Day 809 of 365 Again. You know what’s funny. I think every 365er who starts out with a point and shoot camera gets to the point that they’re a good enough photographer that they want an SLR. I’m a good enough photographer that I want a point and shoot again. I love my camera. I…

Only one photoshoot behind. Woohoo. I’ll b caught up in no time.

This is Scarlett. She drove up from West Virginia to be part of the Tarot set.

These three pole dancing pics are alternate views of for the Eight of Staffs card which more and more I am not liking as I look at it. The feeling of it just isn’t right. So I’m looking for opinions. Which of these three best fits the mood of the other tarot cards and still convey’s "swiftness" (i’d still have to over saturate it to match the other staff cards and digitally add a tattoo).

More to come.

Day 655 of 365 More.

People always tell me that I never use enough color in my self-portraits. I take the vast majority of them in my darkened studio, just because its easy for me. I decided last night that today I’d take something more colorful. Only after a day at work, it becomes evident that I really don’t go all that many colorful places on a regular day. So I did all I could do, when I got home from work, I took a shot in my front yard. I actually have some really pretty bushes in my yard, so it kind of worked out.

And look, I’m not even wearing black today. Aren’t you impressed.

Wanted to make sure I got this shot done and posted early tonight so I could work on Thursday’s Cosmic Hellcats comic. If you’re not reading it, you should, I think the story is moving along nicely, and I’m rather proud of it.

Also, Stephen was nice enough to draw some Hellcats fan art" which I’ve posted to the site. If you can draw or even if you can’t, I’d love it if you sent us some Hellcats fan art to add to the collection too. Either post it to flickr and tell me here(I miss a lot of what gets posted to flickr, even by my contacts, sadly) or email it to us at feedback@cosmichellcats.com and I’ll toss it up on the website too.

And tell all your friends to read the comic too. The more people reading it, the sooner I can be a fulltime cartoonist, and when i am, that will give me more time for photography too, and you’ll be able to enjoy my art all the more, and you can say "I knew him when…"

See, everybody wins.

Day 510 of 365 More. Now here’s the boring part. I got all the fun parts of Elseworld done. I filmed my lights tutorial for the 365 Podcast. So tonight was spent doing the tedious bits. Fixing mistakes. Shooting retakes. Editting video. Ugh. Why can’t I pick simple hobbies. This is the same kinda stuff…

Day 477 of 365 More. Oh what a difference a day makes. Well, a week, anyway. 1 week ago, I was sitting on the ground in my backyard. Now, I’m sitting on the ground in the mountains of Virginia. That’s called vacation. Actually, it’s been a good day. Steph, Max (our host) and I got…

Day 388 of 365 More. I’ve been in a dreary mood today. I have no idea why. Honestly it was kind of a good day. Had a Labor Day BBQ with various friends from complete different social circles, which always makes for an interesting evening. Finally found out yesterday that I didn’t get the job…

Amaya had the idea of doing a nude photoshoot down at one of her favorite spots in West Virginia. So I took Rachael and Laurie down there to do the shoot with her.

We got there at the crack of dawn to catch golden hour light which provided some amazing results in my opinion.
