Another way of looking at color. This is Theda in a nice upscale hotel room in New York City about three years ago. This was my first shoot, first meeting, with Theda and she really impressed me. She is a very talented model and is great to work with. I’ve since been back to NYC […]

Light and The Wave

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

The Wave is a special place. In the red rock desert on the Utah-Arizona border, it’s hard to find if you don’t know exactly where you are going. It’s so popular that the Bureau of Land Management requires that specific reservations be made months before a visit. Visitors are limited to 12 each day. And […]

I’ve become known for my photos of nude models outdoors. This is one of the photos that originally started creating that reputation. I’ve been a photographer, and I’ve photographed nudes, for far longer than I like to think about…much longer than many of my current models have been alive. But it was this shoot in […]

Model Xochitl posing at Vasquez Rocks outside Los Angeles. This was shot last March. It was a cold and windy day. Totally unlike normal LA weather. In fact, shortly before we did this photo, Xochitl had posed in snow that was falling in another area near LA. We had to change our plans for the […]

Speed Holga

Friday, November 24th, 2006

I know some photo-graphers who work with Holga cameras. Some of them do truly wonderful photos with that tool. I worked with Diana F cameras many, many years ago and never really enjoyed the limitations and inability to predict results with that camera. But I do appreciate the fun that can be had with a […]

Shelly wades

Thursday, November 23rd, 2006

Happy Thanksgiving. It’s a beautiful day. Here is Shelly wading in a lake in North Carolina on a chilly day. The water was still warm, though, so she said it wasn’t really a problem. Another use of “challenging light.” Direct sunlight, but this was later in the day when there was some direction to the […]

Shelly in the woods

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2006

Here’s Shelly again in the North Carolina woods. She did a great job looking beautiful and comfortable when it was fairly cold while we were shooting. It was a sunny day which creates some limitations and some opportunities for photography. Many photographers talk about the “golden hour,” that time a lovely light near the end […]

I’m uploading this panorama again because it seems the one below won’t open to a larger image. This really needs to be viewed larger to see it well. I hope this one will work right. I haven’t been able to post since I got home because of a screw up by my ISP. For the […]

On the road again

Monday, November 20th, 2006

Shelly called to say she has a sore throat and doesn’t feel like shooting again today. I’m sure it has nothing to do with her wading around in a lake nude yesterday… So, since I don’t have a shoot today, I’m going to make the drive back home and end this trip one day earlier […]

If you have not lived or at least visited the south, you may not know about kudzu. Everyone should know about it. Introduced in the 1930s as a great way to control erosion, it has taken over the south and in some ways defines the boundaries of the old south even more clearly than the […]
