And now for something completely different

Okay so I don't take pictures of people...  Made an exception this time for this young model who wanted me to take some images of her while she was dressed in her version of the character "St. Jimmy" from the Green Day musical "American Idiot".

I souped this one up a bit in Lightroom to make it more dramatic.  Thank goodness for presets because I'm pretty sure I'm not smart enough to figure out how to do this on my own.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Simply Hardware #6 - Elbows

Another in the hardware series.  This one was printed large for the show and the silver gelatin print was really striking.  Hope you like it.

What a friend we have...

Took my camera to church on Sunday morning to take photos of my nephew who was going to be an altar server for the first time.  At the end of the Mass I wandered around a little bit and ended up on the altar.  This cross has been hanging in the church since I first started going there 24 years ago, but I don't think I really noticed it much because it's all wood and normally hangs against a wood wall so it doesn't stand out much.  Sunday morning it did and I captured this version.  I did major burning around the edges to give it a vignette effect.  What do you think?
