I have a weakness for grainy, shadowy images that look like they came out of the 50s. It isn't the only thing I do, but with every shoot I try to get a least one roll of grainy old film into the mix.

Here is a nice portrait of Amy Ried. This is one of my best selling prints on Ebay. I like making big prints and I printed this image as large as 20 x 20 inches. I didn't know who Amy was when we did the shoot. I've since discovered that she has a large fan base around the world.
I love the short focus from the 1.4 lens and the grainy, 3200 speed film. I didn't know that this woman was a dominatrix until she dumped her bag of props out on the floor. She was very inventive and we had a great shoot.

Shooting with two models gives you some opportunities to create narratives and scenarios.

Some lighting experiments with a first time model. After about five minutes though, she was an experienced model.
I like to use a coffee cup as a prop. I know it makes no sense from a practical standpoint to place a cup of coffee on your chest when you are laying down, but I thought it made an interesting photo.
