Please feel free to comment on, either positively or negatively, on my technical execution - that has been the best way for me to learn. If you see that I'm doing something wrong, please point it out; I've already gotten some excellent feedback from several photographers here on DA. At the same time, please be courteous to the models in your comments in this gallery.

Please note: My photos are not that good that someone would want to favorite a large number. If you favorite large numbers of my photos (like five or more) in a short time and your gallery is empty, you will likely be blocked. Same thing if you favorite large numbers of my pics and your favorites gallery is filled with what I consider porn. One DA member favorited every single photo in the Bobbie Smyth series; I couldn't block him fast enough.

Favourite photographer: Too many to choose from
Favourite style of art: Impressionism
Operating System: Windows 7 - got rid of Vista!
MP3 player of choice: iPod Touch
As I mentioned in my last journal post, I have been working on editing the two recent art nude shoots I'd done.  Today I finally posted the pics from the older one from January 19th.  Desert Beauty ( was in town - she's from Arizona - and I was able to shoot her in a Brooklyn studio.  This was different experience for me in that this was my first "solo" shoot: I wasn't part of a group all shooting at the same time, and I had the freedom to change props and sets at will, as well as re-situate the lights.  I actually felt more comfortable working this way - I've got to do this more often! 

I had an hour to work, and I lost some time at the beginning due to a cell phone number snafu (the shoot organizer gave me his number but transposed two digits, so I couldn't reach him, which made finding the studio much more difficult).  Still, I got a lot done, even with the lost time and resulting discombobulation.  I still had issues with pushing the ISO too hard, and a number of the photos have a grainy look to them, but I was not unhappy.
