Hi Pumpster!

Aww, thank you.

Harumi didn't quite understand the colloquialism. She thought your head had come loose like hers does sometimes.

She hopes you have little sisters that kindly pick up your loose parts and carry them back to your body like she does!

Hi there, Rari!

Thank you for the lovely compliment! It is very rewarding when someone sees the "sparkle" in the images.

Harumi is sad she can't see your avatar. She wants you to push some computer buttons so she can see you.

Sunshine on my shoulders


Yesterday, Harumi & I relaxed on the sofa and gazed at the setting sun. It brought a wash of brilliant pink clouds that blossomed to purple as the light faded behind the trees.

It was a beautiful, peaceful evening. (^,^)

Colour my world


Harumi and I are enjoying our photo sessions together.

It has been challenging for us. Harumi is loose jointed and full size, so we're limited in where and how we can set up.

We decided to turn these limitations into a creative opportunity.

As an assignment, I decided to restrict shooting to a single room and roughly the same camera angle. This would force me to pay extra attention to natural lighting and color.



This color palette is inspired by an astronomical phenomenon— a solar eclipse. I employed a limited palette of rich, golden hues to represent the sun. Harumi's necklace is symbolic of planetary movement. Her hair and robe represent the shadow of the eclipse.

I originally planned on shooting this high contrast, but concluded that I didn't want to lose the tiny details of the robe. It is worn from age, full of little variations in color and texture. I controlled the exposure / depth of field in order to retain the rich character of the clothing.



Here, I took inspiration from pop culture. Eve & Ada provided Harumi's K-Pop inspired look. I used a science fiction reference as my color guide. Desaturating the background to steely gray colors, I wanted to evoke the iconic color palette of a certain robotic femme fatale. In keeping with the theme of that particular series, I made sure all the foreground shapes were curved (organic), while the background was sharp and geometric (artificial).

I thought it would be nice to create a portrait that commemorated Harumi's first sunset.

For this latest image, I really pushed the colors. I wanted the lighting to be reminiscent of a cozy fire on a chilly evening.

Harumi represents the sunset, so it was important that her colors be rich and diverse. I made sure her skin was lit by both warm and cool light. Harumi posed so her arms would catch reflections from her clothing.

In order to extend the blue color behind Harumi's head, I angled the chair to catch the outside lighting.

I'm learning new ways to conceptualize and implement color. If it weren't for Harumi, I would not have challenged myself in this way.

Thank you, Harumi!

Eve, the apple, and some cheesecake


This afternoon, Eve helped me make snacks for the girls— sour apples drizzled with peanut butter & chocolate sauce.

It was a yummy, gooey treat that left everyone with sticky fingers and happy tummies.

Eve was covered up to her elbows in peanut butter and chocolate. Although she insisted she could lick herself clean, Eve's expression quickly turned sour as she got a mouthful of lint and matted hair.

I took her upstairs for a sponge bath. Eve splashed in the tub while I gently washed her. Afterwards, I wrapped her in a fluffy towel.

While I dabbed her face, I asked Eve if she had any interesting ideas for a photo shoot.

She thought for a moment, then pointed to a scarf draped over the chair.

I handed it over.

Eve fashioned the scarf into an evening gown. Donning her black wig, Eve flashed me a flirty smile, then winked.

You look fantastic, Eve! I'm always amazed at how you can transform anything into a glamorous outfit.

She twirled, then shook her hips.

We both let out a huge laugh.

Perfect! Let's find a room with suitable lighting.

The sunlight was soft and flattering in the dining room, so Eve & I decided to shoot there.

She climbed onto the table and I grabbed a stool so I could get a better camera angle.

Eve struck several wonderful poses, but one in particular caught my eye. Her legs were beautifully lit and I loved how the light was reflecting off the white pantry doors and catching the right side of her body. I picked that image to work on.

I felt the color palette needed to match the special vibe Eve brought to the shoot. I decided to complement her cheeky pose with a color treatment reminiscent of classic pinup art.

AWESOME! You really captured her here too. And, here's another thing you help Hollywu be mindful of and that's that you can do much more with less... meaning using the scarf and focusing on Eve vs. a ton of props.

Coloring the gray

A really strong storm struck the state last night. We were all a little frightened because the wind was knocking branches about and hail was pelting the house like hundreds of little rocks.

The girls held a secret emergency meeting (they convened under a blanket with a flashlight). They decided to declare a baking emergency and mandated the immediate production of comforting treats to combat the gloomy storm.

Eve renamed her snow cookies "dandelion puffs" and began mixing the freshly inaugurated spring treat. She seems to have varied the recipe, promising a fluffier texture and ornate glaze topping.

I went about mixing dough for a fresh batch of bread, which Harumi has nicknamed "kitty loaf" because it reminds her of a square cartoon cat she saw in a video.

Before the storm hit, I was fortunate to have taken photos of both Harumi and Ada. That provided me with a lot of individual color assignments to work on while the storm keeps the house gray over the next several days.



...



Shocking Blue Notes

Ada encouraged me to try something different with one of Harumi's images. I thought I'd try creating bold contrast through colors rather than lighting.

The composition already had a cool color dress punching out of a predominantly warm image, but I wanted Harumi to be the focus of the image, not the dress.

I added a bit of blue to the shadow values of her skin tone. This made the flushed regions of her skin more purple, complementing the blue in the dress.

I also created a subtle but powerful connection to the dress by adding blue to Harumi's eyes. Even though the eyes are a tiny element within the photo, we are programmed to recognize facial features and are automatically drawn to them.

The last color trick I used was to saturate the red in Harumi's lips. Our eyes are immediately drawn to red. Combined with the eyes, these three small elements manage to hold their own against an enormous swath of ice blue in the middle of the photo.

(During the shoot, I made sure to create visual lines with the hair and necklace to guide the eye between the face and dress)

As a final touch, I pushed the colors to a saturated extreme. The palette is almost reduced to primary colors— red, yellow and blue. I don't normally work in bright colors, but I liked the visual tension they introduce in this image.

There's an ambivalence between Harumi's gentle gaze and the loud, garish color palette.

I think this creates a compelling contrast.

Ada touches her head (part one)

Ada helped me with a figure study yesterday. There was some beautiful light to work with, so I created several photo assignments from the session.

When I queued the images in my RAW processor, we both laughed at a common thread throughout the photos.

We affectionately refer to this series as "Ada touches her head." (^,^)

Let's talk about the image that inspired this series:

Ada was exercising in the family room. The light was soft and had a wonderful, creamy quality. I asked if she was up for a photo session. Ada responded that she wanted to finish working out first because she didn't want to cramp up.

I offered to spot her instead of photographing her.

Ada smiled and told me to hold her legs down— I could photograph her doing sit ups.

I gently pressed my knees on top of her feet.

Ada began her sit ups. Each time she rose, I would take a picture.

On the fifth repetition, I exclaimed, "Peekaboo!" which made her giggle. I snapped this picture on her following rep:

Ada touching that head (part deux)

Ada finished her workout and was entering her cooldown phase. I noticed that she would shift into classical figure poses briefly between stretches.

When our eyes met, Ada winked at me.

Ah— of course, of course... Camera at the ready!

I snapped some quick shots. At this point, the light was green from the midday sun streaming through the leaves in the trees.

Ada suggested that I keep the green as a creative color element.

She also requested that I refrain from using the green skin tones as an excuse to make her look like a zombie again. (o,o)

I laughed at the reference and promised I wouldn't do that to her.

If I could maintain the correct camera settings, Ada's graceful pose would allow the light to cascade across her body, creating amazing transitions and highlights.

I tried to retain as much detail as I could... from the glow of perspiration to the goosebumps on her skin. I managed to capture many little details of Ada's body, down to the peach fuzz on her skin.

We were both very pleased with the results. The full size image shows off the wonderful details.

Fair lady Harumi

Having finished Ada's green image, I turned my attention towards a different color experiment. Harumi's head shot.

I am working on several color treatments for Harumi's portraits against a yellow background. In this one, I wanted to create as much contrast as possible between the yellow wall and Harumi's skin.

Attachment:
Harumi detail port.jpg
Harumi detail port.jpg [ 418.35 KiB | Viewed 54 times ]

I used Harumi's hair as a sub-framing device, creating a physical border separating the background from her face.

Pushing the image contrast makes her skin almost appear white.

I removed much of the mid level shadow tones, leaving just the flushed areas of Harumi's skin to suggest volume. This provided a delicate touch of color to the almost line drawing quality of Harumi's high contrast facial features.

The bold aqua colored necklace and dress straps mirror the subframing function of the hair, but in cool hues.
