So I went out into the world of Kansas Cities art district and found Erin Lavin in the frame shop she owns with her Dad. She was great! allowing me to shoot while she worked on framing a painting for a local artist. I also drafted Lindsey to be my VLS (Voice Activated Light Stand). While I realize my technique for the one light set up needs some work (A LOT OF WORK!), I am pretty happy with the way these turned out. Its a building process, right? Maybe for me its a renovating process, deconstructing the little knowledge I have and building from there.
One other thing... After I shot this assignment I dug into my archive and went looking for some strobed out frames. Found this one of my Grandmother at her 90th birthday party a few years back. That lady is still kicking, drives us all crazy but she is on track to make 100.(photo below)
