Facebook Art Challenge Day 3

Day 3 of the 5 Day Facebook Art Challenge. Fashion. I get to shoot some high end fashion shows in Philly occasionally. I document both the hectic behind the scenes prep (which I love) and the catwalk. There are many opportunities in fashion to get some fun shots. I love capturing the colors, textures, shapes, celebrity and drama of putting a big show on. Here is a small mix of it. For more check out my fashion page on my site.

Facebook Art Challenge. Day one.

My friend and fellow photog Patrick M. Early nominated me to participate in a 5 Day Facebook Art Challenge. I usually don’t do Facebook challenges but how could I say no to Pat? Apparently if he hadn’t nominated me friend and artist Cheryl Kugler would have. The cool thing is that this year marks a 1/4 century of photography for me. 25 years and I still love what I do. It has changed quite a bit. Of course digital technology has changed my workflow completely (for the better) and then I made the leap from news to commercial and marketing in 2006. This little challenge allows me to look back and reflect a little. The good…and the bad. So the challenge is to post 3 pieces of art a day for 5 days. After shooting for so long I really don’t have a favorite…I have a few images I love, many I like and many more I hate. I love strong graphic images (no, not that kind) I love leading lines, silhouettes, popping colors, and breaking the rules. The red light shot was done about 20 years ago in Reedsville. I was hunting up a feature for the next day’s paper. The dim, dreary day allowed me to create this silhouette of construction workers on a roof while retaining the lit traffic lights. I also liked the crazy power lines cutting up the frame. This was a news image therefore no photoshopping was done beyond burning and dodging. In the fire photo I like the leading line of the fire hose and roaring fire. Any closer to the action and I would have needed turnout gear (and a hose). I found the summer waterfall feature at Laughlin Mill in Newville. It was just a fun hot weather feature photo with a twist. The water running over the kids makes it surreal and sort of resembles an oil painting. Not long after I captured this “no trespassing” signs were placed nearby. So that’s day 1.

Rock’in shoot

Took a break recently  from the hustle and bustle of commercial shoots to do a senior portrait session. I do a few a year as my schedule allows and I am always amazed at the talent of our youth. Casey is a neighbor that we have watched grow up in our church. She is on the praise team. She is absolutely the most musically talented teen I have ever met. Ever. I am always blown away when she participates in the praise band. She sings and on any given Sunday can play just about any musical instrument ever made. When mom, Sheri (who is an equally amazing praise band member), asked if I would do the shoot I was all in. We batted around some ideas and came up with Pheasant Field Bed and Breakfast outside of Carlisle, PA (www.pheasantfield.com). This breathtaking, historical place has a horse hotel in a 1700’s era barn that made for a fantastic setting. I wanted to keep the images simple and clean while capturing her personality, spirit and musical aura. My favorite location by far was in and around that barn…inside the horse barn we found an amazing, warm space (no horses there that day) that had a timeless feel. I shot everything with one large soft box powered off a battery pack. Although I shot everything in color I love B&W and hence I converted these few for the post. Thanks to Kitty at Pheasant Field B&B for her great hospitality and thanks to Casey and Sheri for a great photo shoot!
