About Eric

Eric at Meteor CraterI've been doing unusual photography since the late '70s when I used high contrast lithography film developed in my basement dark room to make masks for image compositing.  Through the years, I've fixed and built my own equipment, including an automatic panoramic camera to try to record the 360° sunset during a total solar eclipse in Africa.

I've been shooting multiple images to stitch together as panoramas for over 10 years, and am currently writing my own software to improve the stitching of high dynamic range panoramas.  I know my cameras, lenses, and equipment inside out, having disassembled and modified bits of it for my own uses.

While my left brain is busy keeping track of all of the technical issues that crop up in photography, my right brain can concentrate on finding just the right angle and instant to capture the perfect image.  I like playing with textures and perspective, and try to give my images a unique feel.  I like opening up to show the grandure of a landscape, or focusing on a tiny detail.

At events, I can blend into the background and capture candids of people who would if they saw me become self conscious and break the natural moment.
