C. Spencer Yeh recently stopped by the Bemis Center to perform at their Live @ LOW END performance series. Here’s some photos.
Recently Lauren Simpson and Annie Schenzel performed as part of KANEKO’s DUO performance series. Shooting dance is always a challenge, but when you turn the lights down low and add in a projector as the main light source it starts to get really tricky, but challenges are part of what keeps this job interesting. Here’s a few favorites from the event.
The lovely folks asked me to shoot some quick headshots for their dance collective recently. They wanted the simple all white look, but I also convinced them to give the dark look a shot. All in we got everyone done in about 2 hours, here’s a few of my favorites.
I talked my girlfriend into coming with me to be my assistant on a shoot recently for Girls Inc and took the opportunity to make a light test into a new headshot for her.
Angélica Negrón recently performed at Bemis Center’s LIVE @ LOW END performance series. Angélica somehow managed to rig up some fruits and veggies as well as a house plant to perform electronic music, which made for a real wild performance.
The Bemis Center hosted it’s regular “Meet and Eat” event where you get a chance to share a meal with the current group of Bemis Resident’s and hear a little bit about what they’ll be making while at the Bemis Center. If you’re not familiar, the Bemis Center hosts “Residents” for a few weeks in converted studios/apartments and provides the residents access to all kinds of materials and tools as well as covers their living expenses for a few weeks so they can focus 100% on their art. It’s a really neat program, and very worth checking out their Open Studios event that occurs at the end of their residency run, giving you a chance to see the artworks created and chat with the artists in a casual environment.
Had some fun with my friend Maia, she recently did her hair to match her favorite food, so we had to a quick portrait shoot combining the two.
