Well you definitely have your own unique POV. And thats a good thing. I enjoy your photos, even the kinky ones

I have never felt the need to collect multiple lenses and cameras, in fact I have pretty much settled on 1 camera and 3 lenses, although I have more, which suit my specific purposes and needs quite well. Which is to"keep it simple and travel light"

My photography is about "place" in the moment of taking the photo. The 1st thought of it, the preparation of it. Usually I'm in a fantastic place w a super subject. Then the anticipation of the outcome and the preparation of the photo. Then I'm done w it, thinking and traveling to my next one.
Like I said usually I'm in a breathtaking place

3 lenses is enough depending on what you do. Many of my old film cameras have just the one attached. It's always what you do with it that matters.
Although I do actually have lots of lenses, I've bought them over 5 decades and like you, I would rarely take more than 2 or three out at a time.

Um BTW, my wife says I'm not allowed to shoot any more 'kinky photos'..............unless she's in them.

I guess it's not really true that I'm not a gear freak: I'm just not a 'new gear' freak. Unless it's 'different' in some way. I have just blown NZ$500+ on a used 100mm but it's an STF and I'll be using it for all sorts of less usual subjects.

One of the things I really enjoy doing is to shoot with a low definition camera/lens and try to make it surprisingly good. Say like using microfilm in a 16mm camera.

It can surprise people when they see some of those like the shot below. That's off a 10x14mm negative.

Hmm... nice try, but in #1 the field of view between the foreground and background doesn't really fit together in this composite

thanks for the visit and comment.
the photo may seem very artificial, the fault of aggressive treatment,mainly the elimination of noise and the use of various masks to have a 3d ( ) effect of the main subject .

just out of curiosity, final for the broshure


best regards

The main problem of this composition still persists in the new version: field of view between foreground and background doesn't match. You might want to consider to clone out the two boats (above the table)

Nice shot Fred: I love morning light. The stillness of it and the slight mist makes the best of these landscapes
