Weston, Kubota and Detroit

Monday, March 30th, 2009

We spent the weekend in Canton and Akron. The Weston exhibit at the Akron Art Museum was wonderful. Smaller than the show a couple years ago at the Dayton Art Institute, but the prints were fantastic to see. These were “vintage” prints made by Edward Weston himself and really showed what a master printer he […]

Curl Up With A Good Model

Friday, March 27th, 2009

I worked primarily in black and white for many years, starting when I first worked as a newspaper photographer back in the days when newspapers only published black and white photos. About 15 years ago I found myself becoming more and more interested in color. I shot a lot of color film and was happy […]

Buy This Book

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

If you do nude photography you need to read this book. It is clear and easy to understand. It gives a good overview of the requirements of the new 2257 regulations and how they may or may not affect your work. There is a lot of foolishness out on the web about this law. Stephen’s […]

Back to Photography

Sunday, March 22nd, 2009

OK…that’s enough of politics and legal crap. Back to photography and beautiful nudes. And light. And shadow. Here’s Athena again from the Florida shoot. This was taken in weak, overcast late afternoon light. I liked what the weak sun was doing with the shadows of the balcony railing. I like the way the shadows play […]

2257 Rant

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

I’m mad as hell and I’m going to vent about it. The draconian, unconstitutional provisions of an extremely poorly written law go into effect tomorrow. This law violates my constitutional right to freedom of expression. I take violations of my rights very seriously. I spent most of my life working to defend the United States, […]

Under The Wire

Monday, March 16th, 2009

Here’s an example of what you won’t be seeing here after the new 2257 rules go into effect in a couple days. OK…so it isn’t great art, but it’s a photo that I had thought about making for a while and Athena came by today to help me do it. I guess some might call […]

Coming Home

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

I’m on my way home from the beach. It’s hard to drive north and watch the temperature drop on the car’s thermometer. It was a great vacation. Lots of fun. But it’s time to go back home. We are stopping to visit relatives in Virginia, then will go on back to the frozen north. I […]

Erotic Signature

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

Just a quick post to announce that I’ve just learned that I had two photos accepted for this year’s Erotic Signature book. Brooke on the hay bales above, and JoJo Suicide from my nurse series, below. I’m on vacation this week and have very limited access to the internet, so this may be the only […]

You are in a very nice condo in Florida with three lovely figure models. There is a great big shower with glass doors. What is a photographer to do? Athena, Martha, and Unbearable Lightness did a great job of steaming up the place. Athena did the photoshopping on this file. She’s really wonderful at that.

Florida Heat and Light

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

Well, it seems I’ve set a new record. This is the longest I’ve gone without a post since I started this blog several years ago. Sorry about that. I’ve been busy. I just returned from a trip to Florida where I got a break from winter, did some family stuff, and also got in a […]
