(from an artist’s studio in Asheville, NC)
I am pondering the connection between drawing portraits and taking portraits. Light source is everything in both processes. That may seem simple or obvious, but to me, it is a connection that is driving the way I LOOK AT everything right now. I notice shadows I didn’t see before. A light source in a particular place, at a particular time of day, will inspire me to grab my camera and shoot…just to take advantage of that moment of light. As I wandered through a few artist’s studios in Asheville a few weeks ago, I fell in love with this portrait wall. These portraits were drawn of local homeless people. The artist is going to sell them to raise money for the local shelter. I was drawn to the point of view of each page. The way the light had to be hitting the subject. I thought they were just beautiful.Learn More
