Dietz #80 Blizzard Cold Blast Lantern

Does using the term "better late than never" really make a difference?  I don't even have a good reason why it has taken me so long to get back to this lantern.  It is the second lantern I received for Christmas.  My son was very proud of himself for going to an antique store and finding this for me.  In my head I was afraid of this one.  It is taller than anything else I have tried to photograph with my indoor setup.  I had to get a little creative.  It definitely turned into a Rube Goldberg type setup to achieve what I wanted for this lantern.

I wanted to improve the lighting setup.  This beautiful old lantern deserved a little better presentation than I was getting with my previous images.  I utilized some natural light from a window and added a few fill flashes to highlight the details.  I needed a few attempts to figure out what I was doing and to get the look I wanted.  I'm quite happy with the results.  Let me know what you think...

Welcome to my little corner of the internet where I will be chronicling my exploration into my photography obsession. I do not have a specific topic or style so the posts will be eclectic and random. I hope that as this site grows you will see improvements in both my photography and my writing.

Take a look around and hopefully you'll find something interesting. Feel free to borrow any image you like as long as it is used for personal use and not for a commercial endeavor. I would hope you respect my creativity and will not alter the image in any way. If you do find something you wish to use, please include a link back to my blog with appropriate credit. Thanks!
