Can Do

Immersion in family and friends, strong desire to capture who they are now, scrambling to find good light to do it. And plain backdrops or compositionally beneficial environments.When you get both just right… that’s the good stuff.

Ain’t nothin’ more than a wall above the piano here with a window nearby. The kind of look I yearn to recreate in the studio. Silvery heaven light, all everywhere with the perfect shadow blend.

Next time anybody wants a picture of themselves, just speak up. It might take some running around and tattered conversation (light-finding is more than just looking), but we’ll get there. And we’ll probably have to try a couple different setups as my mind is whipped into some strange internal frenzy, trying to give you the best photo you’ve ever had of yourself.

No fake smiles though.
