My Bio
First off... I an NOT a photoshop artist.

My images in my port are NOT touched up any more than contrast or color correction. (With just a few exceptions for creative effect.) A few are even raw originals, only re-sized to fit.

I'm a Central Florida Photographer with an interest in Creative, Fashion, Fine Art, Editorial, Concert/Event and Alternative Modeling.

I work primarily in digital and do many "same day" TFP/CD studio and location shoots. I love new ideas and exotic looks/locations. (My studio is near Disney around Medieval Times on SR-192)

I have worked with award winning stylists, MUA's, designers and models as well as other area photographers.

The images in my port represents my photography skills and NOT my photoshop skills. Most images are close to raw and have only minor color/contrast adjustments if any (with a few creative exception.)

If you need to build your portfolio, I can help. E-mail me with your needs to work out schedule and availability.

I love the composition and the natural lighting. There is a great glow on her face that does not overpower her or distract from the image. I would have probably repositioned her shoes farther to the left, behind her feet, or even had her hold them by the inside of the heel with just the tips of a finger or two.

Great choice in doing this in black and white. The image has great contrast with just the right amount of grays in my opinion.

Although it looks slightly like she is focusing on her stance or pose, (like holding in her stomach,) it is still definitely a natural look at a glance without being awkward.

Lovely model and setting.
Frosty patterns
Thank you... I think... (Critique well done, but kinda harsh on the rating IMHO)

I didn't really alter the image other than color balance correction to match true color temperature... (The color is pretty spot on from my monitor.)
It was about the hair. This was a shoot for the stylist first and foremost, model second.

I do admit that directing the model more is a weak point of mine that I have been trying to work on.

I do appreciate your honesty though.
This reminds me... I'll have to post pictures of the new setup...
Upgraded to a two tent setup with front porch, dining room, his/hers closets, seated breezeway/hallway, and bedroom.
Roughing It
Hey... I was there! ;-)
That was my last year camping with Trimaris before moving to Vlad's Pleasure Pavilion.

Thanks.
I originally planned to shoot a whole series of this concept with her in different locations. Hopefully we'll find the time to do it again.
