Day 262 of 365 days. So I got the letter I had been dreading today. I’ve spent the last couple months interviewing over and over again with one company. Actually, I’ve interviewed with several companies for the last couple months, but I kept getting called back to one. They told me in no uncertain terms…

Day 261 of 365 days. Oh my aching feets. I need to get new tennis shoes. Mine are several years old and they just don’t provide the support I need anymore. Played doubles tennis today with Steph against Max and Geoff. It was the first time that we’d played all year, but its nice to…

Day 260 of 365 days. From sinful gothic glamour to cute family photos. Oh what a difference a day makes. My former roommates, Sam and Karen wanted me to take a family portrait for them today, so they came over to sit in the studio with their two kids. Sadly I couldn’t get Ted to…

XVIII – The Moon

XVIII - The Moon

The fourth completed card in my tarot card series.

Mallory as the Moon. I had originally envisioned this as a card where she was standing and looking at the moon, but as we were shooting yesterday, she got tired of standing and wanted to shoot some sitting down. I really loved her head placement in this one and the arch of her back. I think the facial expression is perfect for what I wanted to convey.

The biggest thing I am unsure of is the placement of the moon. When I took the pic of the moon last week, I really had envisioned her looking at it, not away, but I do feel as though it kind of works how it is. Not positive though.

Jack of Swords

Jack of Swords

The third completed card in my tarot card series.

Shiima as the Jack of Swords. Commonly called a knight. I decided to rename them to Jacks for the same reason they call them Jacks instead of Knaves on the modern playing card deck. Namely, that K is the same letter for King. I’m still not positive on that. But its growing on me. I’m also of still of the opinion that the lens flare is a bit cheesy, but I think it adds something to the effect. Opinions?

Red Light District: Text Sex

Red Light District: Text Sex

More pictures from yesterday’s photoshoot.

Turnabout being fair play, after Shiima’s "going down" picture, I decided we should do a reverse one. So we changed it around to get this second "red light district" shot. Shiima of course had to go with his look of total indifference, so we decided to add the cell phone so it gives the impression that he couldn’t care less about being moments from getting a blow job. Such a rock star.

I also added some grain in post to give it an even cheaper and seedier look. I really like this one for the back alley, cheap motel, sluttly, prostitution feel to it.

Did a photoshoot with Shiima and Mallory today. These are the first three shots I finished from it. More to come, including two new tarot cards. Would love to hear people’s thoughts.

Shiima is a wrestling friend of mine. My former tag team partner, in fact, until he decided he wanted to be a good guy and I had to turn on him. Shame about that. Still he’s fun to hang out with, and the pics turned out good.

An idea Shiima originally had based on some other picture he’d seen was just to have a leg draped over his shoulder and kind of the implication of oral sex. I modified the poses a bit and kind of got Mallory more into the shot as well. One of the racier things that I’ve shot, at least recently, but I think it turned out pretty well.

Mallory is a friend of Shiima’s and an asipring makeup artist. She did both her and Shiima’s makeup for this shoot, which I think turned out well. She’s also really cute. Yay for really cute.
