Studio in the Field
The images found within the galleries of this collection were taken, as the name suggests, in the field. Mark painstakingly composes his shots as to not disturb his subjects in their natural environment. Over the course of the last two decades, Mark has modified equipment and developed techniques that allow him to manipulate natural light and use directed shadows in order to isolate and highlight his subjects without the use of Photoshop, thus maintaining what Mark views as photographic integrity. His efforts have resulted in the lighting effects and backgrounds that can be seen throughout this collection.

The images found in this collection were taken in Mark's home studio using either modified equipment from the early 70's, or various macro techniques, resulting in levels of optical magnification which are seldom seen in traditional macro photography.
