David Graves

David picked up his 1.3MP Hewlett-Packard digicam one day in 2006 when he was having a musical block. He went to the local graveyard and took some pictures. He played around with them until he kind of liked them. Later that year he picked up a used Olympus 2020z and an infrared filter. In 2007 he decided to buy one those cameras with changeable lenses because he was going to travel the country for a month or so and wanted something better than a point-and-shoot. His mom shot Canon, so he went the Canon route, too. Got himself a nifty 50 and a Rebel XT. In 2008, David decided he really liked infrared photography and bought a Fuji IS-1. He didn't like how it handled noise. In this time he upgraded his XT to an XSi. He still saw no need for anything but a Rebel. After making a second tour of America, he decided to sell the Fuji and get the XSi converted to infrared. For most of 2009 he only shot infrared, in order to really understand how to best process it.

He now shoots with a used 50D with a shutter problem and his trusty infrared XSi. His photographic interests are wide. He has equal affinity for street scenes and landscapes, portraits and abstracts.
