These are from an older shoot, but they deserve re-visiting. Malene Jensen is a fabulous model.
Seen near OMSI. No idea what this is used for, though.
The New York, New York hotel in Las Vegas. Both somehow fitting, and a little disconnected at the same time…
One of the loneliest piles of garbage I’ve ever seen… I had to get a photo once I noticed the hawk in the background.
Another great open house at North Coast Seed Building this year. This time I made some portraits for the willing, and summarily turned seventeen of the photos into paintings. Thanks for coming down! The 17 images are in the gallery.
The more I shoot portraits, the more I realize that a good smile really starts with the eyes. Not just the thought behind the eyes, but the actual muscles around the eyes are more flexed when you actually smile. This is why saying “cheese” doesn’t cut it.
This year’s excursion into the arid Eastern Oregon
wastelands farmlands was a great success; more images to come. The general effects of Wind and Solar decay on the old homesteads and ghost towns is both haunting and beautiful. The effect in this one image was actually a technical error, but I really enjoy what happened.
