Work in Progress @ -2F

When temperatures top -2F in Chicago, it's almost impossible for me to work outside. Sure, I can get a few people to stand barefoot in a strapless gown on a frozen stream - but is it nice to do that to someone?!  Not really. And my fingers get cold when adjusting shutter and f/stops.

So when it's too cold to work outside, I take my work inside.

Indoor shoots are sometimes a challenge for me - a welcome challenge though. I find my indoor locations the same way I find my outdoor locations - I see them and assess them. I am constantly asking myself questions when visiting friends homes or attending events. Is there something I can use here? Would the owner be willing to allow me to use it? Can I get a model to pose here? How does this space work with my themes? Do I need props? Etc...

I love to photograph in natural light as well as with lighting equipment. Sometimes I photograph in the same location at different times of day utilizing both natural light and artificial light.

Below are a few images that I've been working on. I've shot a few sets in this location. I feel the space lends itself nicely to my themes.

The first 3 images were created using artificial lighting in the evening.

I must really take a moment to thank my models - most of which are friends of mine that spend their days off doing things for me that they normally wouldn't do without a few drinks. My friends and models, I tip my hat to you!
