Here are just a few of the many images from the afternoon. The first is a shot of Joe at his loom, working on a new weaving utilizing only unprocessed fleece as the weft. It was absolutely full of lanolin.
Just for grins, we used the wool in a few more photographs
The image below was shot with a 70-200mm AF-S Nikkor lens. I absolutely love it because, in addition to providing great mid-range telephoto options, it offers superb "bokeh" for portrait shots. Ken Rockwell has an excellent online piece explaining bokeh - the way lens elements render out-of-focus points of light.
No doubt you will read more about Joe Bacon in future posts, but I wanted to give you an initial look at the artist and the man.
until next Monday,
a passion for the image
