The original dg28.com - photographers education
Between January 2000 and June 2008 I posted a large number of technique examples taken from my daily work to show how I used light in an era where digital cameras were pretty poor at ISOs over 800 or even 400 in the case of the venerable Kodak DCS520. These days flash is a creative choice rather than a technical necessity but the techniques still stand up - even if one or two of the concepts are looking a little dated!.
When I first discovered the internet I was keen to show the world my photographs. I'd been working professionally for many years by then and I had a lot of work to show. My first website was published using free webspace provided by AoL and that quickly morphed into the original dg28 pages. Before too long I started posting a series of "how I did it" technique pages which grew into a collection of fifty examples, mostly concerned with portable lighting and its use with digital SLRs.
Those pages attracted thousands of visitors and I still meet photographers who tell me just how much they were influenced by some of those examples. These days I have a blog where I post a wide selection of stuff about my work and the industry which I still love.
Here you can find the original pages...
