Back to the Studio

Friday, October 20th, 2017

Getting back to trying to catch up on my editing. Well, it was more than a year ago when I moved out of my studio in the Front Street Buildings in Dayton. I had a studio in that complex for something like 15 years…maybe more, I forget. During that time I had accumulated a lot […]

Reveille In Focus

Friday, April 28th, 2017

As promised, here are some photos of Reveille taken with a “real” lens. I was using my old 50mm f/1.4 Nikkor for these photos, playing around with depth of focus. That lens is definitely not sharp wide open at f/1.4, but stopped down one or two stops it gets very nice. Reveille looks great in […]

Street Light On Kelsey

Monday, September 26th, 2016

More of Kelsey Dylan at the studio in December 2014. First we shot while it was still light outside and we had a mix of daylight and the street light, which had just come on in the growing twilight. Then it got dark and we had just the street light coming through the window. The […]

Kelsey In The Studio

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

I’m going to get to work with the amazing Kelsey Dylan again this week, so this seems like a good time to post some older photos of her. I’m almost finished editing shoots from 2014. We did this shoot in the evening at the studio a couple days after Christmas. We were playing around with […]

Some Romahni Portraits

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

While we were down at the cabin in the Hocking Hills I did a few portraits of Romahni Rose. Back in 1969, when I graduated from high school, I got some money as graduation gifts. Enough money that was able to buy my first Nikon. It was a Nikkormat Ftn. I still have that camera […]

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

A few more photos of Athena, this time taken with a “real” camera, my D7000 and my 50mm f/1.4 lens. I like that lens for portraits. These were shot stopped down one stop to f/2. It’s nice and sharp there, with a shallow depth of focus.  The originals of these, of course, are in color, […]

Just Hangin’ Out

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

I make several trips to Chicago every year. It’s not that far away and I have a lot of reasons to visit. My gallery is there.  I also have quite a few friends in the Chicago area. And there are some great models there. Of course, the models and the friends are often the same people. […]

Ayn’s Front

Friday, May 18th, 2012

Here are some more photos of Ayn from my test of the lighting technique shared with me by MC Grain.  Ayn looks great from pretty much any angle, and I’m really enjoying what this light does with her figure.  I’ll be doing some more work with this light.  And I’m looking forward very much to […]

Ayn’s Back

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Yes, Ayn is back with some more photos from my test shoot with this new lighting style.  And, of course, that is Ayn’s back in the photos.  I’ll be working more with this light from time to time.  Thanks again to MC Grain for freely sharing this technique with me. For those who care about the […]

Light and Dark

Friday, May 11th, 2012

It’s fun to play around with different kinds of light.  In the winter when I can’t work outside with nude models because they seem to always complain too much about the cold, I often find myself experimenting with lighting methods in the studio.  That’s what I was doing when I shot these photos of Ayn. […]
