the original was likely shot on medium format or large format film. Today, I shoot nearly all of my landscape and scenic images on 4x5 Fuji film.

In 2004, I bought a digital SLR, the Canon 20D, to replace my EOS-3. The 20D produces an image as good as my 35mm scans without requiring me to change rolls, or develop or scan the film. I use the 20D for my family photos, wildlife, travel, and generally whenever the large format camera would be too cumbersome or difficult to use.
