The Gallery Bill Wadman

"Rorschach Experiment"- food coloring, water, strobe

Introducing Bill Wadman, an accomplished portrait photographer who is always experimenting with his camera... and loves to share what he learns on his informative blog, On Taking Pictures. That's where I found these posted with the invitation: "Tell me what you see in them. It's a little test."

In 2007 Wadman set out to photograph one portrait a day for the entire year -- a project that captured subjects out in their world,

Regan, from the 365 Portraits Series well as inside his studio -- with spectacular results you can see at 365 Portraits. Prints from this series are available in editions of 5 for $400.



Ever think of commissioning a portrait? They aren't just for "bio photos" on your company website or conference programs... these can be a fabulous work of art, in your own home... of you/your family/someone you adore... Try it! Wadman works within many formats, films and effects.


And here are the results of another experiment... approximating the tones of the master photographer Edward Steichen.
