I've Dave, a hobbyist photographer who mostly lives, works, and plays in Southern California.
"Borrego Photography" is just my online moniker; it is not a working business title nor associated with any person, place, or organization. It also does not imply any particular focus on subject matter of my work. "Borrego" is a Spanish word that has personal significance to me, and "Borrego Photography" was a moniker that was available as both a .com and Instagram handle, so I registered them both.
I do this as a hobby, not professionally, but if you're interested in having an event captured (birthday, Christmas party, etc..), feel free to use my Contact page to reach out!
Other than occasionally posting a few of my "prettier" pictures to Instagram, I don't use social media. I value and respect people's privacy, so I don't publicly post pictures of people's faces or include people in a way that makes then recognizable (unless you already know them personally).
I mostly shoot landscapes from trips that we go on, but I'm working on improving my portrait skills. Lately, I've also been experimenting with 35mm film (black & white, C-41 color, E-6 slide, and Homemade RedScale), Infrared (both false-color & monochrome), Astro-photography, HDR, and Neutral Density filters, amongst other creative techniques. I'm comfortable home-developing my own Black and White in the bathroom, I've dabbled with at-home C-41 color developing, but home E-6 developing is a long way off... I only develop film, I don't produce prints at-home. I digitize my developed film with an Epson v600 Photoscanner using SilverFast 9 software.
Most of my digital work is shot on a Sony a6000 mirrorless, but earlier digital was on a Sony a3000, mirrorless, and a small selection of very early digital was shot on a Sony DSC-H9. Most film is on a Nikon FE SLR, but some is on a Vivitar v4000 SLR. I still grab a disposable camera occasionally. All infrared is on a Nikon D70 DSLR that I converted to infrared myself. Early underwater work was shot with the the Sony a6000 with a SeaFrogs housing, but I now mostly use an Olympus TG-6 with Olympus PT-059 housing underwater.
