This piece is called, “Rat Patrol.” The name was going to be “Desolation,” or “Desolate Rider,” but one of my friends suggested that it seemed as though my lady was on a mission. So I floated “Rat Patrol,” and about six of my friends said, … Continue readingRat Patrol
In addition to the more traditional styles of artistic nudes, and the occasional boudoir photography session, one of my favorite forms of photography is what I call “fantasy nudes.” These are typically composites, and as you might guess from the name, I fill them with … Continue readingFantasy Nudes/Composites
One of the things I really enjoy is taking an image that’s missing something, or has too much of something, or has been damaged in some way, and either repairing, or, where possible, making a better photo out of it.
I have been remiss about blogging lately. A bit too busy with my law practice – which, at the moment, is how I fund my life – so unless and until I sell more prints on a regular basis, that’s just how it goes. Anyway, … Continue readingThird Place Award: Nudes in November 2014
That’s how it seems I’ve been working lately: day and night, night and day. This Thursday, October 2, 2014, from 5 p.m. until at least 7 p.m., I have my first ArtHop™ exhibition at the downtown Citibank at Kern & M Streets in Fresno. If … Continue readingDay & Night
Bunny Chafowitz and I were making plans to go out at 4 a.m. this morning to try to catch some sunrise “agscapes.” Unfortunately, my day job got in the way of being able to adequately scout out locations. Since I had no idea where we might … Continue readingHow the Sun Rolls at Night
I have been remiss. I’m shooting, but haven’t felt much like blogging lately. So maybe I’ve got a few stacked up inside me here. Anyway, last night I went out driving around starting about 6 p.m. I didn’t have any idea what I was going … Continue readingThe Hills Are Alive
Stayed home all weekend, playing around with Photoshop.
If you’ve read any of my recent articles, you know I’ve been taking some steps forward in my artistic “enterprise.” First, I hired a graphic artist to design a new logo for So Shoot Me!™. Then I hired an attorney and finally filed to register … Continue readingStepping Things Up
This post is not going to be a detailed “how-to” for the use of textures and blend modes. And I should note — you’ve no doubt already noticed — that the image here is “different” than what I normally post, in that it includes a … Continue readingPost-Processing Textures & Blend Modes: Zombie Pin-up
Chris Pierce is a good friend of mine. Recently, the band in which he plays bass — the Gray Horse — was playing at a local nightspot. When I arrived to watch, I learned that a photographer they were expecting had not yet shown up, … Continue readingGray Horse Band Member: Chris Pierce
DISCLAIMER! I can’t give enough warnings on this: if nudity offends you, or you are at work and it will offend your co-workers, do not click on the link to the gallery contained in this post. END DISCLAIMER!
“Home Alone” was followed by “Home Alone 2.” Since my last post was a play off of that movie and I wanted to post the same beautiful woman again, I’d be just as…uh…”creative” with my title.
First, apologies to the IE folks who haven’t been able to view the site. As noted elsewhere, I had to make significant code changes to the original theme. In the process, I left a “- ->” off the end of one line, which apparently confounded … Continue readingPhotoshop Painting
Once in awhile, I get a wild hair and want to test what I’m able to do. Erin’s impromptu portrait is an example.
