Light Graffiti

All work and no play is sad indeed, so my trusty sidekick Will and I set out on a night time adventure.  We met up with Leah in a rather shady part of town with the goal of creating an interesting night time image.  There was no point to it other than playing and being creative.

We literally painted the scene with a flash light and the result was at least interesting.  After Leah left, Will and I stayed to create a few more compositions.  It was great to watch Will (who is twelve BTW) get excited about trying a new angle or sweep of the light.

Believe it or not, this image is also straight out of the camera.  You can see Will in the background swinging a flashlight in a circular pattern while I paint the model.

How will history remember you? Okay, that's heavy, and we just met, so I'll take the pressure off and begin again by introducing myself. My mission is to help you answer that first question. I want to show you and your world in a way you haven't seen before and at some point hopefully incite a small riot inside your head. An unapologetic Gen-X warrior for self-expression, I help people tell their stories. Not just the pretty and polished, "made for Linkedin" version, but the real essence of their legacy. At my core, I'm a visual artist. The still photographic image has been my story telling medium for decades. Now I use words, images and on the rare occasion images in motion to push others to be more, do more and express more than they originally thought was reasonable. Are you still reading this? Really? I'm impressed. Moving on... I am Southern, though not fried. In my view, Bar-b-que should be enjoyed with any sauce on hand at the time. There is no need to quibble over which style of sauce best compliments. The real question is, "slaw or hushpuppies?" The correct answer is, "yes!".
