Hi, I’m Khürt L. Williams. I write about technology on Island in the Net, but post random thoughts on Khürt/blog. I am active on Twitter and Google+. I am active in the Princeton area’s social media community and currently serve as President of the Princeton Macintosh Users’ Group. I am passionate about funding research to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes. You can sometimes find me sitting with my iPad drinking coffee in one of Princeton’s cafés.
Bio: My background includes multimedia research and development, IT security, and consulting. I’ve worked for many firms, large and small. I began computing on a Commodore VIC20. In addition to “toy computers” I have worked with many systems from the mid 80s on: PCs, Macs, and the major UNIX players. Along the way I’ve been a Web Developer, Web Master, Technical Lead, Project Manager, Service Delivery Manger and Systems Security Manager.
In case you haven’t figured this out from looking at my photograph’s I am not a professional photographer. I’m just a guy with a camera who loves capturing moments of light.
My photography kit includes the following:
I use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom to import and manage my image catalog. For HDR images, I use Photomatix Pro by HDRsoft and HDR Efex Pro. I prefer shooting with prime lenses. My 35mm and 50mm are the lenses I use most of the time except when shooting landscapes. I originally had plans to to buy more lenses including the Nikkor AF-S 85mm f/1.4G, and Nikkor AF-S Micro 40mm f/2.8G DX. However, after a conversation I had with a friend while on a photo-walk, I think it might be prudent to save my money for a new camera body with a full frame sensor — perhaps the Nikon D600. I would sell all my lenses and purchase just two lenses — the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED and the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II.
