Cameras

 

Most of the photographs on this website were taken with a Canon Digital Rebel XT, XSi or T3i DSLR, using a Canon 35 mm, 50 mm, 17-40 mm or 24-70 mm lens. Some photographs were taken with a Canon Powershot A80 or A620, two point and shoots with manual controls.

 

Image Ratios

 

Photographs on this website have aspect ratios of 2:3 or 4:5. An image with an aspect ratio of 2:3 would usually be printed at 4x6 inches or, if the image warranted it, at 12x18. An image with an aspect ratio of 4:5 would usually be printed at 4x5 or 8x10 inches. The Digital Rebel has a native aspect ratio of 2:3, while the Powershot cameras have a native aspect ratio close to 4:5.

 

Software Tools

 

Newer DSLR photographs on this website were shot in RAW format, manipulated in RAW conversion software (Rawshooter, Canon Digital Photo Professional or Adobe Camera RAW), and then further adjusted in Adobe Photoshop. Earlier DSLR photographs were shot in JPEG and manipulated with Google's old freeware image editor, Picasa. 

 

Most images were adjusted in Photoshop to lighten, darken or sharpen them. Black and white images were converted using Photoshop or dedicated conversion software (B/W Styler, Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 or Topaz BW Effects).
