Dahlquist with Apple
Late last year I had the distinct honor of photographing Roland Dahlquist, artist, illustrator and instructor at the Art Institute of Phoenix. For the first hour of the shoot, Aaron Pierson and I were shooting him high key against white and that was going well. Then Aaron handed me the camera and I turned out the lights, all except for one with a honeycomb screen. I shot a few but still felt we needed something else. So I grabbed a particularly large (and delicious, according to Dahlquist) apple I had on my desk and made these.
