Contact Sheet


As a photographer I enjoy looking at other photographer’s contact sheets.  It shows the thought process and progression of a photo shoot.  You can still do this with digital but for some reason it is just not the same.

Loyd Sandgren shot quite a bit of professional wrestling in the early 1960′s and this is a contact sheet from one roll of film.  He probably shot this with his medium format Rolleiflex camera.  What puzzles me is since it is a square format camera, why do the images keep switching from vertical to horizontal images?

Just Point And Shoot!

Southbank Circa 1948


The Jacksonville skyline with an undeveloped Southbank in the foreground. The Main Street Bridge was only 7 years old when this photo was taken and was one of only two auto bridges across the St. Johns River to downtown.  The other bridge was the old Acosta Bridge.

“This photo shows what the Southside of Jacksonville looked like in 1948.  This was after all the old shacks were torn down but before the park was built.” LS
