Who I am and my goals for this website
I am an architect, amateur photographer and the author of the book, BOSTON Architecture and Landmarks. This website is primarily devoted to my interest in photography and video though I have include a few pages related to my architectural background, You can access these pages by clicking on my picture above.
While a long time photography enthusiast I have more recently devote a lot of interest to digital photography and video using a video capable DSLR camera, or more specifically an rather entry level Canon T2i. Learning how to use the camera has prompted me to study the subject of videography and other people's experience using a DSLR camera for video. Gradually I have formed my own preferences for using equipment and making videos. My conclusions are similar to those of many others, but also differ in certain respects. The purpose of this site is to share some of my own subjective findings with anyone interested in the same subject. My belief is that many different takes on the same subject adds to one's understanding and therefore is well justified.
By clicking on the icons to the left you can access my videos. I will add videos to my selection as soon as I have completed new ones. My intention is to present ideas and advice on shooting videos geared to the photo enthusiast as opposed to the professional videographer, since I am an amateur of video making myself and particularly with respect to DSLR video. In short, I will give you my personal take on things. Still I believe that at least some of my advice will be universally applicable. I will emphasize simple and low-cost solution whenever I consider these satisfactory for achieving reasonable good results. My videos, as well as other pages of the site, can be accesses by clicking on the icons. I have also added links to sites, which I have found to be of interest both for learning to make better photos and videos from real experts and for learning about new equipment, particularly cameras and lenses.
