A good MUA!



I have come to the conclusion that in order to get your photography to the next level you have to, have to get a good makeup artist, hair stylist, and clothing stylist. One of the things that I love about photography is all the elements that go into making a good image. One has to think about lighting, composition, editing, clothing, makeup, hair, etc... The list is long. This is also the frustrating thing about photography, its not just about showing up and having the right and latest equipment. One has to think or at least pay attention to all the elements that go into making an image. This weekend I worked with an excellent MUA. She made all the difference in the quality of the images produced.

Legs & Shoes

Legs & Shoes

I think I have a thing about women's legs and shoes. Actually, I know I have a thing for women's legs & shoes. I was shooting with other photographers and I noticed one of the models had a great pair of legs (the face was just OK), but the legs were great. So, I decided to shoot leg & shoes, and I think it came out OK. I am thinking of doing a whole series of legs and shoes images. I was once approached by a gentlemen by the name of John Ashford ( from NY to shoot his shoes, unfortunately we couldn't connect, but his shoe line is wonderful.

Check his website out.

Originally I didn't like this image, but each image that I take, has its own qualities and dictates to me how it should be processed (my 2 cents). I was going to leave it in color, but when I changed it to BW, that's when the image took off, for me.


Shana - Don't mess with me

This is Shana from NY. She is of Trinidadian decent. She was in Atlanta for the weekend and we connected for a shoot. I rented a studio for the day to shoot, and had fun. I do love her look, she has a different look than the typical model.
