Cameras for all

April 27, 2016

So my neighbor knows I’m a photographer, and being the sweetheart he is, thought I’d like this old Insta Flash twin lens. He couldn’t have been more right! Circa 1950, this 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 negative producing box retailed for $6.95. I like it on pink…

The intention was to take some photos of missing front teeth. This is where we ended up.

Just kidding. But seriously, these old Dot Blue flash bulbs would blow your mind if you were in front of one, let alone three at the same time. Each bulb has a guide number of 550′ at ISO 100. Some back of the envelope math indicates flash output around 700 watt/seconds, which is intense. All three together with this sweet clover leaf hand-held-light-of-the-stars flashgun? Revelatory.

NEW WEBSITE

Ok, so here it is again, several months gone by, no action. Well, I’ve had a website redesign so I thought that seemed like a pretty good excuse to write a post. There are a few more project galleries in there, too.

Here’s a sample from one of the new galleries, “Red Rocket,” which is a series on a family-owned fireworks stand in rural Oklahoma. Thanks for taking a look!

John Moreland

July 8, 2015

It was last year when I posted last, and I intend to catch up in the next few weeks to share a bunch of stuff. On that note, last week I had the opportunity to shoot portraits of Tulsa, Okla. singer/songwriter John Moreland for The Wall Street Journal. The print version ran the image a half page (which was great), the web version is here:

The first image is the one they used, a few outtakes follow.

This project sort of morphed into story of a boy left to his own devices in nature.

Tall people.

October 10, 2014

A few shots that I liked from this year’s OKC Thunder media day. Last photo ran in the local paper, The Oklahoman, and shows just how not tall I am. To be fair, Steven Adams is seven-feet tall.
