“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”
For me, photography is a way to slow down and pay closer attention to the world around
me. The things I look for with my camera in hand — light, color, line — are always
present but often ignored when I move through the world at my normal pace.
My photographic interests are diverse and eclectic. I started out thinking I was going to
be a “landscape photographer” but my attention keeps drifting. My current interests
encompass not only landscape photography but also macro and close-up photography,
architectural subjects and the urban environment. I particularly enjoy photographing
abandoned buildings and places to find the visual stories in things left behind.
Photographic techniques such as long exposure and monochrome processing allow me to
reveal aspects of my subjects that are not always obvious to the eye.

Carl Schofield was a research scientist with the department of natural resources at Cornell University from 1960 to 1995. Before retiring in 1995, much of his work was focused on acid rain impacts of the Adirondack Mountains in New York State, Canada and Scandinavia. His long term interest in photography dates back to his teens and following his retirement he has pursued this former hobby more vigorously as an avocation.
Carl’s primary interests are nature, landscape and travel photography. He exhibits his work regularly in local venues. Infrared landscape photography is of particular interest to Carl and his infrared work was featured in a 2001 Popular Photography professional portfolio publication. Carl currently uses several digital and film cameras to capture his images and he prints with Epson and Canon large format printers.
