Shot several things with fine artist Jessica Clay today. Tested some wet plate; bought a hampster; shot a lot of candles; this is a frame with a collection of walnuts from a tree in my back yard. I keep them, knowing I’ll use them for something.
Portrait of Jessica Clay, in the upstairs room of my house. Pretty light thru giant window. Walnuts from my back yard. (Click to enlarge).
Upstairs studio room. Soft natural light. Makes me think of Duane Michals. (Click to enlarge).
Jessica with the little Zombie Gerbil. He drew blood from two of the three people in the room today. Bit hard and held down. 8″x10″ collodion, on black metal. (Click to enlarge).
Final setup downstairs, with tungsten. (Click to enlarge).
Setup in my upstairs studio room. Pretty natural light. We were in the same Art History class. Since she cut her hair, I’ve seen her as this vagabond character from the 1940’s. Very strong face and eyes. (Click to enlarge).
A setup with some vintage glassware that I’ve been collecting lately. Window light. Shot with one of my busted-apart lenses, held up to the camera body. ASA 1600. (click to enlarge).
