I’ve seen this idea in other photo, though usually it’s fabric attached to a backdrop stand. This is wrapping paper attached to a fence. I really like this— I’m looking forward to (hopefully) trying this technique more in the future.

I’m often jealous of European photographers who have access to amazing locations like castles and henges that are not Stonehenge. And for good reason. But then I remind myself that the portrait isn’t about the location, it’s about the person. If you do that part right, then an empty schoolyard can become magical

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

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.

2020 Photoshoots: Fourteen

Is it October? Then we’re back in the cemetery. This time with Miss_Ichor (IG). She’s an amazing model, as you can see, and also make-up artist, as you can also see.

I don’t think my idea quite worked as well as I had hoped. I think the problem was a lack of more. More wings, more roses, more string. Next time!
