What I use


What I use

I use Canon photo and printing equipment.
After my first Canon 20D and then a 30D and 40D, I have got
Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera,
which I'm absolutely happy with. I admire to work with this camera. It
delivers excellent image quality and fitures.
With Mark II I use mostly the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens.
For wildlife “photo hunting” I carry with me pretty heavy, but very good Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM Lens ,
one of the most popular serious wildlife and sports lenses Canon sells.
For macro photography, plants, insects and especially my still life I use Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L IS USM Macro Lens.
Also, I could not be any happier with the results of my Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0 L IS USM lens.
There are MANY uses for this lens, but portrait photography is one of the best. The IS and the bokeh are to die for.

In my mixed media pictures and design I use taken by ME photographs or parts of them and my hand drawing.
I draw with my
WACOM Intuos 4 professional pen tablet.
It is still a pen and I still use my talent and hands to draw, but everything I draw goes and shows up straight on my monitor screen.
I put all things together working in various photo editing software.
 
I print on 24-inch
Canon imagePROGRAF iPF6300 I achieve superior quality, durable and long lasting prints with this excellent printer.
The larger size of a print is 24' by a shorter size and infinity in lenth, as long as the paper lenth allows me to print.
I use big 100 feet long ralls of canvas and paper for the printer.
This is an exellent optimal size for printing long-long panoramas and large comercial posters.
Here is a snapshot of the iPF6300 in one of my workshop
rooms.
In my mating and framing workshop I use Morso Chopper Frame Molding Cutter,
Mitre-Mite VN 2+1 / Minigraf frame assembly machine

Fletcher 3100 mat/glass cutter,
Fletcher 2200 Professional Mat Cutting System,
and Fletcher 1100 Professional Oval and Circle Cutting System.
I’m very satisfied with Fletcher equipment, which gives professional looking neat result and makes my work process more pleasant, easy, and faster.
You may see photos about my printing and framing worshop in this album.
