50 Portraits – 2 and 3

| currently listening to: Only Love Can Break Your Heart, Neil Young, After the Goldrush, 1970 | LINK

the photography:

Portrait #2 is jackie.
Portrait #3 is katrina.

when i spend enough time in one place i start to remember the way that light fills that space. the street i live on, the rooms in my house, the parking garage elevator, etc.. when i picture these places in my head, i remember the way that the light fills each space and how the perfect light will always look. with these next two additions (i am officially calling them Portraits #2 and Portraits #3 with the shared portrait being Portrait #2/3) to my 50 Portraits Series, i have started to cash in on my favorite lighting spaces. this happens to be the previously mentioned parking garage elevator lobby on the 8th floor across the street. i am in this building 6-7 times a week. in the afternoon, this glass room shimmers and shines with what can only be described as “awesome lighting”. thanks to both models for being good sports about it all.

the funny thing about undertaking this many portraits is to find unique settings, different models, and friends who will help you out along the way. as i sweep through my rolodex and my contacts list on my cell phone, i’m realizing just how much fun this project is going to be. i’m happy to be off to a good start.

the music:
this is such a sad song. i remember listening to it while laying down in my parents living room with the vinyl version of this record spinning around. this was always known as the song just before Southern Man but in a digital world, MP3’s have no order. sad but true. i’ll still listen to Southern Man though… it’s habit.
