The LensBaby Project – March 2013

Even I was surprised at the direction this month’s Lensbaby Project took me! This was a month with no theme, and I had no idea what to shoot. And then one day, I just saw something I had to shoot, and the Lensbaby seemed perfect. The grainy black and white is not really my style at all, but even as I was shooting in color, I just knew I would want to do exactly that with these.
My daughter is an artist. She was home from college on spring break, and working on a charcoal sketch of some of her friends. Her hands were blackened from the charcoal, the sketch was unfinished, and I just had to shoot it.
If you’d like to see more of her work, she has a gallery here.
After you’ve seen what I have done, please follow the circle through and visit Jess Curkovic.
