My unforgettable Mookie

As  I ponder on the dreadful winter ahead, I think of my beloved and departed but unforgettable Belgian sheep dog, Mookie who absolutely enjoyed the cold weather and especially the snow. He is always with me as I carry him in my heart.

Classic studio light


My studio techniques always fallowed the tenet of keeping it simple. One umbrella and a reflector or just window light and a reflector. My old studio on East 26 Street faced north so I had ideal light. Both of these shots used window light with a reflector. The film was good old Tri-X Pan and the camera was the Nikon F with the Nikkor 105 F 2.5 lens. A combination made in heaven.

Another favorite

I love this shot

I consider this a true classic that just happened. It was shot with the Nikonos II under water camera that I used during inclement weather and the 35 F 2.5 UW Nikkor on Tri-X Pan film. The place was Hoyt Street in Brooklyn.
