  1. Dollar Portraits

    by , 09-30-2008 at 08:02 PM (Click)
    In the interest of self plugging my work, but more importantly raising money for a worthy charity, I present to you a project I have recently started.

    I call it Dollar Portraits and the idea is to walk up to strangers on the street and ask to take their portrait. In return I pledge a dollar to a charity and without being pushy ask them to match it with a dollar or more. The portraits are all shot in a 6x6 format and displayed on the net. I display them for two reasons. One is in homage ...

  2. Photo Taking Machine

    by , 09-30-2008 at 04:46 AM (Click)
    I don't know if I'm strange for doing this but I'm a photo taking machine!

    In my life I'v clicked the shutter no more than 5,000 times. That's a small number by anyone's standards and especially for someone that considers themselves an amateur photographer.

    I have however taken thosands upon thousands of photos in just the last month. I'm a freak of nature. I can't walk to the kitchen without mentally taking a few photos. I open the pantry and as the light hits the ...

  3. There´s always a first time

    by , 09-24-2008 at 08:59 PM
    Today it´s the first day having my dear enlarger in place for almost 1½ year, no more getting frustrated over others equipment. Setting is hopefully very temporary but I suspect so is not the case. Going from a large lab - to make exposure in the attic and then running down deadly narror stairs to a small bathroom to develope. Why not start writing a blog for first time ever, just today? A lot of new stuff starts this week, awakening, coming back to life, goodbye desperation, depression and lethargy, ...

  4. Giving this blog thing a try

    by , 09-23-2008 at 07:23 AM
    I suppose there are a lot of things I could say in this blog, but considering I've never done it, I'll just tell what happened on a shoot last Friday evening.

    A friend of mine (a fellow LF shooter) and I went to the balloon glow at Forest Park in St. Louis. The glow occurs the night before the Great Forest Park Balloon Race.

    He and I were both shooting 4x5. I am proud to say that I was able to backpack my camera gear with relative ease. I am not a backpacking sort ...

  5. Ike aftermath

    by , 09-17-2008 at 05:09 PM
    THe hurricane dealt us a direct hit. Massive destruction. The images from the coast just break my heart. Here, with power supplied by the generator, we are only inconvenienced. Cleanup will take a long time, but we've had no damage to the house or cars and, more importantly, to ourselves.

    I've taken lots of digipicts, but will venture out with a real camera soon: the lovebugs that gather along the sap rings of the just-sawn tree trunks, the tomato hornworms that ravaged my tomato ...
