Q - the genius
behind the camera

Focusing...
[200mm]
Q and Canon F1
Q is an excellent photographer and so I did not mind carrying her tripod. She is the only woman I know who carries rollfilm in her purse and considers a 2 1/4" camera a costume accessory. Lately, she has condescended to employing 35mm as well.
Sid, the punk rock camera Hi-res [135mm]
Michelle's favorite camera used to be Sid, a 1950s Mamiyaflex. Recently she added a 35mm Canon and a 6x4.5 Mamiya SLR to her arsenal.
[200mm]
Unlike the people whose photos show off expensive equipment and little sensitivity, Michelle's art comes straight from her heart and mind. Creating meaningful imagery is her first love, arguing about it is a close second.
Gotta have it!

Michelle has always put a great deal of effort into her photographs, even in the field. It seemed silly to go to that much trouble and still get an itsy-bitsy negative in the end.
My what pretty eyes you have Miss Photographer, Sir!
Big
negatives rule!
"Sure, good equipment helps. However, content is much more important."
Buy a camera rather than makeup, a handgun rather than trendy
clothes and spend time shooting rather than primping
"Oops, gotta run before the light changes."
