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 foster-mother's love; a real can of worms

Sherry has catalpa trees in her yard and they get a lot of worms late in the summer. Sherry says they're great for fishing, but she got me a coffee can full for some photos, along with the leaves they eat.

The mom worms carry their pupae on their backs until they get to ground and bury them to arrive next year. After some research, I found out that a parasitic wasp lays eggs under the worm's skin, which hatch and spin little cocoons on the outside.

I set up on my macro table with a coupla flashes in softboxes. Since I used f/22 to 39 and a low ISO (200), my big sunpak 611s were between full and 1/4 power.
Strobist: Nikon D700 (ISO 200), Sigma EX 105 macro (f/28-f/39), Sunpak 611 flash in softboxes L&R (1/4 power fill, full power main), pocket wizards and slave.
