lol my girlfriend lol
On note of Chris and Jordyn, these two make one of the best couples I’ve ever seen. Never before in my life could I have imagined scheduling a session with two nude people at one time - especially two who were intimately connected. Special thanks go to them for being both fun AND professional.
Also, additional thanks go to them for being willing to try a crazy couple’s pose I was inspired by, but that, my Tumblr followers, is for another day.
MOAR OF MY LOVELY WOMAN AND I,LOL.
My ninth model, Chris, also deserves special thanks. This man is probably one of the goofiest guys I have ever met, but he has always been pretty patient and hard-working when it comes to doing a shoot.
Thank you, Chris (and Jordyn!), for putting up with all of the technical issues that I (and other 757 Electronica members) have had in the past, and for sticking around for some amazing final products.
HELPING A BUDDY OUT FOR A PROJECT, LOL NO MAKE UP ;0
For my eighth model, I was back with working studio lights, though what I was using was different from that of the first five shoots. Ms. Jordyn, from my experiences with her, gets my vote for the “Most Willing to Make the Best Photo” model. Ever.
Here are just two amazing experiences about Jordyn:
- In a previous shoot she and I were involved in, Jordyn was one of very few people willing to hang upside-down from a ceiling by her ankles. I ended up doing the same, and can vouch for her that such a thing is not the most pleasant, and she deserves great credit for doing so.
- For this shoot, when I asked (as I did of all other models) to wear little to no makeup, she asked if she should take off her black-tipped fingernails. I told her it wasn’t necessary, but I still see she showed without them.
In short, Jordyn has always been willing to do whatever seems necessary (whether to her and/or to the artist) to make the best possible image. Her attention to detail is extraordinary, and I will always think of her as nothing short of the ultimate trooper.
I GET TO WAKE UP TO THIS FACE HALF OF THE WEEK, I WISH I WAS EVERY DAY.
Because I posted the previous video - and realized that I was actually able to - I decided to post this video as well. Though it’s a bit older, I photographed a huge percentage of this and am happy to know I helped create it.
This project is one that was incredibly emotionally fatiguing. In the past, I had worked with Gutter Gloss on a stop motion video, which I shot about 60% or more of and was in a small section of. For this video, I shot very little of it (and even that was more video than stop motion photography), but I spent a lot of time during the shooting process and dove into my emotions to get myself to cry for the video. This is something I feel I can be pretty darn proud of.
