Photography - I am often asked what camera I use and how I take my pictures. In 2007 I purchased a Canon Powershot A570 7.2 MP. When I moved my workshop in March 2011 I couldn't locate my Canon A570 so I purchased a Canon SX130 12.1 MP. I turn the camera on, point, and click. I take the pictures in my living room around 10 AM as this time of day seems to have the right amount of sunlight. I do not edit or alter any images. The pictures come off my camera and go straight to my website. As good as the pipes in the pictures appear they look even better in person. I do not take pictures of every set I make, only unique configurations and styles are added to this gallery.
