A photo and lighting place! Here I'll post some stuff I've shot in the process of learning.

Since my move to Fujifilm equipment (sharper & better) , I now shoot with two Fuji X-E2 bodies.
(until the X-PRO2 comes along, anyway)

* Fujinon XF18-55 f/2.8-4.0 R (SHARP across the range!)
* Fujinon XF55-200 f/3.5-4.8 R (Uber SHARP across the range!)
* Fujinon XF10-24 f/3.5-4.8 R (SHARP across the range!)


Flash stuff:
* 6 Yongnuo 560-IV with commander/transmitter.
* 6 Nikon SB-25/26/28s (old, manual, reliable, nice),

* (6) Pocket Wizard and (6) Yongnuo RF-603 radio flash triggers

And
tons of stands, umbrellas, soft-boxes, brolly boxes, mounts, hot & cold shoes (and some lukewarm ones), cords, spigots, clamps, pocket wizard triggers, reflectors, scrims, backdrops, adapters, snoots, grids, batteries , chargers, bags & cases, gewgaws, clamps, gimcracks, whatchamacallits, doohickeys, thingamajigs, whatnots, widgets, et cetera.

I love to shoot out on the street, but the technical aspects of photography/lighting are fascinating - and sometimes vexing. I am fortunate to shoot with motivated and inquisitive photographers.


I am available for portraits, senior photos & product photography.

Commercially printed copies (up to 24" x 36" of most photos seen here are available on high quality paper or mounted board for framing.

The Model Sessions - Portrait shoot

Our local group (Through the Lens Productions) held an un-themed model shoot. I went To practice shooting portraits.

The emphasis here is on the lighting and processing. Takes a wagon to haul in the photo-junk. Well worth it.

Here's a sample of the lighting setup: Strobist: Fuji X-E2 @ ISO 200, Fujinon 55-200 @ f/5.6, (2) YN 560-IV in brollybox camera rt. @ 1/4 power, YN 560-IV gridded on bkgnd. @ 1/4 power, YN 560-IV gridded as hair light @ 1/4 power, white reflector camera left, YN 560TX as radio.
