World Horror Convention in Portland, Oregon

Sunday, June 15th, 2014

I’m not entirely sure what I saw, so here’s the evidence (clues?) I’ve discovered on my camera, including a shot of the newly christened grandmaster of horror, Brian Keene and a Stephen King lover outside of Powell’s.

Over 9 months ago, I had a heart attack, and I have not shaved since. I’ve used a trimmer. I’ve kept it neat. But today, with much needless ceremony, I took a new razor and new shaving cream, and scraped my face clean.
(Also, I’ve recovered nicely and have lost a great deal of weight and […]

Lights 11/52 - K

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

After the big shoot with 20+ models and multiple locations and changes of clothes and makeup and such, I went back to the same boutique for a solo shot with the proprietor, shown here. We were indoors for this portion of the shoot, but I used the natural light coming through the big windows at […]

Lights 5/52 - Katelynn Ann

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

Sometimes, low lighting sets the right mood.
Still playing with the lights, obviously. Will be all year, so get used to it. I’ve still got a lot to learn.
Next week’s Lights photo will be the gargoyle set.
This weekend, I’ll be attending the Daddy Daughter Dance put on by the local Rotary. I’m neither a Daddy nor […]

Lights 4/52 - Cabaret - Yum-e

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

First, the alternate. The cabaret portion of this lights project has not gone as originally intended. There’s not enough backdrop. I don’t have an actual cabaret stage.
(Anyone with a cabaret stage who would allow me to shoot there, please get in touch.)
Playing with distance and angles of lights. I think I’ve discovered something about the […]

Lights 3/52 - Cabaret - River

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

Still working with lighting. Facing some issues, learning bits and pieces, understanding stuff a lot more now than at the start (and it’s only week 3). I’ve actually done a few more cabaret shoots, as well, all one after the other, so I was able to capitalize on the things I learned immediately. Strixx and […]

Lights 2/52 - Cabaret - Strixx

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

However, I don’t think it fits the theme as well.
I’ve done four Cabaret themed shoots already, so you will be seeing more. You might call that my mini-challenge for January (even though I did start with a self portrait). After a few of these, I’ll be switching to some inanimate objects and playing more heavily […]

Portrait 52/52 - Ned

The King in his Domain
And the 2011 Portrait Project is complete.

Portrait 51/52 - Mike

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

This is Portrait 51.
That means all three photography projects have posted 51 images.
That means, on Friday and Saturday, I’ll be posting the final pictures for each of the three projects: the self portraits, the portraits, and the third project.
It also means Sunday starts the new projects. One photography project: Lights. One writing project: 12-in-12. That’s […]
