A few of my photographs...
If I'm out in the mountains, at a gig or on one of my adventures I always carry a camera with me. Below are just a few of the images I have captured over the years.
The D70 maybe a little dated now, but it remains a backup camera of choice for many a professional. Solid build quality and full manual controls allow a limitless scope for what can be achieved with this camera.
No camera is complete without good optics - after all it's the lens that is collecting the 'light.' This 18-70mm lens gives a wonderfully wide shot with a good amount of zoom to get closer when required.
The standard built-in flash doesn't really "cut the mustard" where flash photography is required. The Speedlight SB-600 has a high level of adjustability and remote firing which can produce some dramatic results.
A polarizing filter is a great addition, especially for landscape photography. Giving more definition to skies and revealing the true blue, or removing the glare from a reflective surface, a polarizer is great for adding more definition to your images.
The Lumix LX3 is my camera of choice when out and about in the mountains. Compact and light, yet it has full manual control, a wonderfully wide F2 Leica lens and the ability to shoot in RAW format. This is about as close to carrying a full DSLR you can get at a quarter of the size and weight.
It's getting on a bit now but the incredibly compact Ixus 70 is great for strapping to my harness when climbing. The thought of dropping or bashing an expensive camera when climbing isn't worth thinking about. I also use this camera for shooting live bands. It has some great manual controls which help capture some great images.
If I'm shooting in RAW format, then Photoshop is my tool of choice for processing the images. A world of adjustments are at my fingertips; these can help rescue a miss-exposed image and draw out the image as it had been photographed.
I'm relatively new to Aperture, but I've found it a great tool for sorting images and making quick adjustments.
