Smoking!

My newly developed backgrounds for my 8 x 10 inch print go on sale shortly.  Over time we will make the backgrounds available on all prints.  Still getting a feel for this new site, so bear that in mind.  This models name was Latina Angel, and by far my youngest.  She had the knack for modeling, she could hold the pose until I had changed my lens.  A very sweet lady, trying hard to grow-up, now living in the far North.  LOL

Whimsy

Star Falls

 

Welcome to the first of my flight of Whimsy.  When working as a photographer, I am like hunter, seeking…., trying to let nothing escape my notice.  Glittery objects catch the eye, I am lost in my own creative world.  I focus attention, lost in the curls, and the stars.  My eye seeking out the proper angle, let the curls lead…, no the stars.  The idle part of my mind creates a story, birthplace of stars, curling down to earth…., each little sharks teeth, one following another down…, till the ribbon snaps…., star free.  Curl…, rebounds give each star that little snap, and away.  Curl rebounds…, re-curls, springs back…, yoyoing, till the tension catches each curl in it position.

From the King William Fair held in San Antonio, Tx each April.  Used to be free, got too popular for its own good.  A nice family weekend, children welcome, their strollers not so much.   Gets pretty packed, people are looking for other people and not little ones at tripping height.  As photographer/hunter I get freedom of movement so I can stalk my prey, get a clear shot.

A dad asks, can he buy a roll of film off me, so I give what is a fair price for me, considering what I may loose not having that roll of film.  A bit of attitude at the price, I tell him that if it too much fine, I’ll keep it.

Latina Angel

She was one of those “kids” that are at risk, newly eighteen, already trying out the sex trade.  I saw her portfolio which featured tight shot of her pubic region.  I knew I could do a much better job, and maybe show her photographs as art.  She came to the studio, and changed into a really cute short bathrobe.  She sat there, smoking a mile a minute, a haze of blue surrounded her head.  For what seemed like 5 minutes, she when on about what questions she would answer, and never ask personal questions.  She sat there, tight as a spring, and asked, “any questions?”  Yeah, I asked “do you get “nekked”?  She threw off the bathrobe, preening, she turn to me like “feast your eyes on this”!  I studied her saying, “naw, let’s get you in a dress”!

She burst out laughing, and we were friends.  That is an important skill I have, knowing what to say in the moment.  Respecting my models, and having fun at the same time.  And not backing down when they test the limits.

 

 

Latina Angel

girl-l

Easily my youngest and most vulnerable model ever.  After getting comfortable with each other, we settled to the business of art.  That small chip she carried on her shoulders fell off, and she began to trust me.  After the session when I showed her what I had gotten, she turned to me and said this like “real art”.  I told her there was a difference to working with me, I have your back still.

Arroyo

scuba

Took this lady down into an arroyo hence the dive suit.  A warm Texas day so the suit stuck to her, she needed my help in getting out of it.  Even though she was used to posing nude, it was a good way to break the ice and get comfortable.  Cross processed the film and the background was more than a pleasant surprise.
