Some Old Ideas Return

Note that some images below contain nudity and are NSFW.

As 2016 seems to rush by, I have been collaborating with a number of models I've worked with before. This has me revisiting some ideas I started playing with before in addition to continuing on my portrait studies.

After experimenting with candle smoke in January, I wondered how it would work against the bodies of my subjects. Erica Jay, a model and friend, suggested trying smoke from incense since it was longer lasting and has no open flame. It also leaves the studio smelling great. As you can see in the images above it has been interesting. The lighting is the trick and is still evolving, so stay tuned for more.

I also have always been interested in silhouettes. With some better tools, and more experience, I decided to give them a try again. The above, click through to see them all, are a few examples of recent attempts.

With many more sessions booked in the next few months, I look forward for more of these and whatever else comes into my head.
