Día de Muertos

Breaking the Rules ...

How many times have you heard me say, "you cant break the rules until you know them??" Well, here is one such example of breaking the rules.

In our studio and field mentoring sessions we always say look for the catch light in the eyes. The eye's need to be alive. But when you have an amazing subject matter and set design that says "I need to be like the walking dead" ... then lifeless eyes, are maybe what you need to convey the story and emotion. I think it works extremely well for this Día de Muertos image.

Romantic Interlude

In our studio sessions, I really like to encourage the folks to shoot off strobe on bulb. The results can produce such amazing and surprising images that can be molded into incredible master pieces. It truly has become one of my favorite techniques, as it allows me to more easily process images, inspired by the old world impressionists which I absolutely love

Just imagine this piece printed large on canvas or a warm Hahnemühle rag.

Its been awhile since i have up-loaded a few images from our studio sessions. This shoot came together via a collaborative combination of a few attending participants, and a vision that i had wanted to do for a while.
