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.

Jeffrey Lopardo; Vietnam veteran - Remembered.

Jeffrey Lopardo; Vietnam veteran - Remembered.

 Jeffrey Lopardo died last December; but, his body has remained, by law, at the coroner's office for 30 days. No family, no one, has claimed his remains. On 29JAN16 the Patriot Guard Riders, along with members of several veteran's organizations and others attended full military services for Jeffrey at the Jacksonville Veterans' Cemetery.
 "Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning. We will remember them."
