Site Technicalities

Camera

  Initially, and up to December 2001 the photographs were taken with a Kodak DC280 after which a disastrous Minolta Dimage 7 was used. A Canon EOS300D came on the scene in December 2005 and was replaced by a Canon 5D MkII in January 2009.

Software

Virtually all pictures are now taken in "Raw" setting and are processed by either Canon's dedicated software or Photoshop CS5 when I can understand it. 

Hardware

PC is a purpose built machine operating on Windows 7 (64 bit) with a hefty set of innards which include a whacking 1.3TB of hard drive storage. The screen is a Dell SP2309W, which has much better definition and brilliance. Older images will now appear lighter by comparison because the CRT screen had lost its brilliance and was over compensating. 

Compilation

 The site is constructed using Adobe Pagemill, a long defunct and much missed piece of software. My particular copy was supplied free with a software bundle included with an Epson GT7000 scanner.

Hosting

The site is hosted by ImageLinkUSA, a personable organisation apparently established by photographers, frustrated by what was available at the time, to display their works.
