My earlier website created in 2005 which I kept kept current until 2012, when I switched to Zenfolio and alexoldfieldphotography.com. Looking back at some of my earlier photographs allows me to relive journeys taken in the past, and the beauty I encountered. Macro photography for instance with a Minolta Dimage A1, point and shoot with a macro feature. I have not found it easy to reproduce these results with either of my subsequent cameras, a Nikon D80 with a 60mm macro lens, nor with my current camera a Panasonic GH2. I traded in the Minolta because I didn't like the imprecision of the manual focus, and now wish I had kept it for this very function. Time moves on, you switch from taking just Jpegs to taking RAW, and the increased functionality of better cameras and software. When I think of it, I got sharper photos with my old Nikon F, with its f2 50mm lens... but I'm not going back to film! See Bruce Peninsular and Wild Flowers in Ajax for examples of my macro work.
