Color Photography

When I got my first camera, back around 1978, I started developing color transparencies. Then I started shooting black and white and developing and printing my own negatives and prints. I owe Ansel Adams a debt of gratitude for all of the books he wrote which taught me how to shoot black and white photographs the way they should be. At the time, color photography wasn't great. The images were flat and empty. For me, that changed with the release of Fuji Velvia film (IS0) 50. Kodak answered a few years later with their Ektachrome 100VS (ISO 100). I liked the extra stop with the 100 speed film. I bought it by the cases when I was shooting with Nikon F5. Both films yield excellent saturation and vibrance. I now have, literally, thousands and thousands of slides.

Here are some of the photographs I have taken over the years with a number of different cameras. I hope you enjoy them. If you do, please drop me a line and let me know at Jay(remove this)@JayMc.com.

Featured Photograph

Delicate Arch - Arches National Park, Utah 2003
Camera: Toyo 4x5 View Camera     Lens: Rodenstock 150mm     Film: Kodak Ektachrome 100VS 

It was a chore hiking the mile and a half to Delicate Arch with fifty pounds of camera equipment and a ten pound tripod but I believe the effort truly paid off with this photograph. At first, it looked like it was going to be too cloudy to get a very good image of this wonderfully unique geological feature but just before the sun set, it popped out under the clouds and it was as if God turned on a bright orange light! This was one of those truly magical moments in photography!
