Crossed Shadows

 

Abstract nude in black and white

I really enjoy the experimental nature of using a small LED flashlight as my only light source. My approach is to set the flashlight to its blinking mode so it’s flashing on and off. The process can create a really unique lighting effect but I never really know for sure what the result will be.

Experimenting with Light and Motion

Fine art photo of light and motion

Sometimes it’s fun to try things just to see what happens. In this case I combined a model laying on a large rotating turntable with a strobe that projects a grid pattern. I simply placed an LED lantern on the opposite side of the turntable and then held the shutter open for one half of a revolution to create the light streak.

A Composition in Color

It's all about the color

I love color.  Maybe it’s a response to my formative years as a photographer when I used Kodak’s Tri-X black and white film for 99 percent of my photography. Modern processes give me the freedom to explore colorful compositions that are more about the color than the subject.

A Moving Photo

360 degree view of sculpture

I always enjoy photographing the work of local artists, and now I’m really excited to offer a new feature.  When photographing 3-dimensional works I can do a 360 degree rotation and provide the artist with an animated GIF file for use on their website. What better way to show off a sculpture than to show it from all angles.

Bold Colors

Windmills near Delavan, IllinoisI love bold colors, and I especially love the color contrast of yellow and blue that we can sometimes find at sunset.
