One of my favorites from this shoot— just a nice simple portrait. Making it look easy is the hard part, really.

If You Don’t Believe in Science, Please Stop Using Its Services

For example, science is why we have the internet, among other things. Perhaps there’s a cabin in the woods with no indoor plumbing, heating, or electricity you could consider living in? It might a be short life and brutish, but at least you could live by your principles of refusing to consider evidence and using critical thinking skills in peace.

Anyway, since this kind of disinformation is part of the reason we’re here— still in lockdown and watching people die— I think it’s important to respond. Even when I know the comment will be deleted and ignored.

What does it mean to be a natural light photographer? It means that the brick wall of the underpass near the parking garage of the historic city center you are supposed to be shooting in ends up being one of your best locations of the day. Whoot!

Operation_mj (IG) is always a lot of fun to shoot, and I never know who exactly he will be or be with. In this case, it was a last minute Halloween shoot in our local historical cemetery (we’ve got a piece of the Maine!) with Rukiahitachiin (IG) as mash ups of Beetlejuice and the Nightmare before Christmas.

I’d like to say this was planned— that we carefully arranged her hair to give a transformation effect to her left eye. But we did not, this is just the result of a perfect hair toss.

Controversial Commentary

Ever notice that people who cry censorship when not allowed an open forum for their views on a non-government, private website rarely allow an open forum on their own non-government, private website?

Of course, I censor comments all the time— my blog, my choice. But I also don’t whine about being censored on Instagram because Instagram wants to stay out of American politics (and really, who can really blame them?), so I can live with this mild dichotomy in my life.
