Passions Rule

This is Keith Flemming, a graphic designer, a singer-songwriter, a poet, a photographer, an author, and a man on a pilgrimage. I stop for passions wherever I find them. I observe and study them. I learn from them, always. A life without passion is objectionable. You can quote me on that 🙂

Grace and Grit

Lately, I’m thinking less in terms of an image, of this or that picture, and instead visualizing a series of pictures, a kind of photo essay, whenever I take my camera out of my bag. The form introduces a new set of challenges. You have to see a scene, always dynamic, rapidly changing over time. It’s like cinema without the illusion of motion. Take a peek below, and let me know what you think.

Sisters

One sister is heading to Boston, the other to Pennsylvania. I’ve watched them grow up from little girls into young women, and now they are now fully embarked. Chase your dreams, ladies!

Bay Area Family Photography

Outdoor family photography in the Bay Area rarely disappoints. Grasses, oaks, cottonwoods, sycamores, creeks, ranch-style fences, and other rural vestiges. Among all that beauty, it’s incredibly gratifying to capture eyes, freckles, curls, and even the totally 100% unscripted kiss, I swear! Take a peek below.

Corporate headshots

Ambient light rules the world
That’s a plain fact
But sometimes you can’t utilize it
When that happens, strobes are a game changer
That, and reflectors, casting soft light
With each outing,
I develop more control over highlights, mid tones, and shadows
Take a peek at this recent set
Thank you!
