Waiting at the Gate

I have only done specif­i­cal­ly creepy shots for Hal­loween a small num­ber of times. I’m not good with the dead­lines the sur­round hol­i­day-themed pho­tog­ra­phy because I can’t get in the mood until we’re right up on the hol­i­day and then there’s no way in hell I’m going to be able to edit in time for the pho­tos not to be all sad and pathet­ic and late, so often it just doesn’t hap­pen. But every so often, I get lucky. This year, the luck, dammit!

The first voy­age out­side of the stu­dio with the infa­mous cir­cle, and my first meet & greet in over 9 years. I wasn’t sure how this was going to go, but I end­ed up com­ing away with at least one shot that I real­ly dug.

This is one of my absolute favorite cre­ations with one of my absolute favorite mod­els. It’s hard to go wrong with her… and, you know, 100 hours of Pho­to­shop.

On my 31st birth­day my hus­band and daugh­ter took me to the aquar­i­um and I took some pic­tures. I love the idea of under­wa­ter pho­tog­ra­phy, the exe­cu­tion of it how­ev­er can be some­what exac­er­bat­ing… espe­cial­ly when you’re con­tend­ing with crowds, tanks, dirty glass and you know… your chil­dren. But hey, look at the fishies!

What the hell was I doing at the bar inside of a VFW in Racine, Wis­con­sin? That’s a very good ques­tion. This pho­to, while not a mod­el, is prob­a­bly one of my favorites from this shoot. It might even be one of my favorites from the year. It’s def­i­nite­ly one of my favorite pho­tos that I have ever tak­en that doesn’t have a per­son in it. This sil­ver dog sits on the bar of the Racine VFW.

The peo­ple who glad­ly cov­er them­selves in flour and roll around on your cold stu­dio floor for the ben­e­fit of your ridicu­lous vision are the best kind of peo­ple to have as mod­els and as friends.
