Most of the years I've been taking photographs, I've used Pentax film and digital cameras. In 2006 I've switched to Nikon due to higher reliability of the equipment. All exhibited photographs were taken by Pentax ME Super, Pentax MZ-5n, Pentax *istD, Nikon D200 and Nikon D700 cameras. Pentax 16-45mm, Nikon 12-24mm, Nikon 17-35mm wide angle lens, Pentax 80-210mm, Pentax 80-320mm, Sigma 50-500, Nikon 70-200VR and Nikon 80-200 telephoto lenses were used. Polarizing filter was used heavily together with UV filters mounted on the optics serving as a protection for the lenses.

Digital darkroom

All digital photos taken in RAW format, (Adobe RGB color space was used) were processed with a RAW converter into 16bit tiff files. Velvia slides from older film cameras were scanned on one of few Heidelberg drum scanners in Norway (the highest quality drum scanner on the market). Noise reduction, levels and/or curves were applied, saturation was increased/reduced a little bit sometimes.
The working size of one TIFF file, including adjustment curves and hue/saturation layers, is about 170MB.
The photos were printed on 8 inks Epson 3800 professional printer on archival Innova FibaPrint White Semi-Matte 300gsm paper, which is one of the highest-quality fine-art photographic papers today. In connection with Epson UltraChrome K3 inks it exhibits superior sharpness and color, and is expected to last over 100 years on display before noticeable fading occurs. Before printing, the images were custom sharpened for Epson 3800 printer. Cotton gloves were used while handling the prints not to leave any fingerprints or scratches.
