More Frozen Flowers

This image was a complete surprise - the calla lily was recycled from the previous day’s work - I’d never had a flower survive a freezing, but when the previous day’s flowers melted in the sink, this lily was unchanged, which permitted me to freeze it again - yielding a completely different result!
This image was included in the 2010 exhibition `Frozen Light` which was displayed at ViewPoint Gallery, in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Ruth's First Session (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Digital original
Ruth came across my work online, and contacted me posing; she wished to mark a mile-stone in her life, and thought modeling would be the perfect way to celebrate. After meeting and going over my work, and her expectations, we scheduled a session!
Digital infrared original
Made at the very end of the session, this image was by far the strongest of the `body` images (as opposed to portraits). The soft afternoon light wrapped beautifully around her body, while the infrared camera elevated the skin tones just perfectly.
