This is the kind of stuff I get really excited about. Creating interesting effects without photoshop. Mixing light sources. Using them to simultaneously freeze the subject and paint with the light. I love it. Maddy was a great sport and
Tl:dr – Vaginas, saran wrap, ropes, cigarettes and tattoos. Whenever I need a swift kick in my ego’s ass I just start looking through old shoots from 5 or 6 years ago and it takes me down a peg. But
Another set from my session with Morgan and Kiwi. We did a little experimenting with lighting on the blue wall, this time adding green gels to the strobes in the back. I love the effect personally. Not to mention Morgan
I had the opportunity to work with a couple new models and I was absolutely blown away by them. The energy was great and we all clicked so well. They were so deep into it at one point that even
I decided to get another piece of pegboard and do some experimenting since I hadn’t worked with it in quite a while. The results were a little different than I expected but very very interesting, and it definitely gave me
Sinthia was pretty awesome to work with, I must say. Very comfortable with her body, confident and fun to be around. We were able to get a couple sets in with the time we had. Spent most of it on

Another fantastic workshop in the bag. Thank you to everyone who participated, especially Bettye and Roxy who completely kicked ass. More images to come from all the participants as they come in. I know we got some really great stuff.
Finally got to try out my new camera and lens a bit and wanted to share my results and thoughts for those who love this kind of stuff. My Canon T3 with the Canon 50mm f1.4 which has been my
Another fantastic workshop on the books. Had a lot of fun with these guys and Bettye did an incredible job. Played with water and glass and even spent some time in the padded room. Just to regain our sanity. I

The vaginas are coming along nicely. My collection keeps growing steadily and I’m almost ready to start choosing which pieces I’ll be building for the show. If you didn’t catch my earlier post, Breast Art – Abstract Pieces, I’ve been
I know that I’m usually on to a really good idea when I get that giddy feeling inside. That’s how I feel about these new pieces I’ve been working on. These are some of the mock ups I’ve put together
Moving to a new studio has been something in the back of my mind for a while now, but I’ve been putting it off for a number of reasons. Mainly the fact that I’ve put so much time and energy
I feel like this time around with the fog and track lights was particularly awesome with much more satisfying results. I love the color, the texture, and with the addition of Alicia’s raw sensuality it all came together very nicely.
This is a continuation of an earlier post about experimenting with fog and track lighting (http://stevegracy.com/new-lighting-ideas/) The track lights were a found treasure and with some creative engineering I managed to set them up from floor to ceiling. Then I
I’m completely mesmerized by these images. The more I look at them the more I see. The shapes of the shadows and the details hidden inside the textures they play with my mind. I hope you enjoy them as much as I
Here’s a quick pic of the setup I’m working on. I’m excited to play around with some fog and track lighting and see what I can come up with. I’ve always wanted to set up something like this. I’m sure
Got some really interesting results with shooting light through a pegboard. I set one up permanently in the studio and I plan on getting a lot of use out of it. I love the patterns it makes on the wall.
Experimented with attaching ribbon to the ceiling and just capturing the play of light through them against her curves. I found the characteristics of her body very interesting and beautiful, even in what might be considered unflattering poses. I’m
