Day 1: Vulgar Display of Power.

    Newer Older

    I hear a bunch of people are starting their 4th or 5th Look at My Face 365 times project. I decided to attempt a People Getting Punched in the Face 365 project. Or is it 366? Or 2? Not sure. Anyway, here it is.

    OMG and the strobist info! AB800 at 1/8 directly behind subject pointed at black paper backdrop. AB800 at 1/8 in front of subject bounced off umbrella. AB800 at 1/4 to subject's 2-o-clock shot through obnoxiously large octobox!

      Last night my son was trying his martial arts moves on me. I blocked one of his punches, in which his punching arm hit my blocked hand and ricocheted backwards and he punched himself in the eye. I shit you not. He cried a lot. I got blamed of course. This project seems ambitious. I hope to see blood and bruises in the future.

      This fucking rocks!
      But for the record, i never finished my first 365, sooooo i am in fact gonna try a 52 weeks. Don't hate. It is stimulating my creativity.
      But can i have you punch me in the face for like my week 3 or something? Cuz that would just be cool. Even though the good title is already taken.
      Vic, this is awesome shot.
