Monument Valley, Utah. It's only 5 square miles but has entered the popular imagination as typical of the American West, used as it has been in countless westerns. This particular scene was actually shot from our hotel balcony and was unknown to us until dawn, when this photo was taken. It's almost like cheating, because I pointed the camera at it and took the picture and voila - a tableau of mesas, fog and lingering springtime snow. What a scene.
When the Mad Rollin Dolls wanted something gritty and industrial we decided to shoot some dramatic studio images and then photoshop them into one of my "urban exploration" backgrounds. I think that the effect comes off really well.
Shooting food can be a real terror and a real joy, all wrapped up in one. The folks at Brasserie V on Monroe Street in Madison certainly made it a joy for us today.
