Rebeca Robles and I had a few moments while walking down Krog Street Tunnel and visiting The Revelator to snap a few photos. Always creative gold to work with that girl.
Actress Devin Feheley took an hour out of her crazy schedule of classes and film shoots to do this series with me. It was a first time using smoke grenades. We did not set anything on fire, which is always a plus. I'm hoping to be able to manipulate the plumes better perhaps next time, and although I love the depth of this structure, find a location with more foreground elements. Still, the shoot was a blast and had some lovely results. Devin is always a joy to work with.
I haven't had the chance to photograph too many male subjects. Fortunately, my brother was in need of senior photos, and I was in need of someone to hold torches for a more native concept. The partnership yielded several great shots.
I had the incredible honor of being asked to shoot photos for the cover of Barry Blair's christmas album. It will be an instrumental album featuring classic songs with jazz and folk vibes. The shoot was low-key as I listened to Barry play bits of the songs and set about capturing him in his element.
New Mexico is known to the world as "the land of enchantment". It should be known instead as the land of strange plants. I discovered a dandelion on a recent walk. Armed with my 100mm, a spray bottle, and a desk lamp, I took the above photos. It was fascinating to study the way the textures acted under the light. I think the images turned out beautifully. I think they might make a great wall-sized mural in an upscale loft or office building.
