All work and no play make Christa a dull girl…
All spreadsheets, all day make Christa go crazy!
In honor of Jersey Shore coming back to televison, I give you my rendition of the DUCK LIPS
They say imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Sometimes I spend hours on the iwebs for inspiration or just history of great photographers and where they’ve come from, also where we’re going.
I spotted this vintage print and knew I wanted to attempt at reproducing it. I didn’t realize how hard it would be…
Finding mirrors, an area to setup, and trying to look over a massive camera setup (my 50d is like 5 times bigger than old film cameras) were just a few barriers. So today, was my first attempt. I don’t know if I’ll try again, maybe if the moment is right and I can find the perfect location.
For now, I’m happy that I at least tried.
I didn’t mean to take this photo tonight. It was kind of a happy accident. I have gobs and gobs of other photos that are OK, but I really liked this one. I took it when I was trying to steady the camera and set the focus. Man I just love when photos sort of create themselves… It’s like it was meant to be.
