Light Table: Portrait of the Day
Michelle was one of the models who came through my studio in the early nineties that knew how to make a fashion picture look sexy, in an elegant and classic way. We made the portrait on the top of my studio on South 6th Street in Philly in the early nineties when I made the transition from corporate work to fashion and erotic photography. I was heavy into the use of T-Max film during those days and rated the already fast film even faster, which yielded a distinctive look to my selenium toned black and white prints. It was an intense period of contributing to various national and international print publications. This is one of my favorite photographs from the period.
