A Virtual Live Portrait Session
For these sessions, while my studio is temporarily closed due to the pandemic, I’m set up in my little (messy) home office. These are live photo shoots where I create real sets (like a still life). I project people into them. I direct people in terms of styling, lighting, and posing, and I photograph the scene with my camera to create these portraits.
Gabriela is an artist and musician living in Providence, Rhode Island. She’s married to my cousin, Bill, and together they have a band called Silverteeth.
Bill and I come from an artistic family. Our grandmother, Dorothy Bartholomew, was an artist, so I included her work in the set I made for Gabriela’s portraits. The block print beside Gabriela is a work my grandmother titled “Patroness of Musicians.”
