Scott Kelly posed for me in my studio recently for a conceptual composite that I’m still working on. But after we shot the photos for the composite, he sat for a portrait. I was going for a low-key, high-contrast portrait that had an almost illustrated look. Here is the result.
I shot most of the pieces last week and created it digitally over the weekend. I enjoyed every minute and hour behind the lens and my computer.
Thanks to Ranae Scott who's awesome body awareness and balance made the posing possible and Carrie Strahle of Carrie Strahle Makeup Artistry for her hair and makeup work on Ranae. They both also contributed to the concept ideas as well. Working as a team with them made my original idea into something even more interesting.
Here’s a video clip of my former sports and business reporter Christopher Miller. He’s living in Ukraine and working as the editor of the Kiev Post. CNN’s Anderson Cooper interviewed him about all violent protests in Kiev recently.
And if you’re on the other side of the world in Los Angeles, you can read the fine work of my former reporter Abby Sewell as she reports for the LA Times and chronicles the life of a great city.
Just imagine these two in 10 more years! Fasten your seatbelts, people!
