I randomly saw John Waters at Rocket to Venus in Hampden a couple weeks ago. This isn't exactly a winning photo of him, but I thought I would share it. I wish I was a little braver and asked instead to take a proper portrait but I was feeling kind of shy.
I actually recently had one of my photos published in the June issue of Playboy and the photo accompanies an article by Waters himself. So... I had a perfect in to approach him about taking his photo. But I didn't and maybe it was good thing. I wouldn't want people bothering me all the time if I were a celebrity. But since he lives part-time in Baltimore I figure I'll have some other chances to get a better photo of him. I'd love to take his portrait with some medium format Fuji Astia and one of my TLRs. Maybe I'll get that opportunity at some point.
