Or, Finding a good excuse to show off my latest work.
I bought some new lighting equipment several months ago.
I got 3 new strobe heads, two new soft boxes, and light stands. Other than the initial post-UPS delivery inspection, I haven’t done a thing with any of it.
Part of the
excuse reason is a change of domiciles after the arrival of the equipment, which entailed weeks of packing, planning, loading, hauling, unpacking etc. Not to mention the earning a living thing.
Enough is enough.
I would also like to interject at this point that I have been exceedingly antsy to create some ART UP IN HERE. In particular, I would like to co-create some art with other people.
Yep. I would like to lure some person or persons to sit down in front of my camera lens and embody some strangeness for me.
Model Mayhem Frustration
I could try to connect with potential models through Model Mayhem. I have certainly done that successfully in the past.
However, most of the ‘models’ on Model Mayhem are looking to get into fashion and glamor work. They have
delusions aspirations of becoming the next tall-skinny-girl-who-gets-$10K-just-to-show-up super model. They are also very concerned with updating their ‘port’ which, despite its nautical sound, has nothing to do with maritime adventures.
Be like water.
Sometimes you have to take the path of least resistance.
Last night in a fit of utter physical BOREDOM and stupefaction, I decided to ‘play’ in my art room. Cranked the music and set about setting up my new lights….or at least one of them.
If there was no person to photograph, I would at least photograph…….something. Damn it. Janet.
Going back into the closet.
