Red on Black

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

Put together a black fishnet body stocking and a true red head, add a little classic figure lighting in the studio…

Where do paparazzi fit in to the discussion of photographer’s rights and access? Are they news photographers? I’m not so sure I have the answer to that question. But I can tell you that I have absolutely no interest in their subject matter or the photos they produce. I’m frankly appalled by all the attention […]

More Nola

Monday, January 29th, 2007

I hope you aren’t getting tired of Nola. I know I’m not. Every time I go back to those photos I find more that I love. Here’s another one. After spending the first half of today going through a fairly unpleasant medical test, I’m not really feeling like writing a long essay today. Maybe tomorrow […]

Spirit Stealing

Saturday, January 27th, 2007

Now that I’ve talked about some general issues of photography and access vs. privacy I thought I’d tell you a bit about my personal views on the subject and how I came to arrive at them over 40-years as a photographer. Many years ago I used to do street photography. I was fairly successful at […]

Photography and Privacy

Friday, January 26th, 2007

Well, that last post lead to some interesting discoveries. First, someone is actually reading this stuff! That’s pretty frightening. Remember what I said in the last post about photographers usually not being able to express themselves in a comprehendible manner… But, Morgan makes a very valid point, one I certainly would not dispute. The conflict […]

Photography and Freedom

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

I saw Joel Meyerowitz last night. He was giving a talk about his work at Ground Zero in NYC during the cleanup. He has a book out of the images he made there. The story of how he came to do those photos was compelling and had some important messages for all of us. It’s […]

More Nola in the attic

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

Nola’s attic was a rich location. I love incorporating compositional elements like those offered by this spot with the variety of light that was available here. Add in a beautiful nude figure and a very nice model who is fun to work with and I’m having a great time. That’s how this shoot was. I […]

Here’s another shot of Nola from Vermont. One of the joys of shooting on locations is finding new backgrounds and seeing how they can be worked into compositions that mean something to me. The attic of Nola’s house, though unheated, was a great spot for shooting and we did quite a few photos up there. […]
