I always try and take a few pictures of the sky when I'm in the desert. The unobstructed skyline, and relative lack of light pollution are too inviting to pass up. Also just hanging out in the dark in the desert alone is a strange experience. This particular photo was taken without a tripod, in the Sheephole Valley Wilderness, using a hoodie to 'stabilize' the camera on the top of my car. The light in the foreground is from the headlights of a passing car. The universe is right there, look up!
Forgot to post some photos from a collaborative shoot I did with Jewelweed Floral Studio a few months ago. I set up a mobile studio in the store, Sarah created a set full of plants, Adele modeled, and we went from there. It was super fun and I love how the photos came out.
I am deeply thankful that I was able to shoot a series of portraits and factory interior shots for a story in the NYT's concerning the Fuyao Glass Company and some of the company's employees. The photos were shot over two days in Dayton, OH with the cooperation of the local UAW office (for portraits) and Fuyao (for factory shots). Here are four people photos, find the whole article here.
