Claudine at Starved Rock

Friday, July 30th, 2010

Here’s a shot of Claudine out at Starved Rock State Park, that I did a while back when I was up in Chicago.  I shot this when I was up there for the opening of my show at Gallery Provocateur.  That show has ended and I’ll be back in Chicago next week to pick up […]

Flower Child

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

I’ve been enjoying shooting with Kelsey again.  She is such a wonderful model that I always want to shoot with her, no matter what else is going on.  Unfortunately, what else that has been going on every time we’ve shot so far this summer is bright, hot sunlight.  Not the ideal light for what I’m […]

Wet Angie

Saturday, July 24th, 2010

It’s way too hot.  I has been way too hot for way too long.  So, to cool things off, here’s the lovely Angie getting doused in a local waterfall.  I’ve shot several models at this waterfall, but never gotten a photo I was really satisfied with.  I think this one comes close, but I guess […]

Angie in the Sun

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Angie was in the studio a few days ago when I saw this light.  She wasn’t there for a shoot, but she humored me and took off her clothes and did this pose for me.  I just can’t resist when I see a light pattern and quality that I want to photograph.  It’s nice to […]

Another Point of View

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

Brooke has put up a post on her blog about the whole “posing, sucking in the stomach” issue as seen from her perspective as a model.  There are some good comments on her post too.  You should all go over there and take a look.

Moving Forward

Saturday, July 17th, 2010

First let me say publicly what I’ve already said privately to Mo.  I did not intend my last post to come off as “snarky.”  I was trying to be light and funny.  Obviously I failed.  I probably shouldn’t have written it quickly between trips to the hospital, or should have let it sit for a […]

Not Politically Correct

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back here to respond to Mo’s comment.  It’s been a busy time.  The long drive back from Vermont and trying to catch up on things from being gone almost two weeks…then my son had to go into the hospital.  Nothing too serious, but still much more […]

Suck it in (or up)

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

OK…there’s Brooke on the north shore with her stomach sucked in to get this started.  Sorry Brooke. Thanks for the comments Dave and Robert.  And thanks for asking the original questions, Mo. Here’s the gist of what Mo said in her comment: Why do we frequently see the nude model with her tummy sucked in? It’s not […]

Sweatin’ With An Oldie

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

Sorry for the lack of updates.  It’s not my fault.  I’m in Vermont visiting my mother-in-law.  Her 95th birthday was yesterday.  There is no air conditioning at her house, which is usually not an issue in Vermont.  But this record heat wave the eastern part of the U.S. is experiencing is here now too.  It’s […]

A Perfect Dilemma

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

Usually when I’m working outdoors and I find a good location I look around for a little bit and find the photo at that spot that works for me.  I often shoot a few variations and sometimes back at the computer doing editing I’ll find that the one I like best is not the one […]
