Hardware and Software

Before October 2004 I used a Nikon N70 35mm film camera and made photographs with colour negative film. The images in "Bangkok-Wats" and "Vientiane" were made with a Minolta Scan Elite 5400 scanner and processed using SilverFast 6.6 Ai Studio. I now use a Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 ED scanner with SilverFast 8 Ai Studio to produce high resolution digital image files.

Since October 2004 I used a Canon 1Ds digital camera, but up-graded to a Canon 1Ds MkIII in November 2007. I capture in raw mode and now process the images in Lightroom 4.2 and Photoshop CS5, aided by plug-ins such as PK Sharpener Pro 2, Nik Silver Efex 2 and Nik Viveza 2. I also use Lightroom's Greyscale panel and CS5's B&W Adjustment Layer for B&W conversions.

I also use a Phase One 645DF camera with Phase One P40+ digital back and Phase One lenses 45mm and 75mm ~ 150mm zoom.

Over the past year and a bit I've been using the Sony NEX - at first the 5n, then upgraded to the Nex 6, with three Sony E-Mount zoom lenses from super wide angle to telephoto.

I print my photographs on Ilford Gold Fibre Silk paper in an Epson 4900 printer using the Epson Ultrachrome HDR inkset. The galleries are produced in Lightroom.
