Study for Flesh and Rust 1
Photos from the Flesh and Rust series (this includes all of the model with vehicle images in this gallery).
I often work with models in the process of creating one of my oil paintings. I’ve been doing this for several years now. The thing is, I’ve always used the photos as a reference and nothing more. Well, with some nudging from my wife, I have begun to approach the photography as art itself. Of course, not everything turns out great (or for that matter, good). But I do occasionally capture some images that I am particularly pleased with for one reason or another.
So here are a handful of images from the Flesh and Rust photo shoots. Please feel free to critique the photography. There is no manipulation of any kind here. Not even so much as a little brightness adjustment. These are the shots I took. Ok, some did require a little cropping…
