I’ve heard that Helmut Newton was a master of shooting in harsh mid-day light.  Studying his outdoor work I notice some blown highlights.  I can see he probably didn’t like to get up early.  When I am forced by circumstance to work in those conditions I think of him and it makes me work harder…knowing that great work can still be made.

Five days until the opening of my show at the Easton Gallery of Photographic arts in Easton,, MD on July 6.  I am looking forward to meeting some new people and talking photography.
