Red Lips and Hazel Eyes

Red Lips and Hazel Eyes

Two Lights were used, one was placed to the left of the frame and slightly behind the model to keep the background light and the second was placed in front of the model  to the right of the frame for general illumination and modeling.

This is a digital image processed in Lightroom. The contrast and exposure were adjusted very slightly and then the image was cropped slightly..

Nude, Standing and Reaching

Nude, Standing and Reaching

The long lines of the model and her arched back make a striking pose.

A single light was used, it  was placed to the left of the frame and in front of the model. This was done to get strong highlights and deep shadows.

This is a digital image processed in Lightroom. Exposure and brightness were adjusted and some retouching was done. The image was rendered to a monochrome via a Lightroom Preset, and the image was cropped.

The idea for this image was to isolate the model in time and space by using a pinhole camera and using a black background. 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 Ilford Delta 3200 120 film and developed Rodinal Diluted to 1+50. The negative was scanned into Lightroom where it was cropped .

I Was experimenting with this stretchy fabric and had some interesting results.

Two lights were used, one was placed on the left of the frame and slightly behind the model and one on the right of the frame even with the model.

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

I was walking around near Brooklyn Lake, in the Snowy Range Mountains in Wyoming and came across this brook. The sky was looking as though it would start storming at any minute so I had to work quickly. This was one of a few images I was able to get before the skies opened up.

This was shot on Ektachrome G100e slide film. It was scanned into Lightroom where the contrast and exposure were adjusted. The Image was cropped slightly.

This is a great pose, it’s combination of long lines and the curvature of the models posture. It shows strength but also a certain softness.
