Thinking about making a series of dead flowers...

Not Enough Time...

Another photo dredged up from an old shoot.

Sweet mother of pearl! Finally done mixing the album and ready to burn CDs...

This track originally was not going to be on the album, but I made a last minute decision to include it, so here it is:

Resurrecting "lost" photos

I love going back into my pile of unused shots when I'm bored and seeing if I can salvage some. Here's one I found last night that was taken while testing my light settings. It's badly underexposed, so the rules went out the window and I felt free to play with it as much as I liked. The resulting photo was added to my portfolio on ModelBrigade and was immediately chosen as a showcase photo! Kind of makes it worth all the extra effort. Here it is:

Mixing underway...

Finally, the mixing for Revenant is underway and I'm hoping to have something tangible for CD ordering soon. Finances are tight and I'm funding this thing all by myself, so there are no promises for an actual release date since it depends on when I can afford to print the CDs and artwork. Here's the cover:

And a couple sample tracks:

Move by will alone

Pure as we begin.
Pure as we come in.
Pure as we begin.
Ruled by will alone.

Pure as we begin.
Here we have a stone.
Gather, place, arrange so,
Shelter turns to home.

Pure as we begin.
Here we have a stone.
Throw to stay the stranger.
swatcher crushes bone.

Ruled by will alone.

Spark becomes a flame.
Flame becomes a fire.
Light the way or warm this.
Home we occupy.

Spark becomes a flame.
Flame becomes a fire.
Forge a blade to stay the stranger.
Take whatever we desire.

Moved by will alone.
Pure as we begin.

Pure as we begin
Move by will alone.
Leave as we come in.
Pure as light.
Return to one.

Move by will alone.
Move by will alone.

-Tool, Intension

Such a simple concept, yet so universally true.

Friends make great models...

I've learned this over the years. Sometimes the best models aren't models at all. I started this whole phase of photographing people from friends insisting on me shooting them over a decade ago. I like shooting with people that I know. The photos almost seem to have stories that way. It's an interaction. A friend from work recently asked me to shoot her and here are a few of the resulting photos from that. All wardrobe and props were her idea.

My new love

First foreplay with Black Betty

I don't know how I ever lived without her...

Some flowers to kill the time...

Unemployment does wonders for the creative process.
