You May Emerge From This Moment

I’ve seen images like this done many times.  You put a model on a riser, wrap a long draping fabric around her waist, and create the illusion of extended height.  It’s a compelling illusion.  So I asked Caitie if we could try to do something similar and our take on it might be something slightlyContinue reading “You May Emerge From This Moment”

How Much Longer

I’ve always loved the idea of shooting from above and when I had the chance to shoot in a large studio space with a custom built table like this, I needed to make this happen.  From a technical standpoint, it was a bit complex to set up and execute.  The camera was mounted to aContinue reading “How Much Longer”

New 55 Film – Round 2

I’m finally getting back to shooting a bit more and had an afternoon scheduled with an art model yesterday.  I wanted desperately to give my stock of New 55 Film another chance after I’d disassembled, cleaned, and reassembled my film holder.  The results I got were much better and far more promising than my earlier experiments,Continue reading “New 55 Film – Round 2”

Rhus – Ferns, Rossland

The post holiday break has given me a chance to revisit some of my old work.  There’s a lot there thats been passed over in favor of the one or two I thought were perfect when I first looked through them.  But there are some that might be less than perfect (slightly soft focus inContinue reading “Rhus – Ferns, Rossland”

Keira Grant – Pabatco Hodaka

There are a lot of things that I like about this photo.  The graceful model, that interesting sign that I knew nothing about when I saw the side of the building, and the light is soft and light.  There’s real meaningful contrast between the model and the background.  It all comes together to form theContinue reading “Keira Grant – Pabatco Hodaka”

Keira Grant – Lock

Working images again feels cathartic on some level. Back to what I’ve always loved to do.  12:25am, listening to some of my favorite music, thinking bed might be more than a few minutes off again.  Where do these images come from?  It doesn’t often matter, just that some photons passed through a transparent medium ontoContinue reading “Keira Grant – Lock”

Keira Grant – Spiral

It’s been quite some time since I’ve had the chance to explore some figure studies with a model. So, I carved out some time this weekend to work with an old friend who was in town and booked a slot at Frog Hollow Studios.  Located on the Main Line in the Philadelphia suburbs, the studio is quiteContinue reading “Keira Grant – Spiral”
