More Crimson in the Gorge

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

No time to write tonight.  And it may be a while before I’m able to post again.  Lots going on that you’ll hear about here eventually. Meanwhile, here are a few more photos of the fantastic Crimson Reign from our shoot in the gorge.  Enjoy.

Crimson on the Rocks

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

After we shot at the quarry Crimson and I hiked to some of the wonderfully colored rock cliffs that make up this gorge.  This despite the cut on her foot that she got when she slipped on some of the rocks around the quarry.  I cleaned up and bandaged the cut using my first aid […]

A Different Tone for the Gorge

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

A couple months ago my friend Cherrystone told me about a model who was going to be visiting our area who he thought I might like to work with.  As soon as I saw Crimson Reign’s portfolio I knew she could be a great addition to the project I’m working on at a beautiful gorge […]

In the Woods with Ayn

Friday, July 20th, 2012

I’m actually getting caught up a bit with my editing.  These photos of Ayn were shot just last month.  We went out one morning to one of my favorite local spots to see what we could come up with.  And it was a good shoot, as you can see.  I hope to be working with […]

In The Studio with Sugar Dumpling

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Sugar Dumpling  was good enough to come by the studio so I could play around with a bunch of lenses on the Olympus.  Of course, being the totally organized person that I am, I failed to take notes on which lens I was using for which photos, and since there is no lens data in the […]

Jake and Elwood

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

A little change of pace.  Last night Jake and Elwood were playing in the park near my house.  I stuck the old 85mm f/1.8 on the Olympus E-PL1 to see what I could do with it.  Despite forgetting to go put out chairs at 6 a.m., I was still able to find some good spots […]

A Favorite Waterfall with a New Model

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

I’m slowly getting caught up with editing shoots.  I’ve finally made it into work I did in May.  This was my first shoot with a new model for me, Sugar Dumpling.  I’d been looking for some new models to work with since several of my favorites had moved away or were not available for other […]

And More from Savannah

Saturday, July 7th, 2012

Find a semi-horizontal tree limb over some quiet water in a shady spot in the early morning light.  Add a beautiful, talented nude model.  How could you go wrong?  Thanks to Sarah, this time it worked out better than usual. Of course, every once in a while, after working with me for a while, one […]

There’s an Empty Place in my Life Tonight

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

That’s a very old photo of a very old friend at his very old house.  It’s a bad scan of a print from the 1970s.  Actually, I don’t think it’s a scan…I think I just shot a photo of the print with a digital camera.  The digital file has been around a long time, so […]

Fun With Tree Roots

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

Uprooted trees can provide great places to pose the female figure.  We found a good one when Antoine and I were shooting Sarah and Dyaphanye in Savannah. The sun was coming up fast and bright and hot, so we were dealing with that challenge while working on these. As always, it really helps to have […]
