Lets discuss model photography for a few weeks as one of my favorite topics. During my travels over the last two months I photographed female models, so here we will start with the males. We will talk about what makes an extraordinary model and and how to find the composition and expressions that pay the greatest compliment to a certain face. All models have expressions that make them most attractive, and for a select few models they are attractive in any facial expression. We will discuss male models, female models, the unconventionally attractive, and those with very unique looks. We will discuss expressions, lighting, and later the psychology of modeling. So expect that we will be on this topic for awhile.
I am continuing to work in this area so it will be helpful to think out loud sometimes. Here's the link for the photos below: http://exotically-unique.tumblr.com/tagged/bo+spencer

What have I been doing? Well first I've been out of the country in the US for awhile, and then back home working. I'm saving for a cash purchase on one of these. I only mention this because of the car's extraordinary art value. Up until this point I have not been particularly impressed by any vehicle.

Quakers in Michigan - taken from Michigan Live - Quakers Live in Faithful Simplicity in West Michigan. I believe that Quakers, Mennonites, The Amish and Unitarians, rank highest among North American religions that truly strive to demonstrate the love of God in the way in which they live. This is shown by the humility, kindness and general behavior of the greater populations of their communities. And also in the way they live in peace, and sacrifice of themselves to help the poor, the underprivileged and the suffering. This photo's simplicity is so appropriate to this context. http://www.mlive.com/living/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2012/09/quaker_families_live_in_faithf.html

I really like the subject and composition of this photo - its very serene. The time of day and weather conditions played a central role in it's beauty. This photo is from Catholic Rural Life Bulletin.

I encourage you to see the documentary about James Baldwins unfinished book "I Am Not Your Negro". Its a thought-provoking and high-quality work that will challenge your assumptions.
