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, I now shoot with a Fuji X-E2.


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

Flash stuff:
* 6 Nikon SB-25/26/28s (old, manual, reliable, nice),
* 6 ancient Sunpak 611 flashes (really old, manual, reliable, nice) with big SLA battery packs for studio, tabletop macro and portraits
. (GN=168 = lotsa light for a $50 flash).
* (6) Pocket Wizard and (6) Yongnuo RF-603 radio flash triggers

And
tons of stands, umbrellas, soft-boxes, mounts, hot & cold shoes, cords, pocket wizard radio triggers, reflectors, scrims, backdrops, adapters, snoots, grids, batteries , chargers, bags & cases, gewgaws, 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 30" of most photos seen here are available on high quality paper for framing.

With the Fujifilm X-E2, it's not just a piece o' meat. How's your "kit" lens?

"Just" don't do it justice. Beef; it's what's for dinner!
They'll get liberal salt and pepper, along with a screaming hot skillet and a little olive oil.

How's your "KIT" lens?
These lovely ribeyes were shot with the Fujifilm X-E2 and the "Kit" Fujinon XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS zoom  lens. The pepper is sharp as a tack at 200% view and the bokeh is great. Food porn!

strobist: Fuji X-E2  (1/180, ISO 400), Fujinon XF18-55 (f/8, 24 or 40mm), sunpak 611 in softbox overhead (1/64 power), pocket wizards

Busking at 10 degrees

I was so cold that my shaking made shooting difficult and I couldn't feel the shutter button. He played on...
