Thistle, Winter, 2008

“Blood Moon”, Lunar Eclipse, Hagerstown, Maryland, September 27, 2015

Model “Monica”, Southern Maryland, May and June 2002

Commercial?

Just add text.

Looking back, commercial (commercial-like) photography — all of this was and remains demonstration — doesn’t get more simple.  The photographer brings his bag and tripod; the model brings herself, change of clothes, makeup: done.   If the model has a friend, add a bounce card.

It’s easy to complicate a “shoot” with gear — the studio has been always portable: Vagabond field battery, light stands and lamps, even the changing room that comes in a bag — a one-person tent — but especially in public open space, the more junk hauled along, the greater the hassle.

Hmmm.

I want to do this stuff again!
