All of these images were taken with a Nikon 50mm f/1.4 lens fit with a close-up filter and used wide open for a very shallow depth-of-field.
|The Alpa 9d with 24mm Angenieux lens, a rare and beautiful combo from circa 1964. I never used these professionally, but always admired their looks, quirky mechanics, and workmanship.|
|This is the last rangefinder to carry the Contax name, a G2 made from 1996-2005. It was a very stylish machine and still fun to use.|
|Hassleblad 500CM with 150mm Sonnar lens. This is the camera I used for beauty advertising photography I did in the 1980's.|
|A collection of old Weston light meters all of which have been re-calibrated so I can use them when shooting with the old cameras.|
|My first serious professional SLR camera was the Nikon Ftn from 1968-71 shown here with a 58mm Noct-Nikkor f/1.2 lens.|
|Polaroid SX-70 camera circa 1970's with a photo from it taken with the new film available from the "Impossible Project".|
|Sub-miniature, or "spy" cameras: in the foreground the first Minox model, a Riga circa 1940. Behind is a Tessina, made in Switzerland since 1960. It takes actual 35mm film.|
