Welcome to

Hello, and welcome to

This is my little corner of the internet world where I discuss, theorize, research, and otherwise pontificate about photography and image making.

PhotonSmith defined (sourced from

Smith: maker — often used in combination <gunsmith> <tunesmith>

Photon: a unit of intensity of light at the retina equal to the illumination received per square millimeter of a pupillary area from a surface having a brightness of one candle per square meter

While literally it means maker of light, I prefer to think of it as maker of things from light.

So, I say: Welcome and feel free to join me in a journey through the use of light.
