I combine low-tech optics, such as toy cameras and pinhole cameras, with modern technology. Low-tech cameras do not always work, the exposures can be wildly different, and you never can be certain your main subject is even in focus. Even with all of these shortcomings, I genuinely like the challenge they present when shooting, and the potential rewards visible after chemical processing. While I do enjoy my brief escapes from technology when taking the image, in the production of the photograph as an object, I rely heavily on modern technology. As new forms of photographic expression are created, aided by the rapid progression of technology, I endeavor to continue exploring my environment using the methods of a 21st Century Photographer.
