I have a friend who worked at his studio in Carmel and is a fine photographer now, Sook Chu Kim. And other friends who hold him as part of their loving Yosemite - not solely, of course, but tied to it.

I'm personally less attached re Ansel Adams, but interested.

Heh, you should visit the "radio thread" and could see him on a daily basis there :wink:

It's true. I've been a regular captive of Letty's site wa2k radio. Walter would know as many afficianados drop by on a regular basis. Letty herself is a delight and an avid hostess cupcake.

As regards photography, I own Nikons, Pentax, Yahica twin len reflex. I have used a 4x5 view camera. I worked for thirty years in camera stores managing two of them. Most of my photograhy now is limited to my avocation of catching and banding migrating hawks for U. S. Fish and wildlife.

That might be of some interest for you, Bob, but for others as well:

since about four weeks, I use a digital angle viewer, called zigview with my Nikon F 80, especially for macros and flower photos - just GREAT and really worth the money!

Walter, Thanks for the tip on the Zigview, which I just studied at its website--and, of course, immediately wanted to own! When I finally wore out my first serious camera, an M3 Leica, I switched to Hasselblad for film and a Nikon SLR for digital. The 'Blad can take excellent pictures of flora, BUT bracketing exposures gets VERY expensive. Consequently, I use that camera mostly for portraits of people. The Nikon has image quality and color rendition beyond my expectations, but whenever I get deeply into photographing flowers in our wet climate, I'll next be changing all my clothes! The Zigview looks like a great solution. Now, I'll need to track it down in the States. Thanks again.

Everyone - including the personal in my photshop - wants to have it, it seems Laughing

Well, it's really great ... and they even have a (although until now only on the web) German description).


Glad, if this was a good tip :wink:

Has anyone mentioned Lucien Clergue? He impresses me a lot.

alot of photographers I like were listed by timberlandko but a few others I like are william klein , phillip-lorca diCorcia , Martin Parr and william eggleston.
I like parrs somewhat satrical approach to the subjects he photographs, and the way he manages to empasize the colours and the saturation used.

@Munchkinbabes,
William Eggleston, Sally Mann, William Wegman, Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams, Walker Evans,Robert Mapplethorpe, Michal Rovner....

I can't remember the artist's name... he builds up film location like sets just to photograph them. He always stages and choreographs the people in his photography. The photos have some incredible production values.

Great for creating moody deeply disturbing Hopperesque modern scenes of melancholy.
