well after having a bad family portrait day the other weekend i tried to arrange a session with another flaky no-show model, who didn’t show, due to illness and doctors advice, she didn’t know she was sick with a fever. where do they come from?
i had set up some strobes in my studio in anticipation for her session but shadow my only other model doesn’t like to have her picture taken. but my honey came into the city to go to Photo Salon last night and volunteered to sit for me. i shot two cards and showed her how to use the Sekonic 508 light meter. i think we got some nice shots from the session.
this one below is a favorite from the first of the session. i don’t think anyone of us, i know i don’t have, the model feel, if there is such a thing. it’s a pretty special talent to go through actions that emote a special feeling, unless you’re part of and aware of the moment it’s pretty hard to appreciate but the picture says everything.
this one just captures the one i love, unadorned except for the heart i gave her for christmas and red lipstick.
she has changed my life. honey said you get what you pay for even without a powerball payout i am rich.
