Whenever I put together a shoot, I usually have a loose concept in mind. It almost always changes once I start working. When I met Beata at her apartment for this shoot we were going through her clothes when she showed me this vintage dress. It was the dress her mother was wearing the first time she met her late father. I had her try it on and we both knew it was perfect. She lives in a historic apartment in the Gaslight part of Clifton so we just roamed around her neighborhood. Everything fell together wonderfully.
I have been working on these images for a very long time. It's finally time to share a few.
Thank you to my beautiful Model: Kristina Roach and Make Up Artist: Kelly Ledford of Cinci Makeup
Some of these images are part of the show Specific and available for sale at Synthetica-M Gallery in Brighton.
A couple of weeks ago I went on a photo field trip with my friend, Lauren and a few other photographers. We went to this awesome junkyard that was busting at the seams with old motorcycles and cars. The owner, Skip was super cool. I have been dying to do an engagement session at a junkyard. Who wants to have a little fun with me?
I obsess.I've done it my entire life. I obsess over something for a few days or sometimes a few weeks, then I move on. For now my obsession is rain.
Dave and I celebrated the Fourth of July by taking in the firework show on the river in Newport last night. I have never photographed fireworks, so I brought my camera along to experiment.
We had a lot of fun! :)
All of the next images were created by Dave with my iPhone.
I processed them using the Mill Colour App.
Yes it is true, I have declared Thursdays on my blog iPhone Thursday. I will post some of my favorite iPhone photos right here every week so be sure to check back.

I don't really enjoy talking on my phone as much as I love to take pictures with it. I am addicted to it, seriously addicted. I have had it for about 9 months and I have managed to save over 400o pictures that I refuse to erase. I am sure I have probably taken double that, if not more. I have about 25 photo apps, and about 10 I really want to get. It's kinda crazy. But it is also nice to always have a camera with me, because I see something I want to take a picture of everywhere I go.
I snapped a picture of these statues with my Nikon and my iPhone. I like my phone pictures best. I have always been drawn to grain and contrast. This phone and it's apps are great for creating images that are grainy or noisy. I don't mind if things aren't perfectly in focus. It reminds me of using my Holga, but I get the instant gratification of digital.
These are all captured and processed with my iPhone. I get lots of emails about what apps I use, I will try to start including them in my posts when I can remember. Sometimes I just go crazy with a ton of apps on top of each other until I get something I like. I used the Mill Color App on the color photos and PS Mobile on the black and white.
The first two were taken at Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati.
This was taken at the entrance of a horse farm in Kentucky .
This is one of my favorite iPhone photos I have captured. I stumbled upon this beauty after I intentionally got myself lost in Boone County. This one was magic.
If you suddenly seeWhat has happened to me You should spread the word around
And tell everyone here That it is perfectly clear They can sail above it all on what they've found It cries for you It's the best that you can do Like a sound that's everywhere I can hear it screaming through the air
Long live rock and roll
