Red on Black

December 20th, 2006

DSC 9473 Red on BlackRed 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 other viewers. I hope so, anyway.

Of course, this isn’t coal and it isn’t blood. But the colors still work for me. And the pale skin adds something else to the mix.

This is Jessica getting dirty and scratched by volcanic gravel outside Flagstaff, Arizona. I took her up to the volcano there because of her red hair and pale skin. I knew it would look interesting on that black volcanic rock. We got a late start on the shoot and had to rush, so I didn’t get everything I had in mind, but I think this one works.

Jessica is a fun model to work with. She knows how to work hard and takes a very professional approach to shoots.
