Black and White
I like to take photos! This is a gallery
of the pictures I've taken and liked enough to scan in. To get
started, just click on one of the categories at the left.
If you click the category name, then
you'll see only the pictures that live primarily in that category. If
you click the word 'total' under each category name then you'll see
any pictures that are related to that category, even if that's not
their primary category. Aside each one is a count of how many pictures
will be on the page.
If you're in a hurry, just browse the
pictures in the favorites
category, which is a collection of what I think are my best photos.
Now, for a little information: First of
all, I'm obsessed with shallow depth-of-field and macro photography,
so you'll see a lot of that. I mostly like abstract photos. I used to
use a Canon Elan II body with a mediocre 35–70mm zoom lens and
experiment with a variety of films. Now I have a Canon D60, which is a
digital SLR, so I can take loads of pictures without paying or waiting
for processing. I've mostly replaced my mediocre zoom with a pretty nice
macro lens, since I like to shoot the miniature world, anyway.
Also, I think the insistence that black
and white photography is more "artistic" is nonsense; though black and
white is easier to develop and print in a home lab, it's very rare
that I prefer it to color. There are some black and white photos here
from photography classes that I've taken, though.
Finally, go ahead and use these photos in
your commercial design work, as desktop wallpaper, or whatever. Just
never sell them, or pretend that you took them! Contact me
if you have special circumstances.
If you'd like to see everyday pictures
from events and trips, I also have another collection of personal
photos called picture pages
