Day 97 of 365 days.

Another day where I didn’t really have a strong idea in mind and decided to just go down to the studio and see what struck me. I’m actually beginning to kind of like those kinds of shots. I go downstairs and look around and see if I get any bolts of inspiration and then I just work with it. Its a great creative exercise, but I worry about what will happen if I ever don’t come up with something. In this case, I knew the shot as soon as I saw my mini disco ball sitting in the corner. I actually think its a cool prop and now I want to do like a whole disco inspired shoot. I need more models and more free time. Damn job taking up all my time I could be being creative. *sigh*

    @Qathi: I looked and didn’t see it. Did you change your mind?

    @Tory: Thank you. I actually have all of that, but I didn’t wear them for this photo.

    I thought that was a microphone…..to be serenaded by Mav, what an honor! Of course, which Mav would you get, the Flavor Flav Mav or the Chuck D Mav????
    I would love to be included in your disco shoot!!! Sounds like the perfect venue for all of my wonderful clothes!

    I also love the spontaneous ideas…they often work out best!
    This is a very cool shot…the focus really shifts back and forth between your fingers/disco ball and your eye in the background.
    You do look like a sorcerer here.
    Grant me a wish?

    thanx everyone.

    @wim: I actually meant to mention that it reminded me of a David Copperfield special, but I forgot.

    @shan: Well you actually have to come over for a shoot at some point. 😛 Whenever you want. And I need a bigger disco ball.

    @sarah: sure. What’s the wish? Don’t I get rubbed three times? Err… umm… yeah…

    Don’t worry, you’re much cooler than Justin…..and I do have to do a shoot, but the only problem is that I can’t get too drunk and then have to drive all the way back down here! I might have to drag my designated driver along with me, Parker! LOL!

    very cool shot mav! now, i want you to do this same shot when you don’t comb your hair back…give us the fro, through some crazy jacket on (with some color in it preferably) and maybe some strobes to set off the disco ball… there’s some ideas for you 😀

    i find myself searching in strange places now for inspirations too…it’s actually a great way to stay creative even if it’s not the "creative" style that you seek!
