Equipment & Technical
I really don't think that the specific equipment used in fine art photography is that critical, however it is a tool and must perform well. For those interested I use a Nikon D3X 24.5 Megapixel Digital SLR for most of my work. The images from Coney Island, India, Russia, and China are 35mm and for this work, I used a Nikon D5 and Kodak Royal Gold 100 and Fuji Velvia.
For medium format I use a Mamiya RZ-67 with a full range of lenses.
For larger format projects, I use a Horseman 45FA 4x5, a Sinar P2 4x5, a Sinar P2 8x10 and a Toyo M 8x10 field camera. I use a Linhof Aero Technika for 4x5 aerial work.
I hand print all of my black and white images. For this work I use an Omega D5 enlarger with a an Illford Multigrade head, a Durst 138S 5x7 and a Fotar 10x10 Horizontal enlarger for large format negatives.
I use Photo Shop for processing digital scans and am doing increasing amount of digital work.
I use Miller Professional Imaging for printing digitally mastered negatives and transparencies which are then printed on a laser printer. I am finding I can make prints up to 48" x 60" from 35mm negatives while maintaining tremendous clarity and definition.
