Dave and David 3 of 8

Carmen-Blike-II-Eustace-2He wandered into my studio unannounced.
He willingly sat for my light testing. A client session would begin shortly.
It was Oct. 17, 2009.

Fast forward.

Last minute scramble to submit my assignment of a David Eustace-inspired environmental portrait. Eustace has been referred to as Scotland’s secret weapon, the only non-American invited to participate in USA Network’s Photographic Celebration of America’s Characters.  His photography is simple and clean and compelling, something to integrate into my style of “seeing”.

My son Dave’s “In From the Cold” portrait reminded me of Eustace’s style in his Greene Street Project.

Voila! Homework done.

2 Placemats and a Cheese Grater

Coolest GizmoA bit of sleight-of-hand, a little illusion, these assignments have stretched my imagination…and that’s a good thing! The assignment was to SHOOT THE COOLEST ELECTRONIC GIZMO EVER MADE – so I picked a PC board. Got this crazy idea to make it look the opening scene in the first Stars Wars movie . Do you remember the deep rumbling throughout the theater and then you saw a spaceship pass overhead? So I wanted this Stars Wars cruiser feel with stars in the background, etc.

Didn’t happen.

The making of ....behind the scenes.

Instead I managed to make a cool composite that focuses your attention on the chip – the brain inside most of our electronic devices. This board was shot upside down. Those are 2 placemats and 1 cheese grater to make the background.

Imagine this as a double page ad shot to also be used in a brochure. That means the image will be big…
Never in a million years did I think I could pull something off like this.  Today I feel I’m just a little bit better than yesterday.

That’s all we can ask for.
