As cooler temperatures and shorter days have forced me to create photographs inside, my work has taken on a different tone. It has become darker, dreamier, more sensual. I recently did a series that was inspired by the musical, The Phantom of the Opera, a work whose dark sensuality I find to be extremely moving. I am sharing a couple of the photos from that series with you.
These images play with light, shadow, and depth of field. On the technical side, I used a 50mm lens that has a large aperture (f/1.8 in this case). This leads to some nice blurring of the out-of-focus areas and highlights certain aspects of the photos, giving the overall scene a dreaminess and a softness.
With winter approaching and my introspective side coming out to play, you can expect to see more work from me like this.
Until next time...
