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.
