Equipment and Image Processing
Until 2012 pictures were for the most part taken using a Canon Powershot S5 digital camera equipped with a close-up lens (Canon, 500 D) together with a Sony x1.7 Tele Conversion lens.
Starting in 2012 most pictures were taken using a Sony Cybershot DSC-HX200V digital camera.
Starting in 2013, pictures were taken using a Canon Powershot SX50 HV digital camera.
Almost all pictures were taken using natural daylight and without artificial flash.
Most images are processed using Adobe Photoshop and Topaz DeNoise, Detail, and/or Adjust filters. Processing may include cropping, change in orientation, adjustments of the contrast and color balance, noise reduction, and/or sharpening. Except in rare cases, processing is applied to the whole picture rather than only to parts of it.
