Back in March, I first featured the work of Georgia photographer Jesse from JDT Photography. (The Spring Suspension) Although on the late March day it was officially spring, as I was piecing together the feature, the snow and wind was whipping at my windows as a late season snow storm hammered down any signs of spring that dared to rise from the ground.
Today, as May's arrival is beautifully welcomed, I think... spring has finally officially arrived. Although the air still hovers around the freezing mark at night, tulips have risen and humans are venturing into their yards and gardens to begin the ritual or summer preparation. It seems appropriate then, given I featured Jesse's exterior images to help me deal with the winter, we know look inside at some of Jesse's studio work.
Living in Georgia, Jesse deals with the weather in different ways than those of us in the north. Jesse says that finding somewhere beautiful to shoot outside is rarely a problem, regardless of what the calendar says. What I love about Jesse's images is the thread of calmness that run through his work both outside and within studio.
Next four images, Blakely
There is a quietness when your outside, deep in the woods, especially when you're alone. That same feeling penetrates internally within his studio shots, especially in the images below, as well as and image I chose for pic of the day. Some images scream for the viewers attention, but Jesse's quietly whisper instead. The call is not as noisy, but has equal weight and force.
