Pool shoot in the CWE

My favorite "muse" and collaborator Carol like to do a pool shoot during the summer, its often a logistical headache arranging the schedule for myself, Carol and the pool owner not to mention dealing with the weather. Today it all came together in a very special location in the CWE.

New figure work from June 2019

It's been a busy June at the Tyson studio, my goal for May-June was to get in 20 shoots at the studio and I made it!

Here's a small selection from some of that work:

My work on the Oxford American site: "A Matter of Faith"

After 13 years I have closed the books on the last of my Post Katrina projects, "A Matter of Faith" tracks the rebuilding of the faith based community in the lower 9th ward of New Orleans.

New work from "Portfolio for Bart"

In pulling for for a grant, I found this image that I never converted from the RAW file. I am thinking I'll be doing more work like this in the spring once the studio gets back on line again.

Earliest Example of Digital Figure Studies 2002

My very first digital camera as a Kodak 4800, a camera with so many compromises I did not have it long, I soon acquired in 2002 a Nikon Coolpix E5000. It was a 5 mp camera with terrible shutter lag (yes that was a real thing in early digital) and questionable AF, but it was a start. I think it cost me close to $900 (the price of the bleeding edge of tech).

I do not think they even made RAW files, it only shot in jpg and tiff (8 bit) formats. I originally opened the files in Photoshop 7 (not CS 7 either kids) but these files were opened in Capture One 12 and then post processed into B and W using NIK Silvereffects.

Aimee 2004

I've been lucky enough to have been able to photograph my friend Aimee since 1994, she is for lack of a better word, a warrior in many ways (but not in a literal military way). This one is from some early digital studio work & shot with a Nikon D100, my first DSLR. This file was RAW converted with PS 2018 and then converted into a B & W image with Silver Effects Pro.
