Compressed Nude shot with a Pinhole Camera

Compressed Nude shot with a Pinhole Camera

The idea for this image was to isolate the model and emphasize loneliness. The image of the was kept small to further emphasize isolation from her surroundings.

For this image the model had to remain virtually motionless for 15 seconds.

This was shot with a homemade pinhole camera. This image is not very sharp as characteristic of pinhole cameras however the three dimensionality  and tonality of the image are surprising.

One light was used, one was placed to the right of the frame and to the side of the model.

This image was shot on Kodak Tri -X Professional 120 film and developed in a staining developer. The negative was scanned into Lightroom where it was cropped .

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

Soft Focus Nude on a Box

Soft Focus Nude on a Box

I decided this image, from a series of images of my model on a box, would work well with a softer focus. I turned the autofocus on the camera and lens off so after focusing I could back off a little and create a softer smoother image.

One light was used, it was placed to the right  of the frame and a little in front of the model. The light was placed so the model would illuminated from one side while the rest of her body would in shadow.

This is a digital image processed in Lightroom. The contrast and exposure were adjusted and the image was rendered to a Black & White via a Lightroom Preset. The image was cropped slightly.

Dancing in the Smoke

Dancing in the Smoke

The long lines created by the model and the arc of her torso and arms make a strong statement. The feeling is further enhanced by the smoke.

One light was used, it was placed to the left of the frame. The light was placed so the model would illuminated from one side while the rest of her body would melt into darkness.

This is a digital image processed in Lightroom. The contrast and exposure were adjusted and the image was rendered to a Black & White via selective fesaturation and then cropped.

I looking out over a lake on an overcast day and saw a muted reflection on the water and knew it would be perfect for  another in my series of antique postcard images.

Reclining Nude

Reclining Nude

This was shot with a pinhole camera that I built. This image is not very sharp however the three dimensionality  and tonality of the image are surprising. The images that pinhole cameras make have an ephemeral quality that can’t be made anyother way (that I Know of),

One light was used, one was placed to the right of the frame and to the side of the model.

This image was shot on Kodak Tri -X Professional 120 film and developed in a staining developer. The negative was scanned into Lightroom where it was cropped and the contrast and exposure were adjusted.

Standing Nude

Standing Nude

Notice the long curving line of the model and how elegantly she stands.

One light was used, it was placed to the right  of the frame and a little in front of the model. The light was placed so the model would illuminated from one side while the rest of her body would fade into the shadow and cast a shadow on the background.

This is a digital image processed in Lightroom. The contrast and exposure were adjusted and the image was rendered to a Black & White via a Lightroom Preset. The image was cropped.
