5-30-07

Day 292 of 365 days.

Four, count them, four days in a row without a studio shot. If that’s not some kind of record for me, I don’t know what is.

It came to my attention that, what with being wrapped up on the Tarot deck and all, I was basically shooting all chiaroscuro images for almost every shot lately, and I decided that not only did I need to do something with a little more color, but it would be nice to get outside and shoot with some natural light. So I met up with one of my models, Amaya, and she took me to a gorgeous mountain state park in West Virginia to do a photoshoot. As the trip took me pretty much all day, it was a pretty simple guess what the 365 shot of the day would be.

Silly note, I actually took two shots like this. After looking at the first one, I said "ugh, my hair is a mess" and took a second. However, when looking through the photos at home, I realized, "it was windy and I was 5000 feet up in the air. It’s ok if my hair is a little out of place." I even kinda like it. Hooray for anime hair.

    @lrayholly: yeah. It was. I took over 400 shots of her out there, so it might be a while, but I should have some of them up sooner or later.

    Anime Hair! What a great new phrase, I’m totally stealing it for those great morning moments. 🙂

    And congrats on getting your booty outside!

    PS> I love how she’s all "meow meow" and you’re all like "oh yeah that’s right". 🙂

    @kisluvkis: well, she’s a model. It’s her job to look sexy and stuff… And me, well… really, I just always look like that. I have one look. That is it. 🙂

    Glad you like the shot, and the hair. Thanks.

    Anime hair! It is totally anime hair, and it’s awesome.
    Okay, will you explain to me chiaroscuro? I’ve wikipedia’d it and looked it up, but I just don’t get it. Since you do it, please to be getting it into my thick skull?


    Seen in your 365 days set. (?)

    @sadandbeautiful (Sarah): yeah, the way I comb it straight down all the time, I forget how long it is. Thanks.

    @lalalaa Dolce Vita: sure… basically it just means low key images with a lot of heavy use of black shadows. You know, like most of my stuff.

    @pi c’s: I did. It was beautiful. I want to go back sometime just to go camping. I also shot her for the tarot deck yesteday. At this very moment I am going through photos from both shoots while she’s sleeping on the couch. Hopefully I’ll have some stuff up in the next couple days or so.
