I’ve been talking a lot lately of taking pictures of your family heirloom photographs with a digital camera. Using a tripod and window light one can create a very good digital copy. The heirloom photographs can be put back in a cool dry place and one can share their “new” digital copies with family and friends. Here are a few examples from my family.
My grandfather is second from stage left. Circa 1900.
My mom and dad in Iowa, circa 1940
Dad’s home from WW II, circa 1944
I love shooting Sunsets in the San Joaquin valley.
This day I was surprised with thousands of migrating birds.
One has to shoot fast as the light changes rapidly.
But the rewards are timeless.
I finished work early yesterday and thought I would relax for a little while.
I went to Steamer Lane in Santa Cruz and photographed the surfers.
I shot at 1/250 & 1/500 and overexposed +0.3, for the backlight.
Last night in SLR 102 at Gordons Photo Service I made this HDR image from an old building in Golconda, NV. I have also included a black and white version created in Silver Efex Pro.
Yesterday we visited the dunes North of Winnemucca.
I just processed these photos to share. We were very lucky with the wind and the weather.
One of the best locations in my sales territory is Monterey and Pacific Grove.
This evening I was shooting after the sun went down, using slow shutter speeds from 1/20 at f11
to 13” at f5.6 under moonlight for the blue one.

Fielding, Dan, Val and myself were playing with stop action strobe photography the other night in Reno. This is an example of what we shot. The model was on a mirror.
The "ranch ladies" of Denio had me back this Fall for a second time. We all had a wonderful weekend filled with photography and Delia’s good cooking. Here are some pictures of Rob, Delia’s husband, his horse and an old truck at midnight.
