The Holidays

I must have been good this year because Santa delivered early and look at what he left under the tree...

These Boots are Made for Posin'

I wonder if Doc Martens would be interested in this image for an ad campaign?

Rafael P.

Remember that episode of Friends where Phoebe is very bendy... so is Rafael.

The model had a pose in a drawing he wanted to capture in a photograph.  I'm not sure we ever got the exact pose, but we did get a couple cool shots, I think.

And a few more from that shoot

More Lighting

So, I've figured out I  need more lighting, which is now here.  A few from before the new lights...

My First Art Show - (Portland)

 One of the men featured below told me about a "butt" art show in Portland.  So, on a whim I sent in two pics that I liked just asking if the style might be appropriate for their show.  The gallery emailed today saying they've accepted both photos.  These are the two photos:

Now that Summer is Gone...

It may be next year before I get back to some outdoor shoots.  The upside is you can do some interesting things with lighting.

I didn't like this one at first, then I tinkered with the contrast a little.

Usually the black and white is more artistic; but sometimes color is good, too.

Backside and Frontside

Forgot to include one of the backside shots earlier...

And a front side...

And one where the shadows are tinkered with more

A Couple More of Mr. Abs

So, going through the photos and tinkering with them (cropping, contrast, etc) is always such hard work -- having to endure the images, you know.  Guess one must sacrifice for the art...


I'm not sure about this last one.

Got Abs?

A preview from today's shoot.  I do think I like these more "landscape-y" ones.

Sometimes the color turns out sort of monochromatic and almost as artsy as B/W

It's a Secret

Probably not the best title, but that is just what I think of when I look at this one.

Weekend Shoot

Photos from yesterday.  New (for me) approach to lighting that yielded some good results.  Doesn't hurt that the model had broad shoulders.

A couple "landscapes"

Some others from the shoot...

Ever See a Finer Balustrade?

Now I ask you, have you ever seen a finer example of that particular classic architectural element known as the balustrade?

Anonymity of the Torso

So I got the focus issue figured out with the camera, but not in time for this photo shoot.  Ahh the torso shot... could be that cute boy or hunky man next door.

And then there's the question of, "Is this still artistic?"

And a couple more to finish it off.

Finally, the end...

Ba duh bump, thanks folks, here all week.
