This is a tourniquet used when doing surgery on hands, arms, legs and feet. We weren’t doing surgery in the studio; it’s not nearly clean enough. The red and blue together with the low-key feel help make this an interesting photograph. The doctor was my assistant. He’s very good, but I’d get nervous if he were working on me in a hospital. I’m interested in hearing your thoughts.
It’s a classically autumn vegetable. Cultivated for centuries, they have been used for food, kitchen tools, toys, musical instruments and decoration. They have fascinating shapes and colors that make interesting subject matter for photography. I’m sticking with the simple approach again, a single light source and a white background. I feel that it allows the nature of the gourd to be revealed. As always, comments are welcome.
Root Vegetables have that gnarled, misshapen, twisted look that I find intriguing. I added glamor to these beets with water, giving them a little shine. It contrasts with the messy root hair and debris on the stems. Photographically, a single light and a simple white background let the beets be the star.
I had the opportunity to work with an excellent art director on a project for a local medical equipment manufacturer. This is one of several photographs we made that day in my studio. Collaboration was theme of the day, as we worked together to making photographs that would enhance the design of the brochure. As always, please let me know what you think.
I took a CPR class a few years ago, the EMTs doing the class emphasized how important breathing is to being alive. So not breathing dust, pollen or particulate is likewise important too. These masks are the simplest form of defense. Of course making an interesting photo is my job, a background with some texture helps. As always, I’m interested in your thoughts.
No, not really, just industrial hazardous environment protection. Still, it’s kinda cool looking. I enjoy trying to make ordinary things interesting. Photographing pea pods or industrial products, it’s a blast. Please let me know what you think!
Radicchio, is another one of those really attractive vegetables. I thought a very simple treatment with the dark background would complement the simple beauty of the radicchio. For me, photography it is the ability to reveal the essence of an object, or person. Sometimes, that means high production value and complicated lighting. Other times it means one light in a very simple background. As always I’m interested in your comments and thoughts.
