1.                            MORE MONEY MORE PROBLEMS

    Every once in a while I get the opportunity to create portraiture in low key lighting. I’m truly fascinated with the ability to sculpt the talent with light.

  5. On this day I photographed 6’ 6 Frankie M in the studio first time I ever shot some one that tale lol. It was a challenge due to my short ceilings in my space,but we made it work by sitting him on the tallest stole I had.

    Hey people ,I’m in the studio chilling with male model-Aaron G working on a new project for_____Magazine. For this shoot I wanted that ill Noir look, so I used a 22” beauty dish which isn’t a defuser  I usually use on men. In this instance I rather like the fall off.

    My day at the Rubin Museum of Art.

    It was interesting to see photo manipulation done on images that were captured so long ago.

     
  11.   I gotta be honest when shooting male models the day goes by so quick. There’s no hair stylist/MUA needing to check the talent every 5 minutes or wardrobe adjustments every 2. Don’t get me wrong with out hair & make up I’d be lost…however male shoots just flow easier.

  12.     This morning as I sat down with my cup of coffee in hand, my book open ready to write about photos I created for my up coming show. I thought- like we all do….what’s my inspiration lol. After my third sip of that black love(coffee), I remembered reading a Judy Blume quote somewhere-"Writing is essential to our well being". Although I’m not a huge fan of this author in my adulthood I still managed to find some inspiration in her words. Essentially we can find inspiration all around us,so long as we take the time to find it!

     

  13. My day at -The Rubin Museum

        I was invited to accompany an associate to the Rubin Museum today  11/11/13 so I could experience photography on a whole other level. I really enjoyed the experience seeing gorgeous old photos and how they are taken,developed and printed. This is when I realize that’s one of my pet peeves about a lot of the worlds new DSLR user’s, most of them don’t know the HISTORY of photography. After all you have to know where it came to know where you’er taken it, at least I feel that way.

         Allegory and IllusionEarly Portrait Photography from South Asia presents approximately 120 photographs and a selection of albums, glass plate negatives, cabinet cards, cartes-de-visites, and postcards illustrating the rich tradition of portrait photography in India, Burma, Sri Lanka, and Nepal from the mid-19th century to early 20th century.

    These are original glass negatives,this is a long way from 35mm film and even longer from digital. 

     

  14. I need to write!

        It has recently become apparent to me that I don’t write like I used to. I received quite a few accolades for creative writing during my studies in school,why have I stop writing ? Then it came to me, I haven’t written anything  since my dad passed away 19 yrs. ago… he was one of my biggest fan. I guess at times it seems like my words are wasted on people. I’ve learned form a very young age to express my self through art also with the help of my farther.

         So at this juncture in my life I’ve decided or better yet understand I need to write more….Thanks dad I love you and miss you very much.

                                      Please bare with me people

    Among the millions of blogs on Tumblr, only a small number are contributors of original content: “the world’s creators”

    And if you’ve ever looked at Tumblr’s Explore Page you might notice that Photography is oddly absent.

    There’s #design, #art, #architecture and even #artists on tumblr — but no mention of anything related to the art of taking pictures with a camera. Even #film is a trap — it’s for movies, not analog photography!

    We don’t think this situation is acceptable. So let’s Fight it.

    We’d like to ask all original photographers on Tumblr to start putting the #photographers on tumblr tag on every single photo you post.

    Photographers deserve more recognition among the Creators on Tumblr. Hopefully, by using this tag we’ll help the entire community of Tumblr photographers get noticed — and maybe one day we will see that tag on the Tumblr Explore page too.

    Reblog this post and spread the word.

    Sincerely,
    Photographers on Tumblr
