Normally one item will set me off in a direction and this image is no different.  Pete had the white t-shirt and hat, it reminded me of an Italian fisherman, not sure why?  I went around the studio and found the leather fishing net and the pole.  I bought the net at Big Lots (for […]

In The Round

I think this set up has high impact for the money and time.  I went to Home Depot and bought a large round cheap light fixture.  You take it apart but leave the wires attached and simply plug it in.  The bulb doesn’t get that hot and the model can touch it.  The power is […]

I love this chair.  I can’t remember where I picked up this little chair, road side pit stop, dumpster dive, loading dock snag, but I know when I spotted it I had sweet love.  The seat has since broken at a workshop a couple of years ago though and is totally missing (not sure what […]

Yesterday I spoke of buying wardrobe at Salvation Army.  Looking through images to write about today I ran into this image.  This image is one of my all time favorites.  It’s  one of my very first outdoor shoots.  I didn’t know anything about lighting outside at all.  I would just show up and have the […]

My peony tree is in bloom this week, the flowers are as big as saucers.  They last such a short time it’s a shame.  So once a year I can get this shot. When workshop students ask my advice what to shoot I always mention high key.  I find it so refreshing and so do […]

A Gift

I enjoy teaching models how to hold props.  It helps them to understand that modeling is not all about them.  Clients will want them perhaps to sell their products not just sell the clothes on their backs.  The model needs to understand what I see from my camera position. What will a potential customer get […]

My mom called me from the local summer flea market trying to explain what she thought was a great find.  I couldn’t really picture it so I got in my car and drove over.  What I found was a dealer selling all kinds of belly dancer belts for $5..  It just seemed like a lot […]
