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 (WAY sharper & MUCH better than my old Nikon gear) , I now shoot with two Fuji X-E2 bodies and the NEW X-T2 from Sherry on my birthday!

* Fujinon XF10-24 f/3.5-4.8 R (SHARP across the range!)
Fujinon XF18-55 f/2.8-4.0 R (SHARP across the range!)
* Fujinon XF60 f/2.4 (SHARP across the range!)
* Fujinon XF55-200 f/3.5-4.8 R (Uber 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

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.

Harrisburg wins! On to the final game for state champions

The crowd was a sea of red shirts as the Harrisburg Bulldogs made it 30-0 for the year. Despite a punishing 3-point shooter on the other team, the 'Dawgs played a smart strategic game to win. State final Class-2 game is Saturday at 15:20 at THE University of Missouri Arena.

The school tried to get us in to this game as yearbook photographers, but the state high school sports association, with a proprietary interest in having their own photographers on the floor, didn't let just anybody in to shoot, so I was relegated to the riff-raff. Several small-town papers, most of which didn't cover the game anyway, also didn't come up with a pass for me. Both Columbia papers have covered Harrisburg ball pretty well this year, especially after the girls' team moved into the regional brackets. Apparently, the best way to get down on the floor is to carry a P&S camera. A lot of people were walking around the court with cameras that weren't pointed at the game and clicking. I'll just keep practicing, and eventually I'll get to shoot the finals one year.

SO, we shot from the seats and had a great time.  When you get lemons - make lemonade.
