    I am an enthusiastic amateur photographer. I have digital cameras, but I really love vintage cameras. From oldest to newest (by date made) I currently own the following:

    Voigtlander Bessa (1930s)
    Kodak Brownie Reflex (1940s)
    Kodak Brownie Duaflex IV (1950s)
    Voigtlander Perkeo 2 (early 1950s)
    Mamiya Six-IV with Olympus Zuiko lens (early 1950s)
    Kodak Brownie Hawkeye (1960s)
    Voigtlander Vitomatic IIa (early 1960s) with Color-Skopar lens f2.8
    Flexaret VI (early to mid 1960s)
    Voigtlander Vitomatic IIIb (mid 1960s) with Ultron lens f2
    Canon F-1 (1973, belonged to my grandfather)
    Nikkormat FT3 (1979)
    Olympus OM-1n (late 1970s, I have 2 of these)
    Toy 35mm camera (probably 1990s)
    Canon Elph
    Canon Rebel SL-1
    iPhone 7
    Olympus OM-D EM10 Mark II

    I'm also fond of Lensbaby and have a composer pro, circular fisheye, and the LM-10 for my iPhone.

    As for genre, I like macro photography, especially abstract macros. I also like general nature photography, and lately, I've been doing some studies to test the capabilities of "new" vintage equipment. People photography is my worst subject, I just don't get people.

    I'd love to learn more about composition, exposure, and start learning post-processing techniques.

    And finally, I love the abstract/impressionist look of pinhole photography. I've made a pinhole "lens" for my Olympus OM-1n bodies (primarily for use on the body that doesn't have the most accurate shutter speeds) and am currently experimenting and learning.

    In my spare time I'm writing my doctoral dissertation and work full time, and I'm also an avid and accomplished knitter. I have two boy cats who frequently find themselves at the end of one camera or another.


    I work to support my vintage camera habit.
