My creative photography projects got off to a bang in 2014! The first for the new year is inspired by John Singer Sargent's 1884 oil painting, Portrait of Madame X. 2014 is the 130th anniversary of the original.

This project includes 12 images. If you can only see 8 at Flickr, then you need to set your safety level. If you aren't a Flickr user, then you can see the project in its entirety here instead.

From my first creative shoot for 2014. With art model Eugenya.

Plenty of DIY gear employed in this themed series: my IKEA hack backdrop support with $30 IKEA black curtains; foam-core barn-doors employed with Neewer $50 flashes for rim-light.

More shots (NSFW) on my Tumblr:

Another shot from #icestorm2013 -- taken the day after when the sun was shining down on a tree in my backyard and making it explode with brilliant points of light.
