Week 30: The Formal Portrait

Oct 05

Week 30: Formal Painting After last week’s high-tech look, I decided to go the opposite direction with this image. I wanted to create a very antique – almost Old Master- look with a strong, directional light and a limited color palette. I tried to be very aggressive with the brushstrokes, getting increasingly loose as I moved away from the center of...

Week 29: Snapshots

Sep 30

I had this idea pop into my head, but was having trouble sorting out the logistics. How could I chop up the image in different ways and still retain a somewhat visable photographic image? After toying around in Photoshop for a while, I came up with a system and started working. I took 16 pieces of the same image, kept the size consistent, then pieced them back...

Sep 23

I was unpacking my camera bag in the studio this week and noticed my faithful sidekick, Annie, sitting by the door watching me. Not sure what made me think of this, but it occurred to me that she turned 6 last month.

The Four Seasons

Sep 02

Back in May, I was helping out with the Westwood School’s Shakespeare play and loved how they were doing really complicated makeup on some of the kids. We decided to try and put together a portrait of several girls – all sporting different makeup. The summer, we gathered up a few brave models and my buddies Sami and Gusi went to work on their hair and...
