3-26-14 How To Make A Monster

Now that I have your attention…Some of you may have noticed that I tried a little experiment yesterday. I did not title my post. I only gave it a date. Statistically speaking, it made absolutely no difference to reader visits that I can see. Of the past 6 Tuesdays, yesterday is number 4. Just missed the bronze medal.  I had not looked at all the lovely stats that WP provides for months. Why I suddenly got curious, I can’t say.  I wish I had exciting information to impart but I don’t.

We were playing around in the studio again the other day. Our model was Cyrus, a young man who is looking to freshen up his book and work on his performance skills. I have not had time to do much yet but here are a few shots from the session.







The last two are to show what you can do in Lightroom with only a very few clicks and slider changes. First, a smoldering, extremely good-looking young man…





I am submitting a few pieces to a juried call for monsters. I think this works. I am going to see if Cyrus will permit me to use it that way. Not a legal issue just common courtesy. So, does this say “monster” to you?


I was happy that several people noticed that I did not have an update on Andra‘s walk to Nashville in support of her book, “To Live Forever An Afterlife Journey Of Meriwether Lewis” She is over 75% of the way through her 444 mile walk!

  1. He’s a looker! Quite the jawline! Beautiful gallery although the last is quite spooky! I have never ever looked at my stats. I do this for me. I have missed your posts. Working constantly! Nice work!

    • I know you are in the midst of a great adventure and you impress me deeply with your book and your walk and I am glad to know you so…I will forgive you for thinking I used some sort of filter. 🙂
