I guess every blog needs a first post, so here we go. My name is Larry Gebhardt and I’m an avid, but amateur photographer. By trade I’m a software developer. This blog will contain a mix of things that interest me, mostly related to photography.
I work with both digital and film cameras. These range from cell phones, digital point and shoots, and high end digital SLRs and from toy film cameras up to 5×7 large format sheet film cameras. I also print both in the darkroom and by scanning and inkjet printing. I spend way to much time experimenting with equipment and processes and not enough time getting out and taking pictures. I’m hoping to write a bit on how I plan to pare down my overly broad collection of cameras. Maybe writing that here will force it to happen quicker.
I mainly consider myself a photographer of things. I like landscapes, cityscapes, macro, wildlife and nature photography. I also like street and portrait photos a lot too, but I don’t feel as comfortable shooting in those styles. I guess that’s a side effect to being inclined towards introversion.
I tend to ramble, so that’s probably enough for now.
