Wow, that radio was made by Wells-Gardner Co., founded in 1925. Still in business, headquartered in McCook, IL.

Do you own the radio?

Looks like he learned his group posing setup at the police lineup school of photography.

I have used two useful techniques for groups. First is the simple close your eyes and countdown to zero.  More complicated involves a balloon. The balloon trick I developed for public ("street") photography, but it works with a posed group.

I've imposed a moratorium on buying anything DSLR related, but this looks like it can be fun. Probably get one next spring.

I haven't been there since the seventies, but if you like lit/history, there is the O.Henry House.

I'm no fan of the Digital Rev videos, but they do one thing very well -- their series on pro photographers using cheap cameras.

It being the Halloween season...

I just realized I don't have a decent jack-o-lantern picture. The best I have is this hastily done thing with a little P&S from five years or so ago. Anyone have any good pictures? I'm going out looking the next week or so, see what I can scare up, so to speak.

Interesting reasons why one pro photographer moved to Sony mirrorless from Nikon...

Makes me wonder how far this will go before Nikon and Canon get some convincing product into the marketplace.
