Howl Portrait

Another photograph from the Crystal Hotel in downtown Portland.  I really love using this place for photo shoots.  It's kind of cheesey and over the top in some ways, but it works.

The most difficult aspect of this particular session was figuring out a way to incorporate the mural on the base board of the bed.  I was supposed to be a depiction of the book "Howl" by Allen Ginsberg.  Pretty cool in and of itself, but very difficult to incorporate naturally into a portrait.
