    Love these photos and the lighting is fantastic, but can’t figure out who the woman is with the wormlike scars on her face….Help?

    These are great shots – clearly, there are people who take Halloween far more seriously than I do! On the other hand, there was that year I transformed myself into a marina power center…

    I like the blur effect because of the depth of field.

    I also really like the play of light and shadow in the I am guessing Hercule Poirot, or maybe one of the Robber Barrons of the early 20th century geez, did I really type that. i am getting younger every minute) That was a great way to play up his costume (mostly black with touches of white) using light and shadow.

    Kudos to the folks doing the makeup for these photos, or if you did it yourself, Really nice work. The makeup gave the photographer just enough shadow to pay it off the various costumes while not consuming the lights that appear in great places!

    Very well done. I have always wished that I had a more artistic talent of the nature that you have. I am a writer and amateur watercolor painter (those are always experiences because I never know what my brain is going to do). I am also an amateur photographer. Heavy emphasis on amateur; my best shots were pure accidents. i can’t stage something or manage an off guard moment the way that some photographers, like yourself, can do. Mine, even when not posed, end up looking well, posed.

    Anyhoo, I love your photography, your use of light and shadow,and different types of film to acheive exactly what you want. And, your candid shots are great.

    Your work is absolutely breathtaking. So much so that I am using one as a desktop photo. Thank you for sharing your work with all of us.

    Your photography is so amazing. I loved taking a class in high school, which was in 1998, but I have recently thought about taking another one. These pictures are great!
