In the Studio with Jess Ami Part 2

I guess it really isn’t part 2, Jess and I have shot many times over the last 12 months, but this is part 2 of our most recent shoot. Jess really wanted to try a Milk Bath, as she had never done one, I had done one before, but learned from last time and wanted…

Tuesday’s Textures

My take on Shakespeare’s Ophelia, certainly not an original idea or story, but hopefully an original take on the image and this small part of the story. I went for something a little softer and perhaps a bit dreamy. It is a sad, dark tale with an unhappy ending, but I still think that sometimes…

Just before Christmas, Jess and I scheduled an afternoon for a play session in the studio, we both wanted to do something a little different and just casual and fun. So we did a casual photo shoot, no fancy clothes or edits or even digital art, just some fun and flirty portraits, getting back to…

Thursday’s Textures

I know normally it is Tuesday’s Textures, but Tuesday kind of got away from me this week. This is an image I took of Amber Formosa Mort at a recent Studio Shoot, it was shot on a Green screen, something I do not normally bother with, but it was all set up, so why not?…

In the Studio – Film Noir

Film noir has been around since the 1940’s… A style or genre of cinematographic film marked by a mood of pessimism, fatalism, and menace. The term was originally applied (by a group of French critics) to American thriller or detective films made in the period 1944–54 and to the work of directors such as Orson…

Everyday Inspiration: Day 12 – Critique

Offering genuine critique or construction criticism is actually quite difficult, as a Mentor and Artistic Coach I have had to do it several times, and occasionally even on pieces I personally did not like.
