A View from Above – The Rest of the Story

In a previous post, I presented a shot of my wife, Wendi, that we submitted to Molly’s Daily Kiss Sinful Sunday photo blog.  As any photographer or model will tell you, when you’re shooting for a couple of hours with multiple costume and set changes, you always come away with at least a few great shots.    Here I present to you the ‘Rest of the Story’.   Included at the end are a couple of “just for the hell of it” shots.  They’re all technically work safe, but I wouldn’t push it with most HR departments.  So click on the MORE button and enjoy.

Sinful Sunday – A Shot from Above

Over on one of my favorite blogs; Molly’s Daily Kiss, they have a photo link list called Sinful Sundays.   Each week there’s a new theme presented and then a guest author picks their favorites.

I haven’t participated in one of Molly’s themes in way too long so I asked Wendi (my much prettier half) if she’d pose for it.  She was delighted and spent most of the day playing with cloth and clothes and lingerie and all the other fun things that go into a shoot like this.  More photos from the shoot soon.  This one’s for Sinful Sunday.

Click on the lips at the bottom to go to Molly’s Daily Kiss for links to the rest of the participant’s posts.  Enjoy

Devious Beauty in Red Silk

Good scotch, a fine cigar, soft silks, a beautiful woman.  What more could a photographer possibly want?

It’s not often I get another photographer in front of my camera, but I was blessed with that opportunity this weekend.   Below the fold are the first few edits from a marathon 5+ hour session with this lovely lady.

Yep, they’re not safe for work. Nudity, tobacco and alcohol abound beyond the fold.   I’m not sure which is more offensive to the prudes, to be honest.

A Calamity in Silk

The lovely Calamity Janet, one of my favorite redheads to grace my studio this year showed me how much fun several yards of yellow silk can be.

As usual, Not Safe For Work (NSFW). You’ve been warned.

Caught in the Web.

Jessica posed for an impromptu shoot with a fantastic iridescent spider web covered fabric back in 2009.   Only a couple of these shots ever saw the light of day until now.   She had no makeup, no hair styling, just her and the drape in front of a white wall.

Over the ensuing six years, my editing skills have improved significantly so I thought I’d see what I can do with them now.   This gallery is the result.   Enjoy.

A night of low-key photography – part 2

With every shoot I do, I make an effort to revisit the shoot after some time has passed in order to look at the shots with a fresh eye.   I’ll also do this after developing a new technique or just to experiment and see if I can come up with anything neat or show worthy.

I added quite a few images to the gallery of my low-key experiment shoot with Corrie back in January.   Some of the new images are, in my opinion, my best low-key work to date, though there is one stunning high-key image included.  I just can’t seem to get away from bright lights and hard shadows.

So, sit back and enjoy the show.  I’d love to hear from all of you with comments, criticisms, suggestions or anything else you want to say or ask.

The gallery is behind the cut because, as you should already expect from me, they’re Not Safe For Work (NSFW).

Back in the Studio with Pris

I shot this lovely lady mid last year in a relatively impromptu session. We had a hell of a lot of fun and talked about another session.  Life, as it does, gets in the way sometimes and it took until April of this year to get back together for another evening of fun and photos.

Rather than go on and on about this beautiful, vibrant and awesome woman, I’ll let the photos speak for me.  Enjoy.

Kerstin at T-minus 3 weeks and counting.

My step-niece, Kerstin is about 2-3 weeks from unleashing the next generation upon an unsuspecting and unprepared world. May the gods have mercy on us all.

Enjoy the photos.

An experiment in low-key photography. – Part 2

I took some time recently to complete my finishing touches on the first shoot of 2015.  There may be a few more gems buried in the shoot, but I am extremely pleased with the results so far.  I hope you will be too.

As you probably already knew, the images past the cut are NSFW.

Expressions of Beauty at Alchemy 2011

The spirit of creativity and the joy of free expression is the foundation of Burning Man and the regional festivals that have formed from it’s inspiration.

With that spirit in mind I asked this lovely woman to let me capture her expressions of that freedom and her inner beauty at the Alchemy burn in 2011.

Images behind the cut and as you already know, They’re NSFW.  Tasteful and beautiful nudity abounds in this set.
