    I've been commenting on everyone else's pics for a while so I thought turnabout was fairplay. Following are some pics of mine with a little description as to how I took them.

    This was taken at sunset w/ a 400mm lens.

    This was shot with a 135mm lens. This pic was one of five I've had published in a coffee table book.

    This was a time exposure of about 30 seconds. The pic was taken at 11:30 at night with a 50mm lens.

    This shot is a result of "sandwiching" two slides together and re-photographing them with a slide duplicator. Much easier today to do with photoshop.

    This shot was taken for an international hair designer. I shot it in our studio against a white seamless backdrop. I used a ton of lights so I could shoot with fine grain film at f/8 for best depth of field with my 50mm lens.

    This was shot with my 24mm lens. This was a shoot for a sailing magazine. The guy who owns this boat sailed it from FL to the Carribean if memory serves. Nothing special about the shot, I just like it.

    The shot was taken at a pier in Port Charlotte Fl. Summer storm approaching. I doubt the pier is still standing after the hurrricane.

    One of my personal favorites. I was driving down this road at sunset when I passed this area. I love the composition and range of colors.

    EDIT: it appears as if the bottom of the pic has been cut off. I'll reload later.

    Thank you. I received a degree in photography about thirty years ago. However, I was only a professional still photog for the first five years after I graduated. The rest of the time I've been shooting film/video for television and/or corporate work. I still do a few still jobs (the hair stylist shoot being the latest) but most of the work I posted here goes back quite a few years ago. I really should start shooting more stills.

    I love the one of the grandpa fishing. Makes me miss my grandparents.

    Thanks. These were all taken with a older model Minolta SRT 101 or Minolta XGM. The lenses however are all at least 30 years old. The shots of the fisherman, little girl and house were shot on fujichrome. The hair model was shot with fuji negative. The moon boat was ektachrome and the sunset/trees was kodachrome.
