Frank Staffa Photography
My interest in film photography and astronomical photography started back in the early 70’s when I owned an old Minolta XD-11 35mm camera and a Criterion RV-6 Dynascope Newtonian Telescope. Later, in the late 70’s and early 80’s, I was working with an excellent German camera called Praktica, and with the help of my dad I learned how to develope and print my own photos the old fashioned way.
Today, I am a Nikon fan, and Nikon cameras and Celestron Telescopes are my first choice in digital and astronomical photography. Learning digital photography is a challenging and rewarding experience for me, and very different from the old film days.
I take pride in my work, and always try different ways of improving my craft.

One Final Thought on Post Processing;
If there’s one thing I dislike in digital photography, it’s how some photographers feel the necessity to post process every single shot they take to oblivion. They spend hours upon hours at their PC, and every shot takes a trip through “PhotoShop” and/or “Lightroom”, getting tweaked and peaked until it almost looks like an illusion instead of a photo. That may be fine for some photography situations, but not for weddings and events.
Years ago we didn’t have the luxury of digital processing, and we learned how to use the settings in our cameras to take a good photo. If you take a great shot, whether it be a portrait, group or landscape photo, over processing sometimes degrades the natural beauty of the original picture. I process only whats needed, and I don’t make photos look fake. Enhancing some of the colors in a photo is a wonderful thing, but over processing in my opinion ruins the shot. I have seen many photos from photographers who post their work on social networks such as facebook and alike, and many of the photos I see are so over processed they look more like a scene from an animated Disney movie.
My methods are simple;
1. Take a great shot
2. Make it better by enhancing fine detail
3. Keep it real
This process works best for me, and is how I prefer to do my work. I don’t create illusions, that’s simply not my style. I’m a photographer not a magician, and what I create are beautiful photos that you will treasure for a lifetime.

Our family photos turned out great! Frank is a great guy and was very flexible with the entire process….especially since we ranged from 4 months to 90 years old! Very reasonably priced and the turn around time was perfect. Highly recommended!
Frank photographed a wedding I attended and was probably the most professional and involved photographer I have ever seen. He made sure every potential moment was captured from ceremony to reception and then some. The finished photographs I’ve seen so far have been nothing short of amazing and I am eager to see the rest. I am recommending Frank to all of my friends and family with upcoming events that need to be captured and look forward to seeing more of his work.
