Krause Gallery Exhibit

In case anyone is interested, I'm showing some of my black and white traditional prints in the Krause Gallery this week and next. Be sure to leave me comments in the guest book next to my exhibit.

Old Foggy Bottom nickname when I was in the service.

Through the Fog: Selected Images

Here are a few images so far:

Final Project: Through the Fog

So, for my final project, I'm going to focus on the fog. It's the season for it and most people, I think, just assume that the morning fog creates a disastrous environment for photographs. But...some of the finest photographs I've ever seen were taken in the fog. In fact, I remember a while back when I took Colleen's B/W class, there was an older gentlemen (older than me, believe it or not) who was taking the class just for fun (what a concept, eh?) and he took this wonderful photograph of a solitary tree standing in the fog. And I thought, I've been trying to take that photograph my entire life.

Some Selected Images from Project 4: Critical Mass

This is a canal in Venice, in 2001. I forget what film I was using at the time, probably some cheap stuff I bought locally. It came out pretty good, though.

This photograph was taken in Newquay, Cornwall on the west coast of the UK in 1984. By this time, I was usually shooting Fujichrome 400. As far as I know, someone actually lives in that house.

This is another ancient photograph from my feckless youth. Shot on Kodachrome and then scanned at 2400 DPI. This is a buddy of mine rowing a boat across Tillery Lake in the Idaho mountains. There was a group of us who made an annual trip to this place every 4th of July. It was just an excuse to get wasted.

This is a shot of my wife (then girlfriend) taken at dusk in the foothills outside my hometown in Idaho. This photograph is over thirty years old and was shot on 35mm Kodachrome and then scanned.

This was a raccoon in my backyard:

Here's a shot of the stairwell in Gerlinger Hall:

This is my cat (actually, my wife's cat) in full hunting mode:

Here's an image of Clear Lake taken this past summer with my D200:

Critical Mass

Contact Sheets for Critical Mass: I started with scanned images of junk mail I had in my recycling then added some images I've taken in the past - many of them were scanned 35mm slides. Todd: see if you can find Jody Branson.

What a long, strange trip it's been...Mapping Assignment 3

Well, here it is: the final product. I took the bus from the closest stop from my house, across town to the central post office to pick up my mail. You meet a lot of interesting characters on the bus - including a guy who, as soon as he saw my camera, insisted on telling me all about his buddy who shoots weddings. I'm assuming he meant "with a camera."

Mapping Contact Sheets

Here's the contact sheets for my mapping assignment. I photographed a trip from my house in Springfield to my post office box at the central post office on Willamette - via bus.
