A Beautiful Young Woman From the Deep Archives.

Digging deep into the archives this week, I came across the first session I ever shot with Jessica.  You’ve seen some photos from this set percolate up over the years, but some of these have never seen the light of day.

This set was shot in 2007, just a couple of weeks after her 18th birthday.  The original concept for the shoot was an extended series of poses for her to use as reference material in her artistic pursuits.    By the time we finished the reference shots, she was having so much fun we just kept shooting.   I think we shot for about 3 or 4 hours that day.

Jessica was a regular in front of my camera until she got to busy with College last year and I’ve only gotten to shoot her once since spring of 2013.  As I revisit the archives over time, you’ll be seeing more of what were originally the ‘cast offs’ from the many, many sets over the 6+ years between this shoot and the last full session we shot in early 2013.  And who knows, when she’s between semesters and has some free time, I may yet get her back in front of my lens to create more art.

These are sensual and classic nude poses, so I’ve put them behind the fold, as usual.  Enjoy.

A touch of urbex

You don’t necessarily have to risk life and limb (and arrest) to find great locations with that run-down urbex feel.   These two shots were taken during a nice stroll around the Marietta Square on afternoon.  The look comes from framing, selective lighting and a bit of post processing in Lightroom.

Grandpa Jack a few days before his passing.

Wendi and I went out to visit my maternal grandfather, Jack Barnett a few days before his passing.   Having just bought a new 50mm f/1.8 lens, I couldn’t just let the camera sit in the bag.   I’m immensely glad I pulled it out and just started shooting.   This is one of the best photos of him I have, and one of the last ones ever taken.   He died a few days later after something went awry with his pacemaker.

Random photos from the deeeeeeeep archives part (whatever)

Felt a bit hermit-like tonight so I put on the headphones and went through (mumble) years of photos tonight. Pulled a few out to play around with as the mood struck me. Some of these you’ve seen earlier edits of, some are newly unearthed. Enjoy.

Some photos from the deep archives.

Going back through my archives again.  This time, from 2006-2008.  You may have seen some of these before, others I know no one has seen.   All of them have been taken from the raw shots and re-edited / corrected / cropped, etc.  using the stuff I’ve learned in the six or seven years since I took the shots.   Enjoy.

On body size and beauty.

Over on the Regretsy forum, a discussion of body image came up.  This discussion spawns 12+ pages of comments, posts and discussions that is pretty well summed up by it’s subject:  “Hot Fat Chicks!”.

Normally I’d stay away from something with a crass headline like that, but this particular forum is always full of intelligent, snarky, crass, and just plain fucked up awesomeness.

Instead of posting a photo or two in the forum, I thought the topic deserves a larger photo treatment.  I dug way back into my archives and selected a few images from every year from 2007 to present to represent the beauty, sensuality and just plain sexiness of the large, curvacious and beautiful women whom have graced my studio over the years.

Some of the pictures below the fold are NSFW but all of the mare tasteful and elegant.  So without cluttering up your screen with more words, I give you beauty writ large.   Enjoy.

A bit of Love (Roxy Love) from 2007.

Working my way further and further back through the archives.  This batch of beauty and sexiness comes from April 2007.  The model is Roxy Love (yeah, it’s a stage name).  I have the great pleasure of shooting her a number of times over a couple of years.  The last I heard she’s still modeling in and around Birmingham, AL.

Enough with the text.  Here’s what you’re all here for:
