I have a hankering for a faux mugshot to use as a "goofy" profile image various places on the internets (here, facebook, etc.). I know there are several folks here with a pile of nice strobes just looking for places to use them.

The rules: I can give you nothing in return but a handshake and you have to grant me a license to use the image as I see fit. Also, you've got to have a sense of humor at least as troubled as mine.

Any takers?

Now I wish I had bought one of those film holders that puts tow half sized exposures onto a sheet of 4x5 film that they used to use in the olden days for mugshots.

If you do this, you need to go on a bender some night, and then shoot it at about 3:30 am. Preferably with a nap in the yard for about an hour beforehand to get your hair full of twigs & leaves.

That's too bad, that would've been excellent. Isn't there something we can rig up?

p.s. i've planned for months to convince a friend (or maybe do it myself) to stay awake for 72 hours, and document (with a simple snapshot) every hour.

In my experience, you start to get REALLY crazy after 48h. Would be doable.

What would be interesting would be to do it a lot of times with different victims -- 30 or more -- and then show it as a collection of 4x5s or 5x7s as a bunch of "timelines" so you could see them side-by-side. In my mind, I see something with that low-contrast peel-apart Polaroid look :-).

Drew, we'll fire this up next weekish, then. Anyone else who wants to come play mugshot can come, too.

Good luck on finals.

I played a show called ELEGY 5 years back where we played a drone for 25 hours straight and that was all I could take. 72 hours. Yikes. I want to see that.
