Dentist Cares For HIV Patients

This is from an unpublished photo essay I worked on in 1989 at the Infectious Disease Clinic at Temple University. I spent a few days following around Dr. Michael Glick, who had started the IDC a year earlier. No one in the Philadelphia region was offering dental care to HIV patients at the time. Click and his staff were the only ones doing so that I had found at that time. Here are some archive images, from way back then.

Long Before Teen Mom on MTV

Long before Teen Mom hit MTV screens, way back in 1989, while working for the Philadelphia Inquirer I spent a few days at William Tennent High School in Warminster, Pennsylvania making pictures of a program geared to keep Teen Moms in school. The school, and mostly, Centennial School District, set up a day care program so young women that had children while in high school could keep on attending school and get their diploma. It was pretty simple. The girls would drop of their child before classes started, then go to school. They could come back to visit the children any time during the day. Then would pick them up after school and in some cases, actually do their homework in the day care while waiting for the bus ride home.

Here are some of the images from the package I did in 1989. Images were shot with Tri-X film and probably pushed to 1600 ISO in most interiors with Nikon F3’s as camera of choice.

Black & White Goose Hunt in Buckingham, Pennsylvania Shot on Film

 (William Thomas Cain)On November 2, 1991 from about 4am until 1pm, Walter Naedele and I spent time with a group of geese hunters as they sought their prey. It was a time when I shot with film cameras.

I remember it being really chilly that morning and loading my Nikon F3 cameras with the Kodak T-MAX 3200 was a bitch. My hands were too chilly to feel anything. After a bit of a struggle the cameras were loaded. T-MAX 3200….what a film. It was almost pitch black when we arrived at 4am. The hunters planned to catch the gases at sunrise, when they were foraging for early morning food. I had and still have a disdain for hunting, but that was my assignment. So, I had to make the images. Besides, if I didn’t someone else would.

That T-MAX 3200 was push processed to 6400 ISO and enabled me to make some really early morning pictures in the duck blind where we were hidden. The images look a bit grainy to me, but worked well considering the lighting conditions.

Once the sun started to come up I was able to switch over to trusty old TRI-X 400 speed film. I do believe that I push processed that to 1600 ISO. Anyhow, here are some of the pictures and a picture of one of the Nikon F3’s and a contact sheet on a light table.

Cooper Digs Snow

On Sunday, Cooper had a field day in the snow. This little dude loves, loves, loves playing in the snow. His biggest bit of fun is when he gets to play “snowballs”. For that, I make a nice sized snowball and throw it. he chases and tries to catch it in the air. He then proceeds to eat the dean thing. If he can’t catch it, he will bury his head into the snow until he comes up with it. Not just any bit of snow, but he will find the snowball that I threw his way.
Very cool smart little doggie.

PennEast Pipeline Protest

One of the assignments I photographed yesterday was a PennEast protest in Upper Black Eddy, Pennsylvania. The protesters crossed the Milford bridge into Milford, New Jersey in opposition to the 114 mile stretch of pipe that will run from Luzerne County in Pennsylvania to Mercer County in New Jersey.

Just got back from shooting a drone protest. I brought along my old Nikon D1 and after I finishing with the assignment, I picked up the D1 to play around by making some B&W images.

Ring Flash Pocket Wizards

My old friend Jon was selling a bunch of Pocket Wizards. Went over today and
picked up all of them. Then proceeded to play with them the rest of the day.
For those who don’t know what Pocket Wizards do, they are remote triggers
for flash or cameras which enable the photographer to not be tethered to a cable.
I most always trip over my own stinking cable, so this is a great thing. No more
tripping and knocking things over.

Cooper Goes to the Veterinarian BW17D1 03272014

Day 3:
On Thursday morning our dog Cooper, the cocker spaniel, came into the house after his morning walk with a bloody paw. My wife examined the paw and saw that he had badly broken a nail. We’re not sure how this happened, but he most likely got it stuck on the fence as he chased a squirrel in the yard this am. We bandaged him and took him to the veterinarian. The vet clipped the broken nail and cleaned the wound. Then sent him on his way with some meds (the size of horse pills) which he has to take for 10 days. He’s fine, but a little sore.

More Black & White Silver Lake Park Dover, Delaware

One of the classes I’m teaching this semester is a Black & White Digital Photography class at Wilmington University‘s Dover, Delaware campus. We were looking for somewhere to shoot and one of the students suggested we head over to Silver Lake Park. Open space, tress, even a cemetery next door made the place sound awesome for black and white. It didn’t disappoint. While the students were shooting images looking for good, fully toned black and white images, I spend the time making pix that were a little more high in contract, because that was to be the assignment for the following week. Here are some of those images.
