Second Gun.

It’s a rare treat for me to watch someone else shoot pictures so when the opportunity arose, I took it. Carlos Funn (You may recall that there was a bit of a to-do over him last week on this blog, no?) sent me a quick note to see if I was free to come down and shoot with him last week. I was finishing up a shoot so I had time and I figured mostly there’d be a lot of schlepping lights and swapping lenses.

When Norma met us, she was a tanned six foot tall vision. An ex-volleyball player, she had a physique that made me think of Amazons. Which is interesting, ’cause she’s from Alaska. Which also begins with “A.” You might’ve noticed. But I digress.

Carlos had meant for me to be a “second shooter” for him that day, which is, in photographer-speak, the assistant. It would be my job to move lights and hold reflectors. I only did a little of that. Instead, Carlos set himself up to teach me a master-class on lighting for glamour photography, and I shot a lot of images that were in the vein, but none of them held up as well as these five. This progression is more about behind the scenes and less about doing the actual glam work that he did. Some of his shots can be found here and here.

And finally, here’s a shot of the master at work:
