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.

Joe McNally, David Hobby and more shots from the street

Spent Saturday morning doing a few shots for Sekkii. We worked Alley A in downtown Columbia. Great cloudy day for using flash. I decided to do a 1-lite shoo, trying to make it look like nighttime while shooting in daylight. Needed a rim-light on some for separation, but didn't have room behind Sekkii in the small alley. Shoot noir - get noir.

Strobist: Nikon D700 @ ISO 200, Sigma 70-200 2.8 EX @ F/5.6, Nikon sb-25 @ 1/2 power in shoot-through brolly with reflector (white) fill, pocket wizards.

A fellow walking through the ally while we were shooting, so I coopted him to join in the image.

Went to the Joe McNally / David Hobby Flashbus tour in St. Louis with John Leach. GREAT presentation by two super shooters.

w00t! In the middle of the show at the last stop of Joe McNally and David Hobby's 2011 Flash Bus Tour, he snagged me as the victim subject for a demonstration on stage. He took off his glasses and said "Here, put these on." Joe was gracious enough to give me the image at the end of the presentation. Kinda cool to get your portrait by one of the best shooters in the past 50 years.
