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.

A busy week

Spent some time out on the street, of course.

Fella playing the guitar outside Sparky's ice cream shop. Anybody that can spend $4 on a small cup of ice cream aughta be able to drop some in his bucket.

The Heritage Festival in Columbia Missouri; What would you do for a corndog?
What would you do for a corndog?

There was folk music and a polka band that were pretty good.

Sherry's new bonnet. She got a matching apron too.

On the way to work it's great to catch a photogenic sunrise with the morning mist and all that, but hard to find a good subject. Let's face it, the sunrise by itself is pretty, but a little uninteresting IMO. When you happen on to one of these, you've got maybe 5-6 minutes when the light's just right. I was blasting along at 70 mph on US 63 looking for anything that would be good to shoot, and this tree was all I could find. The 24" X 30" print of this came out great!

On the macro table this little guy was tough because he just wouldn't hold still. At f/32 and a DOF of maybe 1/16",focus is difficult. I was putting him in the freezer for 3-4 minutes to slow him down, and then taking him out to shoot at the table. Each time I'd get maybe 30 seconds before he was off and running again. I used two big Sunpak 611s in small softboxes (full and 1/4 power) to get enough light. D700 at ISO-200 with a Sigma EX 105mm macro lens. The beetle was about 1/2" long and a lovely purple color.
