Light Study

I was always a painter, particularly with oils. It was my first love and so was a natural reference point when I was searching for a direction or a purpose with my photography. I’m methodic, I repeat processes until I’m satisfied with the results and then I repeat them some more. I was feeling flabby and flaccid as a photographer, worn down by relentless grind of commercial photography, lacking challenge and an identity. This shoot is nothing more than a test. Its a study, like life drawing. I’m honing my skills, sharpening my teeth.
