Ethan’s Army – Single

Ethan Wudyka, 8, receives a kiss from his Grandma, Debbie  LeVasseur as he watches the movie, Flushed Away, and she whispers to him, "Did you remember or did you forget?" Ethan was silent so she continued, "You are the bravest boy I have ever met," said LeVasseur with tears in her eyes. Ethan shakes his head and says, "yes." Before walking away LeVasseur said, "Don't you forget you are the bravest little boy." Ethan was diagnosed with a very rare incurable form of brain cancer, only 14 kids have ever been diagnosed with it.

“Still” Life

Still life 1

I photographed Sammy with the Dexter poster in mind. I know that this does not fall under the typical still life images that we see when we google “still life” but I decided to just go with my gut. In the studio I had Sammy lay down on plastic and pull plastic wrap over her face. It is a very morbid photograph, symbolizing death or murder. I had one light sitting on a fan so it would be slightly elevated off to the upper left corner of the frame. The fill light has a large soft box that is over head to the right of the frame. I was on a ladder to the left of Sammy, shooting with a 70-200mm. dexter_062913_1600 o-DEXTER-SEASON-8-facebookScreen Shot 2014-11-09 at 9.25.32 PM20141109_211310-1
