Last month I joined the website, modelmayhem.com in an effort to connect with both photographers and models with the goal of eventually taking my own photographs to serve as the basis of my work.
A side benefit of joining the site was the direct contact with photographs that are properly credited. This makes it much easier to ask for permission to create my own work.
The image to the right is based on a photograph taken by Walter Kurtz, of the model Nick Gogel.
The original photo is rather large, so I placed the vertical line of Nick's body at the classic 1/3 position.
The lightest shade of this cutting is slightly lighter in shade than my previous blue cuttings. I did this to emphasize the brightness of the light coming through the window.
The image below is the same piece, shown off axis.
This piece was auctioned off at Trevor NextGen's Spring Fling 2012, held to benefit The Trevor Project.
Thank you, Dan.
