Catarina

Studio Nude, 2018

Autumn is the busiest time of the year for me, it seems.   It’s the busiest time of the year at my office, which has me working overtime – both evenings and weekends – and there are other events to attend, but I’ve also been away for a few weekends, too, doing things.
Still, I finally had some time for myself this long holiday weekend and was able to find the time to scan some new photos to make a new post here.
As far as my art nude photography goes, during the colder months of the year, I am basically restricted to working in my living room studio set-up.  This is a very limiting place to work – some tungsten lights plus a quartz light, with a couple of soft backdrops.  The most limiting part of it, though, is the limited space in which to work.  I sometimes ask myself why I still do this, as I don’t know how much more I can do that’s any different from the photos that I’ve made there already.

Despite that, last month I photographed Catarina during her visit to New York.  On my previous sessions here, I had used a gray backdrop with a couple of lights, but this time I decided to go more basic, with one light and a black backdrop.
Here are a few photos from that session that I recently scanned.  Despite the limitations inherent in the setting, I like them.
