This group of photos was shot with my Fuji x100, ISO 800, raw editing done in Aperture, and black and white conversion performed in Silver Efex Pro. Thank you Steve, visiting your website has been a daily ritual of mine for over a year now, your opinions and real world tests has been refreshing and tremendously influential. I am early in my photography and could not appreciate this opportunity any more.
These photographs portray the apprehension and sexual tension that exists between two platonic individuals whose relationship stumbles along the line of intimacy and ultimately, vulnerability. A conflict between multiple states of mind exist. Experiences and scars from one’s past struggle to outweigh the ethereal nature of new love. These photographs reveal a level of human intimacy that I hope the viewer finds genuine.
I am incredibly grateful to have met such a wonderful person, model, and photographer who continues to challenge and inspire my artistic contribution.
