On the Couch.

She kinda looks like that’s where you’d sleep ’cause clearly you’ve crossed her.

But really, what Amber was doing was looking a little angry for Jim. If the owner of that couch had returned to her house to see we’d put it outside, there’s a distinct possibility that we’d have gotten that look, too. But like I said, this one’s fabricated. Jim was making real photographs (with his film camera) and I was loitering in the wings, snapping with my then new Pentax. I didn’t know at the time that I could shoot RAW to have more information to work with in post so this only exists as a high res jpeg.

I was looking through some of the old images in my Flickr stream and found this image, so I found the original jpeg on my hard drive and had another crack at it. I cropped it to a square and changed the levels a bit. I like it better this way; it’s warmer.

Anyway, it’s a good Friday piece. Have a good weekend. Hopefully I’ll have some new stuff to share on Monday.

The Service Was Bad.

It took about an hour of poring over these slides to figure out where I went wrong. The idea is pretty well in place, but the problems are that (a) I haven’t got a fisheye lens, which is SO what this needs and (2) the lighting’s harsher than I’d hoped.

The original idea was to have a dour, older woman sitting in a field being attended to by a younger, impertinent server. The woman would have all of her attention and bad attitude focused at the lens (at the viewer) and the waitron (a real word, I’d point out) would be surly. The tea would be overpoured and overflowing and the woman would have no clue.

The sun refused to stay behind the clouds — it was behind them right as we started and went back just as we finished — so we were hot as well as lit wrong. The girls I got weren’t old enough to be, y’know, old. This is a sketch. Again. *sigh*
