Two of Cups

Two of Cups

Rima contacted me about posing for the Tarot deck on Wednesday and we shot her on Thursday. It’s about the fatest turnaround I’ve ever done on a shoot, but it was another case of just trying to get a shoot in when both the model and I happened to have time.

I was quite happy to work with her, since through happenstance right now, the deck was very "caucasian." It’s been hard to find people of color for it. Especially women. I was hoping her complexion still comes across well in the B&W.

The big challenge here was representing "love" while only using one person so that it conceptually fit with the other twos in the deck.

Interpretation, comments and criticism welcome as always, and in fact encouraged.

Day 345 of 365 days. I love how my 365 pic views skyrocket every time I post a pic of a half naked girl. I haven’t been online much today, and as such haven’t even really looked at flickr. Sorry about that. Basically I had a choice of things to do today. I could work…

Day 331 of 365 days. Some days it just doesn’t pay to wake up in the morning. So I had a wrestling show in the Middleofnowhere, West Virginia today. Steph was going to go but at the last minute decided she didn’t want to. Probably for the best. I drive about and hour and 15…

Day 319 of 365 days. And I’m home… and I’m exhausted. Oh my god, am I exhausted. I drove all the way from Pittsburgh to New York on Sunday, and Steph and I spent quite a lot of time walking around on Monday, so by the time we were driving home this morning, my ankle…

Ambriella sitting

I love when i meet a model who is absolutely perfect for a Tarot card idea I have. I was talking to my friend Connie (who posed with her son for the Judgement card) and telling her of my idea for the ten and ace of swords cards. I wanted the cutest, most petite, goth girl I could find holding a broad sword bigger than she was. A minute later, Connie found Ambriella on Model Mayhem (where I’ve gotten several models for this project). I wrote her and she was totally into the idea. Hopefully I’ll get to shoot her again soon.

Every once in a while its nice to get out of the studio. Amaya and I went to West Virginia’s Spruce Knob state park to do a photoshoot this week. These are some shots from that fun filled day.

Day 260 of 365 days. From sinful gothic glamour to cute family photos. Oh what a difference a day makes. My former roommates, Sam and Karen wanted me to take a family portrait for them today, so they came over to sit in the studio with their two kids. Sadly I couldn’t get Ted to…
