Back home from that long trip out west, it took me a while to get back to work.  By that time it had gotten cold, so it was time to make use of my studio.  And the first shoot I did was with an old friend. Athena is a lovely young woman, a talented photographer, […]

One Last Time

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Well, the last time for this trip, anyway.  I expect that Brooke and I will be working together many times in the future.  At least I hope so.  After the stop in Denver where Brooke modeled for wet plate photos by Mark Sink and Kristen Hatgi, we headed for home…well, for Brooke’s home in Minnesota […]

I guess it’s about time to post something new so I don’t frighten all my regular readers away with that scary photo of me all bloodied.  I’m doing very well, recovering and watching the red go away to be replaced by some serious black eyes.  Still limping a bit, but my ankle is almost back […]

Never try to steal girlscout cookies from a motorcycle gang. I thought I’d go ahead and post this here for those of you who haven’t seen it on facebook.  I had a little accident yesterday.  I wish it were a better story, but it is pretty mundane. I went to the grocery store to buy […]

Which Side Are You On?

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

No photos today.  Just one of my rants.  You’ve been warned. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal…” It’s hard for us to realize, nearly 250 years after Thomas Jefferson wrote those words, just how radical a statement that was at the time.  That was the age of the […]

The Last of Kat

Friday, March 16th, 2012

A few more photos of Kat from our shoot in the LA apartment.  These were the last photos I took of Kat because she stayed behind in LA when Brooke and I left to drive back home.  I need to figure out a way to get together with Kat again to do more photos sometime […]

More Fuzzy Kat

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

Well, they really aren’t all that fuzzy.  My 50 f/1.4 is really pretty sharp, especially if you close it down a stop or two.  But it does nice soft things to the background and sometimes to the subject, like in the last photo in this post.  Kat, as always, did a great job modeling for […]

Moving On To The Left Coast

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

When we left Page we headed west, first to Las Vegas.  I spent my time in Vegas taking care of truck repairs, meeting friends and in general just recovering from the stress of the past week.  So I didn’t do any shooting while we were in Vegas. After a few days in Vegas we continued […]

Farewell To Coyote Buttes

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

This will be the end of posts of photos from my day at South Coyote Buttes with Brooke and Kat.  And I’m ending this series with the two photos that have become my favorites from that day after living with all of them for quite some time.  These two really speak to me of the […]

Kat On The Red Hot Rock

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

A couple more of Kat from South Coyote Buttes.  I hope you aren’t tired of photos from this incredible place.  I’m not.  But I’m close to the end of what I plan to post from our day of shooting there, so we’ll be moving on to something completely different in the near future.  Different but […]
