I am doing something I don't normally do - I am uploading this image at a resolution of 7201 × 3013 so you can enter the lightbox and use the zoom button and pretend you're a movie camera sitting on a dolly!

This was an entry into the latest round of The Scavenger Hunt on the theme Cinematic. Thanks to model Hayli Collier, Makeup Artist James Anthony and the San Francisco Opera House for hosting us.

Desert Rose
Away from the darkness and toward the bright. My friend and sometimes muse Jennifer Bruce agreed to pose for my latest experiment. I wanted to create a more illustrative style portrait. I was inspired by our local-to-Oakland Morcom Rose Garden aka The Jbae Amphitheater of Roses, Franciscan Desert Rose crockery, my love of pink and green paired together and Cris Crisman’s Flower Child portrait.

When down her weedy trophies and herself
Fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide; _
_And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up

Vanitas, a reminder of the inevitability of death...
This project started out as an artistic collaboration between me and Aya, a floral artist based in San Francisco: http://www.flower-couture.com/

Have you heard of +Dark Beauty Magazine? Dark Beauty is a popular media entity which celebrates fashion, art and beauty with a darker aesthetic. Recently I got together with a great team of artists and models to put together a series of images we call VANITAS. This series, designed with Dark Beauty in mind was recently published in the Dark Beauty magazine. I'll be sharing images from the series over the next couple of weeks.
In order to captures these images I installed a kiddy pool in the studio. Huge thanks to fellow G+ friend +Joanna Koziara for assisting me with this shoot. She was a rock star, running around adding kettles full of hot water to the pool to keep the models warm and throwing towels into the dryer and positioning lights and recording BTS, etc. The rest of the team are listed below. I'll tell you a bit more about them in future shares...
