Sometimes it’s really difficult to decide between the color and black & white versions of a photo.
I love her hair color and skin tone in this color version…
But I also really love the tones in this b&w version…
What do you think?

I shot with Tiana Hunter a couple weeks ago. I rented a studio in North Hollywood, which turned out to be nothing more than a space in one of those industrial parks. A big empty concrete space. It was one of those rare cold, rainy days in southern California, and the studio was freezing inside. The tiny space heater barely warmed Tiana if she strayed more than a couple feet from it. It was also her second shoot of the day, after having just arrived in town from New York that day. So she was cold and I’m sure a little tired, but she was a real trooper.
Since there was no natural lighting in the place, I used strobes for the whole shoot. After using mostly natural light on my last couple shoots, I didn’t enjoy using strobes as much as I used to. I found it difficult to find a groove with all the breaks for lighting setup and fiddling with lights in between shots.
Anyway, overall it was a great shoot. Tiana is a fun, wonderful model and a real sweetheart. I hope to shoot with her again in a daylight studio, maybe on her next trip to L.A.

I had a great shoot with Tiana on Saturday, but I’ve barely had a moment to process the photos. Hope to write about the shoot before the end of the week. In the meantime, I posted a few photos from the shoot over on my Flickr account for you to enjoy until I get it together. Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think!
I uploaded a ton of photos from my 2002 and 2003 shoots with Arielle to my Flickr stream today. I will be uploading a lot of older photos over the coming weeks, in preparation for new gallery software that uses Flickr as its source.

I haven’t really used Zooomr since the introduction of Mk III, but now it’s official. Today I moved the photos I had left on Zooomr over to my Flickr account, fixed any blog entries with Zooomr photos, and finally deleted all of my photos from Zooomr.
Please visit my Flickr photostream and add me as a contact there.
Meanwhile, here’s a new photo to start off the new year…
The gallery is still a work in progress, but I have added several collections of my favorite model photos. Let me know what you think.
Lucky you, because here’s another photo of Liz Ashley…
