This was done for a local aesthetician in San Francisco. Lit with 1 Profoto B2 inside a small umbrella with diffuser. Edited with #VSCO. She is sitting in front of one of my hand-painted backdrops.

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

A chiaroscuro heirloom portrait of Belle, who is 20 months years old here. Even at that young age, she chose her own outfit from among my costume racks. Taken with a 58mm on a D800, lit with 1 Profoto B2 inside a 2.5' octa. Learn how to shoot with primarily 1 light with my tutorials over on 500px ISO: https://iso.500px.com/tag/alex-huff/

Indeed. I even mistook her for 2 exactly but her mother assured me she was merely 20 months!

Being the family photographer is both a blessing and a curse - you're afforded the rare opportunity to constantly preserve memories while also trying to balance

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.
