I enjoy capturing the combination of simplicity and complexity that is found in nature. Color consistency plays a large part in the success of my images.

I use an Einstein™ E640 Flash Unit, controlled by a Cyber Commander™, with the 47” Octabox.  The color mode of the Einstein™ is always used as it ensures that there is little variability in color temperature among the images within a stack.

I utilize a Fuji GFX50s attached to a Arca-Swiss Universalis II View Camera and a Schneider-Kreuznach 120mm/5.6 Apo-Macro digitar. The view camera is set on a Stackshot focus stacking rail, the number of images per stack is dictated by the magnification on sensor and the depth of focus I desire.
