Highlights of My Career & Interests
Earl Seigfred Collection of Early American Hand-blown Glass
Joint photography project with a friend and fellow photographer, Larry Gregory, to document the largest known private collections of American glass for publication & exhibition.
Exhibition of the Seigfred Glass Collection
We completed the photography, processing and printing of the entire collection in about 1 year. The challenge was photographing the light and dark glass together, bringing out the color of some almost opaque pieces, and showing the pattern or cut-work. This exhibit included 65 prints, which subsequently toured several glass museums and the George Eastmen House. Today the prints are in the Corning Glass archive.
Antiques Magazine published B&W Illustrations of the Earl Seigfred Collection
Original photography was all color, but I photographed an additional 12 illustrations in B&W specifically for publication.
Photo-Posterization, Kodak Publication E-93
While instructing at Kodak's Training Center, I developed a method of Posterization, using tonal separation techniques to render areas of a image that could be assigned false color to stimulate the creative juices. I wrote the text and illustrated the procedure for publication.
Electronics Kits and Modules for Model Animation, Control, and Special Effects
I design and build an assortment of electronics for use with Model Railroading and Dioramas.
