I photographed my friend Dave’s younger sister, Christi, back in the 90s (during my romantic-vaseline-on-the-uv-filter days). I had some images scanned with ScanCafe recently and this was one of them. I love the painterly light on this one—I’m thinking I might need to turn this into a real painting.

I shot this of my friend Teresa when we were in college at Pan Am in Edinburg, Texas. I was definitely on the Renaissance-romantic-princess-fairytale-vaseline-on-the-UV-filter kick in those days. Oh, and I always had to fashion headpieces of flowers out of mom’s flower arrangements to complete the scene. Teresa was a beautiful subject for my lens!

A very different Nicole

3 12 2014

I photographed my friend Nicole several times many years ago (in fact, one photo of her ended up as one of two selected by American Photo magazine in their 2nd Annual Readers Photos Contest—I had two out of the 146 published!—in the early 90s. That photo had her in her “natural state,” with gorgeous Rapunzel-like hair (all hers) in a flowy golden gown. For this session several years later, I brought out my bag ‘o wigs and we decided to totally switch it up. I thought she looked like a mysterious French actress. I did a soft-focus technique with vaseline smeared on a UV filter and also upped the ISO of the film (slide days) to create the grainy look.

Elise is the youngest daughter of my friends James and Irma Williams. She is as equally sweet, funny, and smart as she is beautiful!
