Vintage Studio Style

A themed Studio shoot with models Sherri, Deb and Lucy.  They came ready to go in vintage fashion.

Sherri was the first to hop in the elevator that transported her back in time....

Lucy and Deb were stuck for a bit ~

eventually being able to get off on their floor

Sherri settles in with a quick call home to "pork chop"

Rolling in on the last evening train

Lucy awaits her ride as that final train leaves the station

This shoot was planned with the intention of turning the Studio into a variety of vintage style scenes.  Through light, shadow, posing and wardrobe hopefully I can take you back to those glorious days of train travel where your mind can bring your own personal stories to light.

Where does your art come from?

Cold sets in through the months of winter with "white" being the primary color for days on end.
So why not look at ordinary things with an abstract "eye" to see what your imagination can tap into.

A closed garage door on a frigid day transforms...

into          branches of a tree

into          happiness written with a foreign hand

into          a leap of faith

into          tall pines in the wood

Annie's Cafe

 Had the pleasure to work some food photography for Annie's Cafe on Union Ave in Laconia a while back.  When I went in for lunch it was nice to see my work in print on her new menus.

Annie offers a great selection of sandwiches, salads, soups and desserts.
All made fresh in her cozy cafe.

 If you have a special event coming up think of Annie for your catering needs.  She'll take good care of you and your guests from "soup to nuts".
And, of course, we just happened to be there on Friday ~ Cookie Day!



Projects in the Mix

I am the type that always has a project in the mix.  Ideas that swim around in my head that haven't quite made their way to the creation stage.   I was reminded by a friend of a particular project that had been put on the back burner last spring due to life "getting derailed" a bit.  Many a time I must put something on the back burner - it doesn't mean it's gone forever - just gets derailed for a stretch.

I've been pulling items out and rethinking my plan.  It will probably be completely different than the original thought that went by the wayside.  Creativity is good that way.

I recently completed a book as part of a project that I initiated.  It was such a treat to watch each person open up and read the words that accompanied the photographs.   One asked "how long did it take you to put this together?"  My response was "not very long at all, one evening actually."  When the feeling is right things flow and the task is easy and pleasurable.  When that feeling is vacant well then you best wait for another shot.  It would be the equivalent of trying to push something that is seriously stuck!  Though we think we're strong - we're not that strong!

So in honor of new projects as I waddled through my work load of editing and office chores today I decided instead of taking a lunch break I'd take a "paint break".

Voila - portable backdrop ready to hit the road.
