"Carpe Noctem": Creative Portrait Photography

 

These photographs are from a conceptual portrait photoshoot with a New York City fine-art and tattoo artist Yevgeniya Rain. Rain told me her motto is "Carpe Noctem", or "seize the night." We often find ourselves in the dark, in our personal lives, in our artistic lives, and in our relationships. It is important to take control of the darkness, to light your way through. These were the motifs for this photoshoot. The lantern light, shifting colors, the coming of dawn, and painterly rendering of the photographs were purposefully chosen to reflect Rain's motto as well as my interpretation of it.
