Q. What process do you use to enhance or treat your images?
A. This super difficult to share in a sentence or two. I have studied photography for over 50 years and made it my life's mission to be better than anyone else. You have to start with the basics and really understand lighting and exposure, and learn to push those boundaries first. There is no quick and easy way that I'm aware of..
Q. What type of camera do you use?
A. This might surprise the heck out of you, I use mostly Sony gear, as a few of the older MINOLTA lenses fit and work very nicely. My go to for flowers is my Sony A-77, it serves me well and takes really nice photos. I went about 10 years without buying a new camera, telling myself "keep it real and inexpensive" this last year we acquired SONY A7 III, and we sure love it!
