My name is Ernst Merkhofer. I like to m(t)ake photographs.
Coming from film SLRs during the ‘80s and ‘90s, I ended up with a digital SLR and a couple of lenses around 2003.
My current tools of choice are:
Canon L lenses: 24-105 mm 4.0 IS, 85 mm 1.2, 135 mm 2.0, 70-200 mm 2.8 IS MK2,
non L: Sigma Art 35mm 1.4, Sigma Art 50mm 1.4, Tamron 90mm 2.8 Macro, Tokina 16-28 mm 2.8.
Gitzo Mountaineer G 1227 MK2, Novoflex Pano Head VR-PRO
I like very large photo prints with lots of detail, hence I concentrate on multiple row panoramas to capture the scene and mood of the moment.
Italy, mainly Tuscany is one of my favourite subjects.
