This one did not grab my attention on my initial review/selection process. I was going back over this shoot with Liv making a podcast and this jumped off of the screen. The autonomy coupled with the incredibly strong emotion in her hands speaks intrigue to me. Soft but still intriguing with almost a total lack of symmetry.

I’m honored to have one of my pieces selected by juror Kimberly Witham for inclusion in this exhibit.
This image is titled “Farm House” and was shot in Lubec Maine. It was created using light sculpting techniques.
The full exhibit can be seen here.
Portraiture comes with endless possibilities and varieties which is one of the reasons why I love it. The main reason that I love it is that we humans have a depth in personality and soul that I’m convinced not even we can comprehend. I work hard towards capturing this on some level. The level will always vary and has a lot to do with the relationship and engagement between photographer and subject. This will even change between the same two people on different days. Whether we like it or not we are constantly influenced by everything around us every day. Another aspect of being human that is both frustrating and rewarding.
I’ve worked with Liv a few times and wanted to have a photo session largely dedicated to exploring portraiture in a way that is new and different for me. These pictures are the result of that session.
