There's no substitute for knowledge and experience, and Mike has a ton of both. Most of the stunning images of his you see on RP.net were taken with conventional, old-fashioned color transparency film (various ISOs). He knows how to squeeze the best out of every shot. That's why he's one of the best in the "business."

As for me.....well, not so much (at least in the digital world). I'm still trying to learn, however.
