Portraits



     I haven't done much studio work, but when we moved here

in 2018, I bought one studio light and an umbrella to explore it.

I hung a black blanket on the only free wall in my music room. I have little space in there, so I dispense with the umbrella and use the reflected light from the back wall

and ceiling. I point the light in the opposite direction because it's so bright! I don't own any fill lights.


     At times, I have to pump

up the brightness in Lightroom

or Photoshop, but I edit everything

I show in there anyway. I really don't have room for another thing in the studio.


     Shooting self–portraits is a

challenge, but I don't really pursue getting other people to pose for private reasons. It has nothing to

do with narcicism. I'll only have a few pieces to show here, but it is one of my favorite photographic

endeavors. I especially like the

black & white in this genre.

          In addition to the selfies, I photographed a couple of the old guys in

our condo community, and a couple of friends, in my studio here using that single light. A few were taken on location with natural light.

          I took a lighting class in 2013 from Chuck Vosburgh at

the Morean Arts Center in St. Pete. There were models and we

got the opportunity to direct and photograph them in a professional

studio, using a single light with a backdrop. Very cool.
