Halloween Countdown: Differently Demented by Birds Eye Studios
'My photography is my art, my passion and my life.'
Kenneth, Birds Eye Studios
Most of you know that I love Holiday themed images, Halloween being my favorite. Artists shooting holiday images in a way have to balance their art and the holiday without becoming corny or too kitschy. Some holiday images veer dangerously close to the cutsie, making a Hallmark moment rather than a memorable image.
The best holiday images are from photographers who keep the focus on what makes their work unique, adding elements of the theme to enhance an image, and not distract from it. Kenneth, from Birds Eye Studio does this superbly. The artist believes role that of an observer, to support the model to relax, be comfortable and enjoy the moment. Whether daring or conservative, Kenneth wants you to be you, making it his job to capture who that is.
As with many profession photographers, Kenneth spends a lot of time shooting portraits, sporting events, weddings and other special occasion's. If you spend any time on his website you will see that whether shooting nude models with razor blades or more traditional family portraits, his artists eye, seeking the unique and bringing out characteristics specific to the person of family in front of his lens.
No matter what he is shooting, Kenneth doesn't do boring. As a delicious counter balance to more tradition work, the Delaware artist puts a light, yet beautifully dark and demented touch on his creative work, hitting just the right bloody note with these Halloween images. Kenneth's featured model Christopher looks perfectly at home lounging in the pumpkin field, wearing a gas mask or as the object of carnage!
