A quick study with smoke. I wish to do more smoking, fogging, and water shots in the upcoming weeks.

"Moist I, II, II, and IV" Experimental Studies

For awhile Christopher and I have been talking about creating clear hoods for my shoots. I wanted to test out the feel, look, and lighting on plastic. I was curious to see how the face would look underneath the hood and how the skin would capture between the plastic. One quick thing I noticed was how fast the plastic hood fogs up. Christopher warned me this might happen. Nonetheless, I love how these studies turned out. The close face clear hoods on a model reminds me of the Japanese photographer, Haruhiko Kawaguchi. Whom I'm a fan of his work, if you do not know who he is, please look him up. I am definitely going to experiment more with these clear hoods and butterfly jacket.

Open Prints are Now Available!

I  added a new category to my store, prints. The prints, selection will house open prints, which means the print itself will not be limited to any print runs. The sizes to these open prints will be between 8.5" x 8.5" to 8.5" x 11" on premium glossy paper. (Prints will not have watermarks on them) It was exciting creating these, and I am aiming to do more along with my concept driven projects. I have a lot in store for the future. 

Thank you and please enjoy the store.
