Happy Halloween

Friday, October 28th, 2016

  I seem to do a lot of Halloween-themed photos, so I thought I’d share a collection of them to mark the spooky holiday this year. Theda is one of my favorite subject for these. There’s just something about her that lends itself to darker photos. Above she is being “Gothic Eve” for my Eve […]

Dirty Show Time

Sunday, February 7th, 2016

It’s almost time for the Dirty Show in Detroit. I’ve had work in this show for many years, but a couple years ago I decided to stop entering it. I got talked out of that and entered again last year. But this year I did not enter. I will, however, have some prints available for […]

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, […]

Instant Athena

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

I’ve long enjoyed the 3000 speed instant film…both the Polaroid stuff and the Fuji copy. I was working on a project using that film when Fuji announced it was discontinuing it. That was a sad day. I have a stash of it and I’m continuing to work with it until it is gone forever. The […]

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, […]

Dirty, Dirty, Dirty

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

Just got the word that I’ll have two photos in the Dirty Show at the end of September/beginning of October up in Detroit. This is the first time they’ve picked more than one of my entries for the show. Here are the two that will be exhibited: Bed Posts (Models: Athena, Unbearable Lightness) (Photographed before […]

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 […]

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 […]
