NYC Work

I’ve been working on a special project these last few days. Can’t tell you about it yet as it’s in the works, but as soon as it’s ready to start you will be in the know. I can tell you that I am very excited about it.

Now to my blog and my New York work, “Jane Doe” accepted my invitation to work with me. As we had never worked together we started working slow and easy. Then she put on that gorgeous necklaces, I suggested that it would look so cool topless. I though that had broken the ice, I suggested nude. We’d been working with her nude for about 10 minutes, and she let out a groan…, “I told myself no more nudes, and here I am” she said. But we’re getting some really pretty stuff I said, and showed her some of the Polaroids I’d shot. We worked for about half an hour more, can’t remember if we had wine, but I walked her to the corner where she got a cab for home. All was well I figured.

A few days later after I had film back, I called her and tried to setup a meeting. She was really bummed that she’d gotten nude, no amount of telling her what lovely stuff we had gotten. I could change her mind, she didn’t want to see what we had done. If any of you can remember Patty Hearst back in the 80’s, there is the Stockholm syndrome where a captive begins to relate to their captors. Call it buyer remorse, I’ve had a few women who enjoyed the shoot, but after when their loved ones hear about what we/they did express remorse. And remember I have high ethical standards…, I have never taken advantage of my models. But were do you draw that line of being complementary about the pose, or how they look. I feel that I must be supportive in the work I do, and that they willing do with me.

I share the work now as an example of my lighting skills I once had. I share this work of mine because I think it is a lovely example of a healthy young woman in her prime of life. It is not for sale at any price. I was practicing the lighting skills I had learned from other photographers, in the studio of a master of lighting. My time in NYC was well spent aside from my lifestyle. I learned from so of the best the craft of photography and lighting. It served me well the learning I did, the craftsmanship I was able to practice. But with all skills are learned, those skills must be practiced and perfected. After my stroke those skills had to take a backseat to learning to live life as I had. Its been a long and bumpy road, one filled with small success that build into larger ones.

Life does have a way of changing the building blocks of that life. No always seen as a success, but building into one long term. Remember that life is what happens to you while you are planning for your future!
