In this site are just a few of the pictures I like the most or came out the best. Note that my favorite pictures are not necessarily the "best" photo's. Photography is very subjective -  a "best" picture in one person's eyes is not always the "best" in someone else's eyes.

Pictures that were taken on slide film are scanned with my Minolta Scan Dual II film scanner using the AdobeRGB color profile, then converted to sRGB for the web. I didn't make any major exposure corrections, just enough to match the screen image to the slide as much as possible. It's not easy to have pictures come out the same on your screen as they do on a slide. Monitors and film simply do not have the same color palette so the pictures will never look exact, but we can come close. Also, all the pictures you see are "as is". I have not made composites or "cloned" out backgrounds. The Black and White pictures were done using B/W film.

If the pictures look too dark or too light you can use this simple calibration image provided below. It's not designed to be the final say in monitor calibration, but it'll get you within a reasonable range. You can click the image to see the larger one. Read below on how to use it. Remember that your monitor should be "warmed up" before you calibrate it - don't calibrate the monitor just after turning it on. Wait at least 15 minutes.

  1. Turn the monitor's contrast control all the way up.
  2. Adjust the brightness control until you can just differentiate the dark squares (marked 0,1,2).
  3. If necessary, adjust the contrast control to just differentiate the light squares (marked 0,1,2).
