I've been taking more photos of models recently than anything else, and it dawned on me that that's why I haven't been IN LOVE with a photo for a while. I never think I spend an excess amount of time during a shoot doing anything particularly painful or embarrassing or difficult, but then I go with other people, and MAN can models complain. I never spend quite enough time anymore to get the perfect shot because “the waters too cold” or “my various limbs hurt” or “Lissy, can I get up now, this thing is digging into my back.” When it's just me, I suffer alone for my art. With other people your top priority is making them comfortable, and reassuring them that they're doing well. WELL NO MORE.
ANYWHO, I do have impossibly high standards of what I post here, but if you want to see photos that just didn't make the cut, I post them on my facebook page.
