  1. Hie thee hence, 2011!

    by , 12-22-2011 at 01:05 PM
    Despite the title of this blog post, 2011 was not THAT bad of a year, although it could have been a hell of a lot better. Kicking things off, I was still in temporary employment limbo, waiting for my current employer to bring me on board officially. Then, in March (just about the same time my employer picked me up as a permanent employee) I split from my partner of 3 1/2 years, and it was an ugly split. I'm still paying the lawyer's bill until January. Yeah, it was THAT ugly that I had to get a ...
  2. Another year in the life draws to a close . . . (short but sweet)

    by , 12-21-2011 at 08:57 PM
    Wow. Alot has happened in the last few months. And life has just been a'zippin' by at a murderous rate. Where to begin . . .

    Well, we'll pick up where we left off. The Rickett's Glen trip. Yeah, been that long. Well, had a wonderful time with Lee and Susan and everyone. Friday morning, I was not going to go. I was having a bad Remembering-Faith time. And I did not want to go anywhere. Let alone with a camera. So, my brother calls me and his weekend has freed up and he invites ...
  3. More studio updates

    by , 04-04-2011 at 02:37 PM
    Ok- the storage locker is now assembled, and the studio is being maintained to a reasonable semblance of cleanliness (a bit challenging when your studiomates are a pair of hippies and a painter/3-d installation artist). It looks way more professional now, and I think the other guys will in the long term appreciate the improvement when they can raise their billable rate for the space, even though they were grumbling about not needing the storage locker (if you saw the place before, you'd understand ...
  4. Been busy

    by , 03-14-2011 at 12:32 PM
    I've been busy working away at getting the new studio set up. Added an INKA studio mono stand to the arsenal for shooting large subjects and/or working with the 14x17. Rolled the Century Master portrait camera out yesterday to shoot some still life stuff for a print exchange. I'm working on getting some classes on the calendar to take advantage of the studio space as a teaching space again. Watch for announcements about an intro to studio lighting class, a photographing the male nude class, and ...
  5. Stieglitz Steichen Strand exhibit review

    by , 01-19-2011 at 01:47 PM
    I've posted a review of the Stieglitz, Steichen and Strand exhibit, from my perspective and regarding my interests in the show over on my blog. To read the whole review, check out


    The biggest interest to me in seeing the show was getting to examine the Steichen prints up close and personal. I don't know if he worked from enlarged negatives or was he shooting ULF, but most of the prints were much larger than 8x10- I would guess 11x14 ...
