Yashica

Today's job is to get this old medium format Yashica cleaned up and loaded with 120 film. My Father in Law gave it to me as a Christmas gift, and these old cameras are legendary for generating amazing quality photos, should be fun...

Mom's gift

This gift to my Mom I made using tile scrap, wood, adhesives, Grout, and sealer. I think she really liked it.

Film to Digital


I shot this picture on ASA 400 B&W film right before Thanksgiving, printed it today, scanned it, and played with it in Photoshop. Fun process.

Breakfast With Santa




Various Vintage/Contemporary Poster Art
















These are some of my Nazareth Students' Poster Art Projects. They had to merge vintage/propaganda poster design techniques with some more contemporary issues or causes acting as their subject matter.

portraits the way these guys wanted them done










These guys wanted no nonsense non-flashy shots done that represent them as they want to be seen, not with weird props or in odd poses, or with clothing they dislike. We shot them rather fast, but it was a good teachable moment in respects to low light portraiture with minimal gear and 400 speed film.
