Inspired by an accomplished writer I stepped out on a limb and self published my own short book today. A collection of the wisdom my father shared with me that was and is the foundation of any personal and professional success I have achieved. Link here and at picture below.
Recently was hired to photograph an event. Got to put a lot of my practice and experience to work for this event. Also learned a lot while capturing moments from this event. So goes this process and I will be following up on what I learned on KEH’s blog site in the upcoming weeks. But while photographing this event and while going through the post-event editing process I was struck by how beautiful these folks all were. Every one of them. Not only aesthetically, but a wonderful energy permeated the air. With so much behavioral ugliness on display in the world these days it was very refreshing. Here I present a few samples of the hundreds of photos captured and delivered to share some of the beauty that was on display. Continue reading Beautiful People: A Wonderful Photo Shoot→
I am a friend of cheap affordable film. Will usually find me in possession of some manner of drug store or megalomart grade multi pack film. This film costs about the same, but when you factor in that Color Plus is 36 exposures per roll, rather than the typical bargain grade 24, that makes it even more of a deal.

I have dabbled with a few medium format film cameras in recent years. Wonderful devices, but practical is not a word that jumps to mind. They kind of make no sense admittedly. If you want to use film 35mm cameras should do the job. Plenty of sharp lenses on 35mm. Plenty of great 35mm cameras. Nikon F-something, Leica M-anything, Contax G or T then number and on and on. But if you are looking for those things many like in pictures without even knowing why, like DOF, focus fall off and detail, it is hard to beat medium format film. Why not digital medium format? Go check out the prices of even years old, used medium format digital cameras at the big sites and come back. Start out with the son of Pentax 645N, the 645D, not even the more recent 645Z. I’ll wait…
You back? I know, right? Ok. As I was saying medium format film cameras.
