DescriptionWhile stationed at Quantico, Virginia, I took off one Sunday to look for a church. About two hours later, missing church, I came across a life size statue of Jesus on the cross just off the highway. It was high noon, same time that he died, a terrible time to take photos. I did not want to pass this chance to grab a shot, so I placed my self as if I was a witness to this event. I did not want to see anything modern. Over a year later, with the concept I had at the time I took the image, I worked the image in Photoshop to capture the moment of Jesus' death. It's special to me, I hope you like it also.Shot with Mamiya 645, 125 at F11.
Larry Costales, Lake Elsinore Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement A self taught photographer, I do actor head shots and portraits for money and fine art images for myself and love of the art. Due to my military duty that took me away from home on five year long tours, after 20 years I am still an undiscovered actor. No regrets, I even served one year in Kuwait as a contractor because I still felt a need to support our troops. I specialize in color and texture and while I was in Kuwait I expanded my art to include some people. I always try to capture some sort of mood or emotion in my images that I hope you notice and are effected by. A few of my images are first place award winners, others have yet to be submitted for competition. Please leave a comment and let me know what images you liked. If your a LA Dodger fan I can be seen on You Tube- 2007 commercials. Look for "Miracle Toast".
