Cartography and Other Losses

I remember seeing Nathalia a long time ago when my friend Chip Willis photographed her.  I’ve always wanted the chance to work with her and our paths finally crossed.

Pieces Make the Whole

The second of two shoots this weekend.  Sabryna was nice enough to come and work with me in the studio and create some artful figure work.  Digital capture with the Fuji X-T2.

You May Emerge From This Moment

I’ve seen images like this done many times.  You put a model on a riser, wrap a long draping fabric around her waist, and create the illusion of extended height.  It’s a compelling illusion.  So I asked Caitie if we could try to do something similar and our take on it might be something slightly different.  We tried many different poses and so many of them are beautiful and engaging, but for some reason this morning, this particular shot took a hold of me and I ran with it.

Hope you enjoy this morning’s artful adventure!

Invisible you come to me, quietly
Stay beside me
Whisper to me “Here I am”
And the loneliness fades

Torso Study

I haven’t had a chance to work with the new Fuji camera with my studio lights yet.  And given my setup at home, there’s very limited space, so we pushed the dining room table out of the way and set up a single small soft box with a grid.  The grid tends to give the soft light a bit more contrast and punch and is great for sculpting dimensional shadows.
