We actually like shooting in challenging weather. Rain is particularly interesting. Depending on the type of light on the rainy day and the heaviness of the downpour, it can mute colors or enhance them. Recently we worked on a project on an intermittently rainy day. The extremes between raging thunderstorms and sun was amazing. But it gave us the opportunity to convey scenes in a more artistic way and still get the project done. In the end the sunset was spectacular, with enough clouds left in the sky to leave wonderful reflections and shapes in the waters below.
George and I love to photograph the bayous and swamps of South Louisiana. Images from our excursions have been included in many of our exhibitions and projects over the years. We’re always looking out for the moments that illustrate local personality. These photos just seem so typical, yet descriptive, of South Louisiana.
We have returned many times to Bayou Gauche, through the years. Images from it’s banks have found their way into our Phantom Winds project and our new Camo Trailer series. Despite changes in the Louisiana fishing industry, post Katrina, Bayou Gauche retains its peaceful, earthy and authentic lifestyle.
