Karsen 1

For the past three weeks the black backdrop has been set up over and over again.  Moving our furniture in our house has become completely passe at this point.   We don't even think about it nor hesitate.  When your living room double as your studio you do what you have to do.  Everytime I do this shoot I end up tinkering with my edit of the shoot even though the lighting doesn't change all that much.  I am still working out what exactly it is that I am wanting to do.  Do I even want it to be narrow in definition?  I think I want it to be narrow, but perhaps not singular in definition and boundary for a season.  We shall see.  For this session with Karsen I used my favorite 3D Look Up Table to get the teal orange look I enjoy.  It's subtle, but I love the balance between the warmth and purity of her skin tone juxtaposing against the cool blue in the shadows and her hair.

Maisome: Part 1

Hannah and I went on a missions trip to photograph a group of Americans and Tanzanians joining together to share the hope found in Jesus Christ to the people of Maisome Island.  There's no electricity nor running water.  We had a generator than lit a single lightbulb strung in the middle of our tents so we could recharge our phones, which didn't work as a means of calling, but were reduced to cameras and walkmans.   [caption id="attachment_51765" align="aligncenter" width="2048"] Maisome Island, Tanzania[/caption] ...
