A New Chapter

July 28, 2011

If you’ve been following the blog, one thing I’m sure you’ll have noticed, is the distinct lack of people. While I have strayed from this format occasionally, I’ve tried to create “people free” landscapes for the most part. What Fredericksburg would look like the day of the Zombie apocalypse, perhaps. That being said, one of the things I love about living in the Fredericksburg area, is the people. So I’ve been wanting to supplement the landscapes with portraiture. But again, since this project is about seeing differently, I didn’t want to create candid snaps of people on the street, and I certainly didn’t want to create traditional portraiture. Which is why, to start, I’ve decided to work with the tight, wide angle portrait. I like it because of the detail, the perspective, and the notion that it challenges the subject as much or more than it challenges me. The first of my victims is my good friend, Michael. And the second is my lovely wife, Lisa. If you see me on the street, and are up for a portrait, let me know!

    The day of the zombie apocalypse, there’d be lots of people running around going, “Eeek! Zombies!!” Which is sort of what I look like in this portrait (but I like it).

    Interesting portraiture, really gives you a close up of their eyes.
