I’ve had a camera in my hand now for approximately 54 years. Would never dream about going out anywhere, without taking at least one with me.
The best camera is the one you have with you.
Love using a mobile phone for photography.
Current equipment is a Canon 1ds Mark III, and a Canon 28 – 80mm f3.5 L lens.
I do occasionally shoot and process in colour, but my greatest love has always been monochrome.
