Lone Cyrpus

Lone Cypress

This is the famous “Lone Cypress”  on the famous 17 mile drive, near Pebble Beach, California. I had to wait until the afternoon so I could silhouette the tree and get some specular highlights in the ocean.

This was originally shot on Ektachrome E100g slide film. It was then scanned into Lightroom where some minor adjustments were made and it as rendered to Black & White.

I’ve been asked if my images are for sale, most are, please ask.

I’m seeking gallery representation.

Nude with Her Arms Outstretched

Nude with Her Arms Outstretched

The model was dancing, celebrating herself.

Two lights was used, one was placed to the right of the frame and to the model’s side. The second light was placed to the left of the frame and very slightly in front of the model. This setup was used to help create strong shadows and highlights.

This is a digital image processed in Lightroom. Exposure and brightness were adjusted well as a moderate amount of retouching. The image was cropped and converted to monochrome via a Lightroom preset.
