These photos are taken with a Nikon D50, D70 (IR Modified), D300, D700, P7000 and an assortment of lenses.
I developed an interest in photograpy as a kid with an old Kodak Instamatic 110 camera. Later, I won some money in some sort of prize drawing. I saved some additional money and was able to purchase a Yashica TL Electro (M42 screw mount with a F1.9 normal lens).
Got into dark room stuff in high school but kinda dropped out after getting into college. After working for a few years I decided to upgrade to a Nikon 4004. Used this for a few years but never really got as interested as in high school - no access to dark room and not enough time. Started getting interested again when the digital cameras started coming out. Got a point and shoot Casio 3.1 MP which was adequate for the time but failed after a year or so. Was debating whether to get a DSLR or another point and shoot - considered Canon DSLR and the Nikon 5700 advanced point & shoot. Didn't like the feel of the (relatively) inexpensive Canon and figured the Nikon would last me for a while. After initially really liking the Nikon, I got frustrated with its confusing menu system and its lack of responsiveness when shooting.
When the Nikon D50 came out, I thought that I would see what it was like. It felt great in my hands and within a few weeks of trying one I broke down and bought one. I've upgraded several times and no longer have the D50. I'm primarily using the the D700 with a D300 usually in reserve. For snapshots I now use a P7000 and the D70 does the occaisional IR landscape shot. The digital darkroom and the DSLRs give me the control over my photography that I had not had since my high school darkroom days. Also, digtal gives me flexibility that was impossible in the film days.
