Being new to Duluth has presented a bit of a dilemma. Well, I'm not that new to Duluth, been here 2 years. However, I haven't met many people. And the ones I have, are parents and coasties w/ crazy busy lives just like mine. So finding people to shoot has been a bit few and far between.

Even more difficult is finding someone into doing what I'd like to shoot. My usual awkward moment starters include
"Put on this long white dress and climb that tree barefoot"
"Lay down in the mud over there"
"Hop in the 30 degree river for just a minute"
"How do you feel about cemeteries?"

Yeah, along those line, I'm usually more tactful though.

So with the lack of willing friends, I'm going to attempt this myself. Feel free to laugh here.

Any tips on being my own model and photographer? (I have a remote)
Thanks!

I think youll do fine. But you know, if you ever want someone to do something crazy for you, all you ahve to do is post the request here. I think just about everyone here is willing to help out if they can.
And Id put on a dress and climb a tree barefoot anytime ;)

dc22487 one of my fave photos of all time is the one that you took while in 30degree river!

Of course, 30degrees is pretty warm, I try to aim at self photos when the wind chill is below 0...

I figure that if no one thinks what I'm doing is a bit odd, then the results will probably be fairly sanitary, and quickly forgotten.

I have to say, out of every group I've ever belonged to you guys are hands down the nicest and most helpful bunch! I am really thankful!

Sharksurfer: Thank you! And I might take you up on the dress offer! Wow, love the photo! Now that's dedication! I'm not from here so 30 degrees is freezing! lol

dc22487: I'm a newb, what can I saw lol. Love your work! Really like your treatments. HDR or Lucis Art?

katzmark06 & fallfaceforward: Thank you!!!! I'm game whenever. If you guys would like to get together sometime let me know! I am lucky to have an amazing shooting location in my backyard as well. I have the French River and some beautiful woods out back. I'm up for anywhere and time!

neither HDR nor Lucis ART... just good light and careful tweaking (sometimes not so careful) in adobe lightroom. (thanks by the way :) )

dc22487: Awesome! That's some of the best DH emulation I've seen w/ PS.

katzmark06: I have Lucis, I think it's 5, no idea lol. But it's pretty cool. Still learning how to use it well. Wish 6.0 wasn't so expensive!

Jon: Be careful or I might have plans for you guys when you come to visit! =)
