I am not against Photoshopping at all - even crazy, extreme shops - but this unretouched Cindy Crawford pic is pretty sexy. In a world of "perfect" will flaws start to become fetishized? I think so. #photography   #photoshop  
An unretouched photograph of Cindy Crawford has leaked onto the Web, causing a fresh new wave of discussion and debate about Photoshop and what women's bod

A recent piece that is a little different from my normal #chiaroscuro  work. Check it out on +500px to learn more about how I created it. 
I worked with theater costumer Katherine Nowacki (http://katnowdesigns.com/) and makeup artist Rebecca Rosales to create this image of theater actress Tristan Cunningham in grocery store paper bags. It was lit with 2 Profoto B1 Airs, a reflector, and a Profoto Deep Umbrella (medium) with diffuser. The bags were held together with hair pins and museum wax.

A week before I took this portrait of Stella, her barn mate, Amber, passed away. She had been grieving and her human, Joan, was wary of her doing well in a photoshoot. As if sensing the importance of the task, Stella was very cooperative, with forward-pointing ears and buckets of patience. After a portrait session of her and Joan, I got this chiaroscuro shot at the last minute before hitting the road again. #horse   #horses   #equestrianphotography   #portrait   #chiaroscuro   #horsephotography
