Jordan is a Nebula nominated SF author, but this image was taken for the Hearts on Our Sleeves project, portraits of transgender and gender expansive community. It’s 2023, and I was hoping that the fight for human rights would be tilted toward more acceptance, but sadly, LBGTQ+ and trans people are used as boogeymen for certain people to advance their agenda. Because of the Pandemic, I hadn’t been able to find time or the subjects to photograph for this project. Hopefully this will be a good restart.

… and with flash! Look at this beauty. An 8×10 barrel “Gundlach” single meniscus lens on a Gibellini AG810 with Sinar Copal shutter and modern (Godox) flash. Works great. I 3-d printed the lens adapter board. As long as the lens is not super heavy ( > 3 lbs) and the back cells are not too deep, the setup works great.
Stir crazy and did some calligraphy on Sat and then went out to take photos on Sunday. These are the best ones….
