Photo Shoot

weather: blazing hot
mood: sweltering
music: Ben Heppner - Merci, Doux Crepuscule! (Berlioz)

My Favorite Mike has taken up photography and wanted some practice photographing human subjects. Me, being A Friend®, somehow got talked into being a guinea pig. So, today, we did a few snaps.

I warned him about being ugly enough to crack the camera lenses, but the lense only kept coming unfocussed... it didn't actually crack. Heh, I guess I'm not as ugly as I thought =)

It was fun. I think it would have been more fun if it weren't so sweltering hot. =P We didn't use a lot of props, a chair, a disco ball to create an effect and a light concentrater/softener thing (the fabric hoop thing). The rest were just me standing/sitting/kneeling against a plain white wall.

I doubled as both the model and assistant. I was holding the disco ball at one point to create a starry background - I don't know how that's going to turn out. I also used the fabric hoop thing to fan my face to get that Vogue wind-blown look. Of course, I had to do it myself, so the fabric hoop kept getting in the shot. =P

*laughing* My friend seiyafighter is going through Hallmark School of Photography in Massachusetts right now, and she's been using me and others of our friends as subjects for her portraits for her portfolio.

There was this one series of pictures that she took of my fiance' and I, both wearing medieval garb. I was up in the crook of a tree, and he (being insanely tall, 6'4") standing right by me leaning back against the branch. I had to lean forward a little off the branch, so that our faces were in the same plane of focus, and since I was wearing a decidedly low-cut and uplifting corset, my bosom was a big part of the shot as well. It was also bright bright pale white, and when she was trying to adjust the color levels in Photoshop, she had problems with those pictures, because the brightness of the sunlight off my bosom either made the entire shot way too faded, or if she turned the brightness down the rest of the shot was too dark, and all you could really see was this blazing pale bosom.

She ended up copying some folds of fabric of a friend's cloak from a completely different picture, and painting it on over my bosom, so that it was dark enough that she could adjust the levels to the proper brightness and not have my chest throwing it all off.

Yeah, it sure was hot here in Bellingham. I'm not sure about the Celcius conversion, but it it was about 85 yesterday and it was 100 in Kent, which is near Seattle.

Room temperature = 20°C = 68°F
85°F = 29.44°C
100°F = 37.78°C

Jeezus... body temperature is 36.5-37.0°C. =P

Hee hee. Duo xie! I think it's so lame how in America we don't use the standard measurements. Well, we call it the "standard" measurments but it's not. Grrr.
