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.

Mr. Remainder - A life on the street with diabetes

Diabetes care is hard enough, but it gets a little trickier when you live on the street. He has four weeks until they can remove the stitches where all his toes were amputated because of poor circulation resulting from diabetes.

Sherry and I went to see the eagles on the Mississippi. The weather was great and we actually saw some eagles, ducks and seagulls this trip.

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...
