Inspired by Simplicity

Sometimes the simplest set-up can result in dramatic results.  I feel that has been achieved here with beautiful figure model (Anonymous).  The idea was to backlight the model in soft light with just a reflector from the front for subtle fill.  This way, I could maintain the desired amount of contrast to accentuate the lines created by Ms. Juliana.

A Study In Curves

I find it interesting how the esthetic qualities of curves seems to have universal appeal.  From classic sculpture to modern architecture, curves have been used in art throughout history.  I often wonder why we are attracted to the fluid energy of smooth shapes found in curves.  Perhaps it is a reminder of our own organic roots.  Nevertheless, I truly enjoy the discovery of what shapes can be formed while working art models.

The Eyes Have It

Working with model Trishi (2010), I was struck by her wonderful facial features.  I chose to emphasize this with natural light and shallow depth of field.

Living In A Bubble

This image is from a 2009 series with Chicago based model Claudine.  I really enjoy exploring model’s interactions with various shapes.  The fluidity of Claudine’s posing worked so well with this unusual prop.
