Danny's Photoshoot Meme [Dec. 13th, 2009|01:12 pm]
[Tags|, , , ]
[mood |creativecreative]

Write to me if you'd like to know how I would like to photograph you. Don't tell me how you'd like to be photographed, it's my job to come up with something for you.

All your comments will be screened, so people will only see my replies to you. I will unscreen your original request only if you ask me to after I have replied.

Disclaimer time - I may need you to point me towards a recent photo of yourself since my memory for people's faces/bodies is often crap. Be warned, you may find the way I'd like to photograph you ridiculous, insulting, boring, obvious, exploitative, confronting, confusing, completely off the mark of how you see yourself, or completely uncreative. Worse still, I may not be able to think of anything for you. If I can't think of anything for you though, it probably means I just need to chat with you more, to spark some ideas.

Either that you or have no discernable personality.

Yes, I am mean. Tough it out, you bastards!

It's interesting. In some ways my first response would be I really need to have a long, sit down chat with you at a con, as I've intended to do for ages.

But then I immediately had a fully formed image pop into my head.

A bathroom mirror frosted over with condensation. The shot is from close behind you, so the back of your head is of out of focus. From your body language you're leaning heavily on the sink with both hands. The mirror has had a single hand swipe taken down through the condensation, and it's through that gap that we can see only the right side of your face, as you look up from under your brow. Only that bit of your face is in focus. Don't know if you're exhausted, pissed off, hung-over, but there's a serious 'don't fuck with me' vibe behind the look.

Sexy? Really? I hadn't thought of it that way. It was just a raw visceral image that popped into my head. No idea whether you're dressed or have just hopped out of the shower - just that look, shot back from the mirror.

Though that said, after I replied I thought a series of steamy mirror shots with you could be interesting, but I have no idea why, or how they'd be shot.

I can see that.

I'm noticing anger is a theme so far with these. Not sure if that's just me being an angry little man, or I like it because it's primal, raw, and honest. Maybe it's just because we all have to spend so much time being good little people who don't yell.

But empowerment and action can come from other things too. Laughter, sex, knowledge...

That said, I love righteous fury. As opposed to just being angry about thing not going one's way, I like the anger where it doesn't matter if this goes my way or not, it's just wrong!
