Cary Enoch Reinstein Cary Enoch Reinstein

I've been a Baha'i since 1963. I'm a single dad who has raised two wonderful Baha'i sons. Professionally, I'm a technical writer at Microsoft Corp. on the Windows NT team. I write astonishingly boring technical Help files for software engineers. I began taking photographs after I moved to Chicago in 1969 simply because I was so wonderstruck by the serene and transcendent beauty of the Baha'i House of Worship. After moving back to California (Chicago is too cold to sustain human life!), and later to Oregon and Washington, I concentrated on images of birth, the Pacific Ocean, the Rain Forests of Washington, rivers and streams, mountain scenes, and wetlands birds. I've also done many images of ice skaters and of the Ballet. The birds suggest many spiritual themes as they fly in front of the low afternoon sun. I create my images while in prayer and do them spontaneously ("thoughtlessly" as our Zen friends might say). I never worry about exposure, composition, or other details when in that state of mind.

My images always begin on 35mm film. These days I use a Canon EOS1n system. I develop the film in my own darkroom and then scan the more promising images with a Nikon Coolscan at very high resolutions. I converted all of my images here to a lower resolution for the PC screen. For those interested in technical trivia, I use a Dell XPS Pro200n with 64MB RAM and a 128-bit/4 MB video controller, under Windows NT 4.0. I use a wide variety of 32-bit imaging software because no single application has everything that I need (Fractal Painter, Photoshop, RayDream Animator Studio, and Corel Draw are my main applications).
