More Old Stuff

Sunday, December 31st, 2006

I could say this one is for my good friend Dave Rudin who asked for more old film photos, but I had actually planned to post it today before he commented on yesterday’s photo. It’s from around the same time as the last photo. Again, the copyright notice refers to when I first posted it […]

I’ve been spending some time looking through some of my older work. This one is from many years ago when I started doing figure work again after a break of some years. It’s a simple photo, single light source in my studio. At this time I was just simply exploring light and the figure to […]

Yin Yang

Friday, December 29th, 2006

Here’s a real old one. Some of you may be able to identify the model by her tattoo. It’s Nancy Freshour from quite a few years ago. In fact, this is so old it was shot on film. Imagine that! I lit it with a single strobe fired through a cookie that I had made […]

More Triangles

Thursday, December 28th, 2006

How many triangles can you find in this photo? This was shot in my studio a while back. The model is Gia. I worked with her several times, but it’s been a while. I have several photos of Gia that I am very happy with, but this may be the best of them. Just taking […]

Shelly under a bridge

Wednesday, December 27th, 2006

This photo of Shelly was taken about a year and a half ago during my first shoot with her. She is in the Tar River under a bridge. I’ve often found good light and settings under bridges. I think this one worked very well. A beautiful model doesn’t hurt either. I like the light, the […]

Triangular Kris

Tuesday, December 26th, 2006

Triangles are fun to play with in compositions. Especially when the light offers them to you. The female figure, of course, is full of triangular possibilities. Here I was photographing Kris in an empty building owned by a photographer friend in New Albany, Indiana, across the river from Louisville. The light was doing interesting things […]

In the middle

Sunday, December 24th, 2006

Here’s a studio shot in between the extremes of the last two posts. This photo was actually done on assignment for a magazine, one of the very few times there has been a commercial application for my figure photography. It was used to illustrate a story on back pain in a national women’s magazine. The […]

High Key

Saturday, December 23rd, 2006

This is a studio shot of Nemesis from a while back. Several tattoos back, in fact. Couldn’t do this shot with her now without a lot of photoshopping. Here it’s just high key lighting and exposure with a bit of adjusting in photoshop as you would do in the darkroom when printing a negative. I […]

Low Key

Friday, December 22nd, 2006

Like most everyone I’m very busy with holiday things this time of year. It will be that way for the next couple weeks, but I’ll try to post as much as I can. I’ve decided to post some of my older studio work, for a change of pace. This is a low key shot of […]

Red on Black

Wednesday, December 20th, 2006

Red on black is a special color combination for me. There’s a lot of symbolism there, especially for someone like me who grew up and lived in Appalachia. It’s the symbol for blood on coal. I’ve used it a lot in my photos because it always has an emotional response for me, and maybe for […]
