Photographic experience

Lloyd is a longtime photographer, having used a wide variety of film formats and lenses including 35mm, 4X5 view camera, 6X7, 645 and 617.

Having learned darkroom technique in high school and later managed the Stanford darkroom while a student, I am glad to be working faster and cleaner with digital!

Diglloyd.com is targeted at photographers seeking objective and high-quality information which can be trusted to make buying decisions, to learn or enhance skills, or to find best-practices for a smooth photographic workflow.
