Landscape, Travel, Aircraft and Automotive Photography




Welcome to Twilightphoto.com.

This website contains a collection of some of my best photographs taken over the last few years with digital cameras.

Photography has been one of my favorite hobbies since I took a photography class and helped out on the yearbook staff in junior high school. A key factor in retaining what I had learned was the Canon FTb, fully manual 35mm film camera that my dad gave to me back in high school. This camera is very simple and intuitive to use and really helped me to understand the relationship between aperture and shutter speed and the different effects each setting has on the final picture. During the mid 90's, with the help of online lens reviews, I built up a small collection of high quality Canon FD manual focus lenses. One lens in particular, the Canon FDn 135mm f2.0, created images so vivid, clear and colorful, that it seemed it was impossible to take a bad picture with it. The subject sharpness and soft background blur made the pictures seem truly three dimensional. This is when I realized just how much of an affect a superior quality lens could have on the final outcome. Growing up with the FTb and discovering the Canon 135mm f2.0 has made me a Canon fan for life.

For the longest time, I was convinced that film would always be superior to digital photography. But in early 2008, I finally retired my Canon film gear and bought my first digital SLR...a Canon 40D. I was immediately hooked with the quality of the camera and lenses, the programming capability and the range of options to fine tune each picture during post processing. I really feel that if I hadn't grown up with the Canon FTb, I wouldn't understand about 80% of the 40D's features.

My newest passion is panoramic landscape photography and this is where digital photography really shines. Being able to capture an entire vista the way our eyes see it in real life used to require a special panoramic film camera. Now, it can be done by taking a series of digital pictures and blending them together with relatively inexpensive software. Wide digital panoramas can also be viewed on newer widescreen computer monitors and televisions with great detail.

I hope you enjoy my photographs as much as I enjoyed taking them. They are best viewed by picking the "Slideshow" button towards the upper right of each gallery page. To navigate back to the main page after viewing a gallery, use the "Home" button towards the upper left of the page.

OK, the galleries must be the small photos with captions, as they do have titles availalble on upper right.

I frequently don't realize you have to scroll down on websites and it took awhile to discover them. People are constantly confused by my website, even though it is covered with instructions to scroll down. You might get more visits, or at least longer ones, if you have some hint how to find the galleries. Perhaps having them near the top and having your autobiographical material further down (perhaps with an instruction to scroll down) would be helpful. Just in case there are some people out there who are as dumb as I am!
