It’s been a rather productively busy week, but I finally found some time to edit a handful of shots from this last Saturday.

Amber had been eager to catapult into a more adventurous direction with our shooting, and the results make for a fantastic finish to this October/November flurry I’ve had (unless something sneaks in during the last days before December).

It’s a comfortable feeling, having this process of numerous recent shoots. It’s been some time since I’ve shot this much…Saturday marking the fourth time in the last 30 days.

Jess snagged a friend and made the road trip from PA to visit this last weekend. It was more accidental than planned, as we ran into each other on facebook after she’d recently started an account. Casual conversation led to the topic of pictures and, before long, we were determining the possibility of a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants visit. It was quite a bit of fun and it appears my restaurant booth is starting to claim enough victims to perhaps garner its own separate gallery.

Maybe I’ll get around to that during my next fit of needing to update the site. For now, though, the pictures from Saturday.

I recently finally got around to ripping all of my Tori CDs onto my computer hard drive, so I could listen to them all on shuffle/repeat. Now, with just over 1 brand new gigabyte of music running pretty much constantly from my speakers, I was prompted to revisit my interest in continuing The Tori Project.

I had shot an entire set of these images years ago, specifically with Icicle in mind, and yet never got around to formally finishing one for the project. So, a few years late, I finally have the image ready here and have appropriately added it to the website gallery as well.

The title really isn’t quite as cryptic as it initially seems (despite the usual style of my written expression). It’s just the niftiest anagram of BlueRiverDream that I found that at least seemed to have some relevance to the images I’d recently shot with her.

Even when the setup is totally whimsical and spontaneous, when the image themes have no relevance to anything directly pertinent to my own inner musings…the process of imagery creation still has the ability to relax and assuage when the artistic partner is a vestige of creative and personal connection. I suppose that’s my elaborate way of saying: good friends are happy things.

Anyhow, on with the pictures:

It occurred to me that I don’t do nearly as much shooting of male models as I’d like. Granted, this occurred to me after Joe had approached me upon hearing I was a hobbyist photographer because he’d thought about giving modeling a try. A convenient miniature epiphany. We tried mixing enough variety to provide for a few looks and I’m rather pleased about how they turned out.
