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

[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!

Excellent! Because you inspired the whole idea in the first place. No really. I was laying in bed resting, and kept having the same visual with you crop up, which I then kept spinning off into other ideas, which got me wondering how I'd shoot other people, hence this post.

Okay, so the visual I kept getting was you at Lake Ballard, or some other huge salt lake, at sunrise or sunset. Probably sunrise. And generally it was a intimate look at your face in the soft morning light, examining the shapes and lines, with the flatness of the salt lake stretching back behind you to where it meets the sky.

From there I had a bunch of other ideas. I did idly wonder about a couple of simple nudes in that same environment, maybe even posed similar to the pictures I took of myself there. What was funny was that I'd quite forgotten that you'd commented on that post until I went back to grab the link address for this reply, so now I'm wondering if my subconscious has been mulling that over all this time :)

The other idea I had would require a huge finished picture to do it justice. Big close-up of your face, very tightly focusing on the reflection in your eye. Depending on the composition, we may only see the area just around your eye. The reflection is of the salt lake environment, so land and sky essentially, with a stargate in it. So the ring of the inactive gate reflected in your eye sits halfway between your pupil and the outer edge of your iris.
