ABOUT Ronald J. Saunders
Photography is not a business for me and has never seemed
like work. My first camera as a boy was a Kodak Brownie.
This instrument never brought any satisfaction as I cannot
remember having any picture that was in focus. I wonder
if they were all that way? My father gave me his Kodak Retina
which did focus and eventually provided the satisfaction
of taking a great picture. Later, a Canon A1 and eventually
my Mamiya 645 would further add to the improvement of my
work. They also seemed to focus well.
I have owned several digital cameras in the last few years
and currently shoot with a Nikon D200 and a Nikon D300. My FujiFilm S2-Pro SLR has been retired from my camera bag but given to a friend. A lot of
the images exhibited here were taken with this camera or
my earlier S1-Pro. Digital cameras are here to stay and
rival images taken with film cameras. I have previously preferred a CCD camera
but I am convinced that the CMOS sensor has finally come of age.
The proper equipment is essential. In addition to a great
camera, the quality of the lens is equally important. A
cheap lens just doesn't provide the satisfaction of a high
quality product. I no longer need to waste time struggling to make
Brownie quality components work.
