Winged Reveille

August 26th, 2016

D70 6951 DxO 400x650 Winged Reveille

As always seems to be the case, I’m wading my way through old shoots trying to catch up. I doubt if I’ll ever succeed, but I do seem to be gaining a bit of ground.

Today I’m posting photos from a shoot with the lovely model Reveille that we did back in December 2014. That’s right, I’m almost up to last year’s shoots.

As you can see, Reveille arrived at my studio with a new set of wings that she wanted photographed. So that was what we spent most of our time doing.

After we finished with the wings, I did this portrait of Reveille which I think came out pretty well.

But, for me at least, the real success for the day came when I brought out my new toy, a Lomo instant camera that uses the small-format Fuji instant film. I’m not a huge fan of this camera. It’s cheaply made and has controls that ignore the conventions of camera controls, so I have to figure them out every time I use the darn thing. But, when I can force the contrary contraption to do what I want it to do, it can sometimes produce good results. I think that’s the case with this photo.

Thanks Reveille.

The Environmental Portrait

August 19th, 2016

D20 3046 400x268 The Environmental Portrait

Two of my photographs have been selected by the juror for the next show, “The Environmental Portrait,” at The Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction, Vermont. It’s always a pleasure to have my work in one of the great shows that this gallery does. You can view the entire show at the link above. Or, better yet, if you are anywhere near the gallery, go see the show in person. You won’t be disappointed. If you can go to the artists reception I promise you’ll have fun.

Wrapped up Ayn

I have some stretchy tube material laying around at the studio. One day Ayn and I decided to play around with it and see what happened. Here’s what happened.

I just used the window light for these.

More of Lindsay

August 6th, 2016

D70 5273 DxO 400x604 More of Lindsay

Lindsay is a bold, beautiful young lady and she wasn’t afraid to do some of her aerial tricks without clothes. So I can now share more of Lindsay performing some of her aerial routine in the nude. She is a great performer.

I’ll be moving out of this studio by the end of this month. So it looks like there won’t be any future shoots with dance or aerial routines. I’m very pleased that I was able to do this work with Lindsay while I had the studio.

Aerial Lindsay

July 25th, 2016

D70 5182 DxO 400x482 Aerial Lindsay

Lindsay is a friend who I met when she was studying dance at my alma mater, Ohio University. After she graduated she moved near my studio and came in a few times to do studio dance photos. She also does aerial performances, so one time she brought her aerial gear to the studio and we set it up and did some shooting.

She is a wonderful performer, not to mention a very nice young woman. I’ll post some more of her in the next post here so you can see more of her.

Here are more photos from my outing at Blackhand Gorge with Ayn and Nathalia.

D70 4301 400x604 More Ayn and Nathalia

There is one particular spot in the gorge where I have challenged each model I’ve shot there to see what they can do to create an interesting pose. Ayn and Nathalia each did a great job with the challenge.
