In one of the funniest blog posts I’ve ever read, the issue is raised about asking photographers about their equipment. It really can be annoying, but the truth is that a large percentage of the photgraphy audience is other photographers – and a large percentage of photographers are nerds. So, lemme get it over with:
I don’t do a ton of lighting, but sometimes have to add some strobe (inexpensive White Lightning monolights) or hotlights (Lowel).
As for printing, I still have a conventional color darkroom with a Kreonite processor. I use this for proofs or small prints. For Sleeping by the Mississippi, I made traditional optical C-Prints at a lab in Minneapolis. For NIAGARA, I made digital C-Prints (both Lightjet and Lambda) at Laumont in New York.Whew. I hope that answers the dreaded question once and for all.One more thing. In case you want to know what computer I’m typing this blog on, it is an old 12 inch ibook:
