Focus on what’s important…

Sometimes I will struggle for months to learn a skill in Photoshop. Often I will learn it and then not have a need to use my hard w0n knowledge for months and months…to the point that I sometimes forget that I ever knew it and I go back to the beginning of the learning curve. Then there are times when I remember bits and pieces and then it all comes back!

Today is one of those times.  All of this just to say: I did a thing!

Chalina & Kelly: Best Friends who have Just Met!

FYI: I am still working on the FanFusion pics as an event. I am getting closer to being done every day!  As of this moment I have only posted 3 images to Flickr, just to have an album ready when I am done editing. Here’s the link: https://www.flickr.com/photos/keyholeprod/albums/72157708865917997 if you so choose…

While wondering the hallways of Phoenix Fan Fusion 2019, I happened upon these two beautiful ladies having a rather excitedly animated discussion in front of the windows. As it happens, I needed to rearrange my gear and decided to use the table they were standing next to. Please understand, I did not INTEND to eves-drop on their conversation. But I could not help but to pick up on this very intense, very Positive Energy they were both generating while they spoke. Intoxicating.

While I was finishing messing with my camera gear, naturally I asked if I could get a few photos. You know…like ya do… They agreed and as we were shooting I asked how long they’ve been friends. About 5 minutes Chalina told me. Kelly added that they had just met as they were leaving a panel, and somehow wound up talking like best friends! That’s when I showed up!

Now, here is just the barest sample of the resulting images:

Devan Rodgers Hair Toss – Junkyard

Devan Rodgers’ next animation is the “Hair Toss”. Unlike the Hair Flip…the Hair Toss doesn’t require the model to get dizzy.
Once again, this was shot at “Sasserfraz Pictures – Home Of “The Junkyard Shoot out”

Lonna Manson

Lonna Manson is a traveling model I met a couple of years ago at the very first Junkyard Shootout I attended.

I finally had an opportunity to work with her again. One of the most “comfortable in her skin” people I have ever met… I had a great time on this shoot!

The Kiss (AZRF 2017)

I had such fun taking pics with these two beautiful ladies earlier in the day, I couldn’t resist a few more at the end of the day.
I don’t recall who’s idea it was for Kylie to kiss her friend… (I know it wasn’t mine!) But it worked out so well I made this animation of the shots. I just can’t decide if I prefer the Color version or B&W.  Thoughts?

Oh, here are the links to the whole set on Flickr…in case you missed that!

In the Hidden Forest with Miranda

In the desert of Phoenix Arizona, there is a place…a hidden place…a Forest place. With trees and water and animals that can only be found if you have the right guide…or if you book a photo shoot with me!

That’s what Miranda did. And with the help of the amazing MUA Dakota Navarro she transformed herself into several Fantasy Characters, and a Prom Queen.
I present to you: Miranda in the Hidden Forest On Flickr.

Introducing: Samantha

This amazing image is from a very impromptu test shoot I did today with Samantha.  Actually, it wasn’t even supposed to be a Test Shoot at all…just a Creative Meeting to discuss a future shoot. But as we were talking I realized what time of day it was, and I asked if she would be willing to do a few shots in my favorite room…This was one of the results.
Here are a few more images of this beautiful and talented model on Flickr.
