worked pretty hard on this one. It took me most of a day to set up the set, think through the shot and decide where to place the lights.
The Genaray Full Moon 18″ Bi-Color LED Light is the latest edition to my home photography studio. It is a B&H exclusive. B&H has lots of house brands (which go by a variety of brand names.) I actually have many of their B&H exclusives in my studio> I’ve used some of them years. I’ve tested most of their stuff and in a way most reviewers do not. I have used the gear on actual photo shoots, including some assigned work and other work bound for publication. I have conducted many long term tests of their gear. This gets me really acclimated to the products.
One of my favorite events is Photoshop World. My pal Scott Kelby always does his best to pull the stops out on this event and this year is no different. It was so successful last year as a virtual event that Mr. Kelby decided to do it that way again this year.
If you haven’t figured it out yet – FIGPHOTOS (which stands for action figure photos) is my new moniker for such work. I want to completely separate it from my old job of photographing birds and wildlife. If you follow me because of that specific genre, i.e., birds and wildlife I apologize, but I have taken a new direction. Long story short – my health isn’t good enough for me to do regular field work anymore and the pandemic blew up most of that business anyway.
The Olympus OM-1 (In the future it will be called ‘OM System’) immediately brought my 68-year-old brain back to the days when I bought my first Olympus OM-system film camera. That camera changed my life. And if I were still a practicing, professional, bird photographer I have no doubt this camera would do likewise.

If you have a subscription to Adobe Cloud – you have free access to Adobe Creative Cloud Express. This used to be called Adobe Spark. I have no idea why they felt the need to change the name, but in any event – you have access to it and if you’re not familiar with it, think of it as CANVA on steroids. You can make all sorts of products using Express from business cards, to social graphics, scrolling web pages and even collages.
To me, minimalism is simply about focus – not camera focus, but focus on a single idea. Thinking about ONE thing – forcing my mind to go into almost a meditative state and zeroing in on one important theme or subject. Being careful and deliberate with all my choices – that’s part of the hallmark of minimalism for me.
