Testing Equipment at the Tyson studio

Made it out to the Tyson studio this afternoon, 62° outside 45° inside, still it was warm enough to get the new gear I've been buying the past month on eBay all fired up and checked out. When my Broncolor power pack went out, I sold off all my Broncolor gear and reinvested the proceeds into new/used Speedotron gear.

The Lost Model Who Found Me

I just got an interesting email today from a woman who said I photographed her nude at Tyson in 1999-98. She said she never saw the photos and could she see them, she might want to buy one.

Though some sort of miracle I did enter her name into my data base of film I’ve shot and indeed it was 1999 and she was a department model and yes, I shot 11 rolls of 120 of her out at Tyson. I remember she was paid to model for my by the department/school and in those cases I do not give the models any photos.

We’re going to meet in the future to look at the contact sheets, perhaps she’ll buy a couple prints.
I just wonder, what made her think of tracking me down and asking about these photos all these years later. People are funny about nostalgia and their own histories.
