Yesterday afternoon I watched the movie “The Science of Sleep” (which is such a great movie I might add), and was inspired by so many things in the movie. Immediately after watching it I got this image stuck in my head, and despite having other ideas for my self-portrait this week, this image just would not go away. It was the most vivid idea for a picture I have ever had, and the most persistent. And it turned out almost exactly how it was in my head.
And, I left the clouds hanging above my bed, it is wonderful.
This was a weekend full of firsts for me: first product shoot, first time in Bowling Green, KY, first engagement shoot, first time staying in a hotel alone, and first time sleeping in a king sized bed. It was crazy.
On Friday I shot some silk scarves and a shirt that are made by a woman here in KY. I wont be able to post the pictures from the product shoot because they were on Andrew Kung’s (the photographer I have done the Churchill shoots with, and am interning with this fall) camera. However, it was such a great learning experience, and I was pretty happy with the pictures I took (we will see how she liked them soon).
On Saturday I drove to Bowling Green with Drew, and shot my first engagement shoot with him. I will be posting those pictures soon. Drew got me a hotel room there, and I had a king sized bed all to my self. It was both awesome and crazy. I still slept curled up in a tiny little ball despite all the room in the bed, I was entertained by it, and felt kind of silly. When I was getting ready for bed I noticed how wonderful my white computer looked on the white sheets with the yellow cast from the only light on, and so I took this picture.
I have some more extremely big news tomorrow, but I want to post the picture with the news, and I need to get a few things worked out before then.
I cannot believe I am posting this. I hate my feet. They are gross. Especially right now due to my beautiful ankle (it is really becoming colorful). Plus it is my 60th shot, which is impressive for me, so I was hoping for something big and cool. But I had absolutely no other ideas for today and not a ton of time because I have so much homework. So, here you go, my ugly feet to look at.
