Fallen Leaves...

Hello Lovelies~

I hope you are all well this week. I have so much to share. First, I have entered my work in an international photo competition called One Life. There is a public voting aspect to it, so if you have a few seconds, stop here and vote. Thank you!


As I think I mentioned in the last post, I send out a Halloween card every year to friends and family and this year, I did a little shoot for it. It came out so well, that I've listed Mary & Owen Nette in my shop! A big thank you to my models for playing with me as usual.


I have also listed some new photos from the Fryeburg Fair in the shop. Here are a few of them, I think they came out really well. (I really can't get enough of the fair as you all well know by now...)


I stumbled across the work of a photographer I wanted to share with you. Jeffrey Scott's work is beautiful and very disturbing (and not safe for work, so click on that link at home Kiddies). My favorite pieces are the ones below, where he ages them to look like old cabinet cards but the imagery itself is influenced by a more modern aesthetic like H.R. Giger etc. Neat, creepy stuff.


Seldom do you see the work of someone who speaks to the aesthetic and mood that you're trying to achieve in your own work. The work of Dave Hill does just that. The lighting, the mood, the characters, the visual narrative, he does it in spades Folks. He's more than a photographer, he's an artist. When you see the behind the scenes clips, it's amazing what he achieves and how he does it. Take a look:


I'm going to make a movie recommendation for the upcoming Halloween holiday. Like vampires? Have you seen The Hunger yet? No? Well, then check it out. It's artsy, beautiful and stars David Bowie, Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon. Mainly known for its love scene between Sarandon and Deneuve, I think it has a lot more to offer than just that...

though, that's not too shabby.

Until next time: unpleasant dreams...

The Fryeburg Fair is my favorite state/county fair. I used to go every year when I lived in New Hampshire, but haven't been in quite awhile.
And the work of Jeffery Scott is great, thanks for sharing it.
