I’ve been shooting the same way for 40 years. Whatever catches my eye: That’s what I try to capture and convey. My goal is to display images that anyone else could have seen as well, if they’d been in the same time and place. That means I rarely use flash, time exposure, Photoshop, models, or even a tripod.
My subjects: Patterns in nature, or in architecture, abstracts, strong colors, strong contrasts, strong lighting. I tend to compose with a few selected dominant elements and crop out anything extraneous. I compose full-frame and almost never crop images afterward.
My gear has of course changed over the years. For my Kodachrome decades, it was a Konica SLR, then a Canon. Now I shoot mostly with a Nikon D40 (easy to carry), or a steady string of point-and-shoot digitals.
