Halloween Self Portrait

 Theresa and I assumed Dia de los Muertos style for Halloween this year.  After walking around Boulder for a bit we decided we needed to immortalize the look in the studio.  Theresa did her own makeup, Cassandra did mine.  We did the photo ourselves with nobody else helping.

This shot was done in four separate lighting moments within a single exposure.  Theresa and I were not exposed within the image together simultaneously, each of us were lit independently by the other.

 

Amy Kresse, Secret Music

I got to shoot with fellow Canadian Amy Kresse a little while ago.  She has a wonderful story and has released a new album to accompany it.  She wanted to do a light painting shot for the cover about releasing her music, her magic, into the world.  This shot is what we came up with.  Her manager put the text on there but otherwise this image is as-shot.

You can check out her site and music at http://amykressmusic.com/
