early risers

The action starts early round these parts....

old stuff, I love it

My Father in Law has graciously donated these great publications, and of course the Yashica Mat 124g to the cause. Many people don't realize the value of these publications, but I'm in the darkroom everyday, so the old stuff in perfect shape become treasures I can really use. When I came home last night and looked in the garage he had dropped these off, I can't read this stuff fast enough, what happened to photography? The seventies must have ruled for film shooting in this town?

Here's literally the first two shots I've had time to adjust from a shoot today at Gigi's restaurant. This woman (Gigi) is the inspiration behind a lot of the great food they serve, and man they served me up a killer smoked turkey and bacon panini for lunch when I was done.

going light

I've finally consolidated my equipment to this little pile for a shoot today, minus the backdrop stands. It's an environmental portrait of a restauranter, so I plan to get them cooking, or set up for a variety of portraits that speak to their expertise.

Rochester Museum new school/old school

Here's some shots from today's trip to the museum. I put a bunch of the old wing stuff in to jog my friends memories from when we went on field trips back in the day.

Restoration, or inspiration for a Scooby Doo episode?

Ice Jammed heavy near the mouth of the Genesee River in Rochester, NY.


Fresh wings, floured and baked in the cast iron skillet.

I tried to maintain some detail in portions while using a nice shallow depth of field for softness in other areas.
All shots: f2.8, 1/25 sec, ISO 50, 200mm

equipment: Canon EOS 1D Mark II/Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8L
