Into the Light (…he has to step into the light and be seen, be heard and most of all be felt.)

Two element composite with model Ryan McNally.

It has been awhile since my last blog post and if my blog falls silent it usually means “busy” as in too busy to sit and type out a few sentences and talk about a photo. So yes I have been busy to the 10x and then some. Mostly with personal life stuff like “moving” from one apartment to another. But today I had time to sit and edit a photo from the shoot I had done with Ryan McNally a few weeks back. As I edit these images of Ryan I want more and I think of more… more stuff that we can do at the next shoot. Ryan is new so we have to work him up to the good stuff. I would like to do a series of action shots with Ryan. So we’ll just have to wait and see what the next shoot brings.

The feeling or inspiration that went into this composite was “the light.” Any gladiator or warrior has to step out into the light of battle. The warrior can hide and be stealth like all he wants. He can even keep his back to the light of battle. But at some point to advance the battle and turn the tide to his favor he has to step into the light and be seen, be heard and most of all be felt. He has to have game on and he has to have the game face. Be it a fighter pilot, a boxer, a cyclist, base jumper or soccer player… when he steps into the light of battle is when he must show his mettle. Game on!
