More Friend Photos

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

I took my lovely friend to my studio for a few more photos. I’ve always loved simple window light, so we worked a bit with that. And we played around a bit with studio flash lighting. But mostly it was just a time for making photos of a lovely woman.

Photos of a Friend

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Last summer a friend and fellow photographer agreed to pose for some photos. She is a lovely woman and she had a beautiful home where we worked together to make these photos. Her back yard also was a nice setting. But she is so lovely that I couldn’t resist just making some portraits of her. […]

Some Shows

Saturday, July 1st, 2017

Wow…sorry that it has been just shy of a full month since my last post. I’ve been busy. Actually, I’ve been traveling. I just returned from Peru. No time and little internet access while I was on the road. I’ll have some of those photos to post here soon. But, meanwhile, I want to tell […]

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 […]

I did a few grandkid photos the other day. Grandkids are one of the few good things about getting old.

It’s always a pleasure to have my work in one of the great shows that this gallery does. You can view the entire show at the link above. Or, better […]

“Fujiroids” in the Cabin

Monday, June 13th, 2016

When Fuji announced that they were discontinuing their “peel apart” 3000 speed instant film I was very sad. I love that film and enjoyed shooting with it using my Speed Graphic and the pack film back I have for it from the pre-digital days of using Polaroids to check lighting and exposure. I ordered a […]

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 […]

Angie in Blue

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

Still working through shoots from 2014. This is one I did with the lovely Angie. The theme for the shoot was blue, so we worked with whatever was handy and blue. Angie did her usual amazing job of modeling, creating a variety of moods. And, of course, we had to shoot a few sort-of nudes […]

Let’s try something different

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

Sorry for the neglect of this blog. I’ve been very busy in recent months and I’m also still not totally recovered from my illness in January. But mainly I’ve been captivated by Ello. I post a new photo over there almost every day. As I’ve said before, go there if you want to see stuff. […]
