I've been pretty busy since ending my previous blog Piewacket almost a year ago. Working with some amazing new clients, taking on teaching at NYFA and most exciting, a photography book project with Chronicle Books. Still, I miss having that little space on the inter-web that allowed me to share my world with others. So I am back with some truly fresh and (I hope) extra tasty pie! Fresh Pie Press will be kind of re-booted Piewacket with just a bit more emphasis on photography.
So it seemed fitting, as a first post to begin at the beginning. This photo is one of the first successfully "composed" photos I ever took. Taken when I was about 18, using a friend as my model, posing her against the back of my garage and all the right things alining just so resulting in something magical. Less than a year later I was in Art School and it was there I began experimenting with printing images using mount tissue. I placed it in the easel, exposing the image through it to the paper below. That was how this print was created, think of it as an "old school" instagram filter.
