My latest work over on Redbubble. It’s this cool antique piece hanging in my mom’s house and it used to be a way for hotels to manage their guest’s keys. I have no idea how it works but I love how it looks in black and white.
I have long been obsessed with shadows. I found myself fascinated by these tiny shadows that were in my garage late one evening. The light was hitting them just right and after only a couple of minutes they were gone.
Trying to pay homage to an old master. This red pepper had a cool stem that I had to photograph as soon as I saw it. To create this image I put the pepper on a dark brown fleece blanket near a large window (no reflector for fill light). I stood in a chair to shoot it from above.
In Camera Raw I converted it to black and white, maxed out the clarity, upped the blacks and the contrast. I then used an adjustment brush to slightly darken the right and left side of the pepper. Finally, I added a traditional platinum tone to the image.
