    Thanks, Dave. The guy covering the elections with a Speed is David Burnett (and maybe there's another guy out there with a Graphic recently). I saw a few Weegee prints at AIPAD, and they were great prints. These were made for exhibition, rather than reproduction.

    You are correct Dave. It was David Burnett, purchased the camera at Casey's.

    That second one is quite reminiscent of Weegee's later works!

    I'm itching to do some more Weegee experimentation, just have to find the right time and place. Maybe at some summer fair or festival.

    I don't have any LF gear, so I'm kind of limited to emulating the style with 35mm.

    Wee Gee's most recalled photos are usually night scenes, crime photos etc. using flash bulb with presets at 10 feet or so f/16 (I read that somewhere once) . However, he did a lot of street and genre work i.e. beach scenes, street scenes etc. without flash, a bit of foreshadowing of Arbus, IMNSHO.

    When I did my Weegee experiments, I tried to think and shoot like Weegee would have done, which is almost thinking backwards from the way I usually shoot. I preset the focus, 6, 12 feet sometimes, stopped way down, and then adjusted my position to compose. No focusing thru the viewfinder.

    Of course by stopping down that far, the depth of field is wide, so precise focus is not that critical.
