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
