Enjoying Charcoal

I am beginning to enjoy the process of using charcoal, which is very different from graphite. If you have been following me for a while, you may have noticed that I automatically hate anything I cannot master immediately. Then, after my little hissy, sometimes I start grudgingly using it and surprise, surprise! I actually will start learning something and start enjoying it. LOL! It can be exhausting being me…

This is actually the same model as a few days ago. Poor guy. He has to deal with me learning charcoal on his face. LOL! He was here for a couple of hours and he was so willing to do anything I asked him. He put his hair back and took it down several times, put his jacket on and took it off over and over, changed positions repeatedly, etc. I also have a favorite female model who loves to pose, also. Now, if I could only take good photos, that would help a lot. Quite a few of the photos were taken by candlelight, thus the quote below. I remember saying, during the photo shoot, “It is amazing how much light a candle will give when that is all you have.” However, I knew the day would come when I would not have an appropriate photo…

Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness. — Anne Frank
