Time to get this Blog out of hibernation

At Aero Gatineau~Ottawa we had a pair of Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IX do a formation flypast, this is an animation I created from a 18 frame burst. My dSLR can do 8.3 frames per second.

I am a self confessed techno-geek. While rooted in traditional analog photography, I have embraced the new technologies in photography. I am just as comfortable under the dark cloth of a large-format view camera, as I am with a digital camera. I can produce award winning photographs within the darkroom, or from a digital-desktop. With over 40 years of photography as a both hobby, and over 35 years within the professional arena I have always produced the highest quality product. I am self-taught in the digital media, I have been a PhotoShop user since 1995 (version 2.5) I found the transition fairly seamless due to my long experience in labs. I have been an Internet addict since early 1992. The digital imaging field I feel has opened up more flexibility in the final work, as art, photography and graphic design can all meet. I have worked within various Government photo units, as well as various professional labs. I can easily converse with a police forensic photographer as I can with a wedding sports or commercial photographer. I have worked for several of Ottawa’s top photographers. I have worked at several pro labs. As well as many years in photo retail. In 2007, the Camera Club of Ottawa honoured me by granting me Life Membership within the club. This was to honour all that I have done and still do for the Camera Club of Ottawa. I feel it has been my second home since 1970. Enjoy my website, and my images.
