    Beattie Coleman Portronic Camera

    Hello folks. Was wondering if anyone could tell me if this is worth anything or just a trip to the dump. From what I can tell, I think it's a Beattie Coleman portronic camera. It has a f/4.5 182 mm lens. It belonged to a neighbors husband who died several years ago. He was a photographer...

    Captain America!

    Here's a couple of shots I took of my nephew a while back on his birthday. He received a bunch of Captain America stuff which is his favorite character. I thought it made a nice b/w even though the background is a bit busier that I would've liked. It just started out as a quick snap shot but...

    Play Ball

    Here's a shot from last Sunday's Indians / Whitesox game. I had pretty good seats, but unfortunately, the safety net interfered a bit with this shot. Thoughts?

    2012 Christmas Card pic

    Well, here it is. Just uploaded to Mpix for our annual Christmas Card. Each year, I think it will be the last before my daughter stops believing in Santa. This year I incorporated "Luke" our Elf on the Shelf. Luke has been found in some interesting spots this year since it may very well be...

    Bridezilla and wedding photography

    Caught a couple of episodes of this show this weekend and saw this one: Bridezilla Liza and her demanding ways! - YouTube I've shot only a few weddings in my time and never relied on photography to be my sole income. I can honestly say though, mortgage or not, I would've laughed at this lady...

    Elakala Falls in B&W

    I was playing around with editing a shot of Elakala falls that I took the other day, and just for kicks, I tried a B/W conversion of it. What are your thoughts? You can contrast it with the color version here. I...

    I had something else in mind when I shot this and was going more for a saturated color type thing, but decided on a b/w conversion. Not sure I like it. Thoughts?

    This was kind of an after thought of a shot, but I kind of like it....thoughts? It was taken through a store front window, so there are some reflections that I didn't want, but it is, what it is.

    Elakala Falls

    Hello all. Long time since I've posted anything. I just got back from a quick trip to Davis WV to photograph the Elekala Falls. Here's one I came back with. The water level was a bit low, and if you've seen this fall before, you may have seen it's indicative swirling pool in the lower right...

    2011 Christmas Card

    Well, just shot and ordered our yearly Christmas card. Running a little behind but I think we'll be okay. Kind of similar to the one I did last year, but somewhat different. Care to share your thoughts?

    Furniture - First attempt

    Well, here's my first attempt at photographing furniture. This was for an antique shop which is very crowded. I think I would prefer having everything staged in an actual studio so that you can control the BG. Items w/ mirrors are really distracting. I'd appreciate any comments. I know...

    Furniture photography

    I have a small job with a local antique shop and the owner wants about 4 shots of some of her nicer furniture that she can use for her web page. She apparently sent in some of her own shots and the web designer encouraged her to hire someone instead to do them. She is going to stage the...
