Picture Play

I’ve spent a lot of time studying new ideas and techniques during this unscheduled “vacation,” no sense in wasting time, after all. And never fear, I’ve worked in plenty of naps as well. But, every now and then I have to take a little time to keep current on some core abilities, like playing with pictures. So for this I took two existing shots of Kim that I had already combined into one shot in the past, and stripped out the original backdrop and added a shot from a large collection I picked up for future green screen work.

Snippet: Aesthetic

Her: “What does it mean when a photographer turns you down and he says you don’t match the aesthetic that he’s looking for.”
Me: “It means he wants to photograph what he considers “babes,” either for a chance to hang around them, to have pictures of his with what he considers “sexy” women to make himself look good, or he’s going to try and talk models out of their clothes. Or, he could just be a conceited jerk. Lots of possibilities in that silly statement. My take, you’re better off looking for a professional photographer.”

Photography Hiatus

I’ve heard from friends that some photographers are still out there working. Not us! Your health (and ours, quite frankly) means it’s not worth the risk. That being said, we’re spending time maintaining our gear and rounding up new goodies, with delivery speed being a slow crawl. Stay safe y’all!
