Thank you Diane for your comment on "The Wreck of the Mary D. Hume." This boat has quite a history and I was trying to capture the mood of the story. Nature obliged me that morning by bringing in a wonderful fog as a backdrop. I appreciate your kind words.
Hey, do you like the D300 or the D700 better for portrait photography ? Have you looked at the D7000, though more compact with higher megapixels and awesome ISO ranges ? I'm debating about that vs one of the above two cameras you mentioned that you have. The 12 mp cameras are probably plenty, too and I love Nikon. Right now I have a Nikon D80 and want to upgrade. What would you recommend ? I want to do way more portrait/studio work, too and of course, weddings.
Thank you for inviting me to be your friend. Your portraits are wonderful. You have an eye for capturing the essence of your subjects. I noticed that you use a Canon AE1 for infrared work. I still have my AE1 that I bought in 1975. It was the best film camera I ever owned. Now it rests in my closet in retirement while I have embraced the digital world. I look forward to seeing many more of your beautiful photographs.
"Loco Plumbing" Many thanks Diane. I used to paint and draw a little but haven't put brush or pencil to canvas or paper for about twenty five years but I still see things in that way, just use a different medium.
'Red Wreck' Thank you for taking the time to look and comment Diane, it's much appreciated.
I have added some of my thoughts on the shot and how I came across the location in the image description if you care to take a look , it may answer some of the questions posed.
