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 🙂

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!

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!

Faces

In between client projects, I’m always chasing light
Especially when it radiates from people, their faces, freckles, and eyes

One of my heartbeats, my daughter

James, 2021

He’s an almost college graduate
An aspiring business pro with big dreams
He’s embarked but not quite
You get the picture
Lots of fun working with James in the field
He was willing to chase light and explore scenes
