Back to Basics

This is a lighting test for an upcoming indoor series of cats. I will be doing these in the next couple of weeks to show that my outdoor style translates consistently indoors. It is extremely hard to do and I have studied it's qualities that makes this work so historic and timeless looking. I think I'm on the right track.

More monkeying around

So this is the second version of the monkey portrait that I've been working on. To be honest, while I like this version better than the last, something is missing here. For me, it is the heroism  that brings a real special element to all of my other work. In this image's own defense, it is merely an experiment of pushing the boundaries and me growing as an artist. It is a journey, in that I want to explore as many possibilities as I can.

Hitting a Wall

 
With things being in the shape that they are at the moment, I wanted to express my stance in the best way that I know how. The depicted wall here is a figurative one but also one that is imagined by our subject.  We all feel this way from time to time especially in this economic climate. I am sure that things will get better and I never doubt the power of good ideas.

It's a rainy day and a great time to check out my portraits, and book your session. Click on the link in my bio for commission info....
