Day 1174 of 365 4 lyf. I’ve been almost sorta creative like 4 days in a row now. These days that counts as a record. I’m sure tomorrow I’ll be dogging it. Actually, this isn’t the most creative shot ever. I’ve returned to what I was trying a couple days ago. When you lack an…

Newt – Good and Evil

Newt - Good and Evil

Had some free time tonight so thought I’d edit one of Newt’s photos. The concept for the fallen angel shoot was actually her idea. We actually have a whole set that we shot which I’m going to try to publish at Zivity. The problem is I really need to get around to finishing editing them all. But I like the pics from the shoot a lot, so hopefully I’ll get to them sooner rather than later.

Day 813 of 365 Again. Happy Halloween! And now you know what my secret costume was that I was working on these past couple weeks. As per tradition, Iw ear multiple costumes to my parties. This time I thought it’d be cool to wear three different versions of the same costume. Sure, I could have…

Day 790 of 365 Again. Really, I’m still bogged down with everything, but I just didn’t feel like taking another boring shot in front of the black backdrop. So I thought to myself, "Self, how can you take an interesting shot in front of the black backdrop?" I couldn’t come up with anything, and it…

Day 647 of 365 More.

Wow…

So, I say all the time that I never expected 365 to really take off the way it did. I would really have been happy if there were 20 people in the group on my first day, but now every time I look at the stats and see it’s over 8500 people all over the world, I am astounded.

The group has gotten so big and so amazing that a month ago, my mother decided to organize the members to pay tribute to me and my awesomeness.

Wow.

So I kind of expect my mother and Steph to do stuff like this, because for some crazy reason, they claim to actually love me. I even expect it of Jameel since he’s spent the better part of his adult life, laying in bed at night and dreaming that he might one day be the Maverick. I’m happy they participated, but its no surprise.

The real surprise is the other 130-odd people who have also copycatted one of my photos in the last 24 hours.

I’m sorry I can’t go through and comment on each and every one of you (just flipping through the pool and working on this pic ate up my whole night and kept me from working on the next episode of Cosmic Hellcats which I had planned on working on tonight (and if you aren’t reading my webcomic, shame on you. Go check it out now! End cheap plug…), but let me just say that viewing the whole thing really made my day. So thank you to all who participated.

When I first heard about this, my immediate thought was "hmm, I wonder how many catholic school girl pics there are going to be today?" I kinda guessed that there might be one from like_shipwrecks and I was was so sure that PhotoKat would do one, that I would have bet my life on it. But the entries from er3465, evaxebra and gaymay were nice surprises. And it was great going through the pool and seeing other people’s takes on all my other ideas.

So thank you to everyone who participated and feel free to make it a yearly occurrence. Maybe next year we’ll all get off work. 🙂

Angels

Had a shoot with both Amaya and Sarah yesterday. At first we didn’t have any real ideas, and frankly I have been burnt out, so we started out with a basic concept. Naughty and Nice clones. I was kind of inspired by the 80s B-movie "Angel" where this 15-year old girl is a sweet innocent high-school student by day and a nasty skanky prostiture/vigilante crime fighter at night.

They probably would have looked better if I had done it with scenery instead of just on a black backdrop. Still, its kinda neat showing how verstaile both of the girls are.

Day 502 of 365 More. One of the things I always wanted to use 365 for was experimenting. Sometimes I come up with little camera tricks that I don’t really want to bother with fiddling with during an actual shoot, so why not try them on myself. Only I haven’t been doing them much lately,…
