I use a D-300 now, mainly with a 70-200 2.8 VR lens, but I'm also fascinated with detail and shoot with a 60 mm macro a lot. I'm interested the natural world and with patterns, scales of size, parallels in "nature" and architecture as well as simply "seeing" objects from unusual perspectives, and from sequences or passage of time. I grew up near water so have a strong attraction to the aquatic world- my "day" job takes me on the water quite often. I'm drawn to the subtle ways light acts on water and animals and plants in and on water. I sail when I can too, so my hydrophilic tendency gets some real emersion that way! Currently I'm working on thematic comparisons of "natural" objects and "plastics" as a kind of homage to what used to be a "greener" connection to the world and how we interacted with our environments using truly recyclable materials- and a reminder that other animal species are able to make "functional" equivalents to our synthetic products. You may recall the line from The Graduate (1967) where Benjamin (Dustin Hoffman) is given the sage advice that the future lies in one word: Plastics!- But actually that line was stolen from a much earlier (now seasonal) classic: "It's a Wonderful Life" (1946).
