Was very cold and no photos to edit so I had time to play in photoshop. In this first I combined a photo of emgee with some stock photos of stock exchange. I also used some fairy wing brushesdark_fantasyand this next one I used a stock photo of an old polaroid and an ashtray and added photos of emgee run through Alien skin Exposure 2 the B&W polaroid effect. The table is from Alien skin Eye candy texturespolaroid_collageI guess I have too much time on my hands to read Tutorials. If amyone is interested in the process let me know

Well Portrait Professional 8 never does. I contacted a model off a modeling site. She had recently moved here from another state. Her profile showed her at 110 #’s and gorgeous. Apparently she had gained weight because when she got her she was not what I expected by her photographs. So what was I to do. Use my super powers.

Before and After

Before and After

Now I will not debate the ethicalness(?) of this but I needed her to look like the after and that is what the client expected. There was no time to to get another as this was a last minute deal anyway. The client is happy and that makes me ecstatic. Sometimes good software and knowing how to use it is invaluable.

Sometimes you have to do an extreme makeover. This woman was at the TV ad shoot and she wanted me to fix her teeth and makeher beautiful

I have been very busy and well…just plain lazy. I am back in the swing and will be posting more. My last psot I talked about my muse model Shannon. Today I shot probably my last photo with her. sad to say she is moving back to¬† NC. I will miss her a lot. She has grown to be a friend as well as my muse. I wish her and her kids well.

here is my latest of her



She always says I photograph nothing but her backside. Well it is the cutest one I have ever shot LOL

This was in the studio of a friend. I have made a deal with her to use her studio and lights from time to time. as any of you know I don’t shoot inside very often but it is nice to have that option, especially for artistic nudes.

The Tech stuff.

I think every artist should have a muse. I have found one I am quite happy with. She does not live far away is a stay at home mom. Available pretty much anytime I want to shoot and has a home large enough to shoot in. What more could I ask, well for starters that she stick around. Unfortunately she is living in Feb. so i will be without her. It is hard to find someone willing to try any pose or style and is so comfortable being in states of undress. Here is one of our latest.I am moving more and more to this artistic style of shooting

Guerilla style outdoor nudes

I am not telling anyone to try this, but shoot and scoot outdoor nude shoots can be an adrenaline rush. I took allthe precautions I could. I scouted the location, a very rural country bridge that one end of the road was closed. We drove down and turned around facing back out knowing the road was closed behind us. Shannon was a trooper. We started shooting in the field off the road

It was a wildflower field. should have seen her naked in flip flops.

I thought the graffitti would be interesting

then she turned around and took her bra off.

and finally the Full Monty. Shannon has one of the nicest rears and set of legs I have ever had the pleasure to shoot. I am very fortunate to have her live so close and be a willing muse. I did not get to shoot her tied to the RR tracks, was just too many folks around. Maybe next time.
