Day 10 of 365 babe-a-lorful photos!
Chloé has not really been the best sport when it has come to this project. Taking these photos with her has been trying to say the least.
Part of it is my fault. I’m telling her to do things, act natural, but make this face, just be yourself, run, walk, sit, stare, funny, happy, throw your arms out, just be a kid, twirl around, no, yes, no, yes.
Poor fucking kid. She wasn’t feeling it most of these days. Complaining and whining about it mostly. But when asked about it later, she the idea of it in theory.
So I told her the other day after shooting her day 9 photo that if she doesn’t have a better attitude about it, we’ll just stop. No hard feelings. But I don’t need to parade around with whimpering kid every damn night asking if “are we done yet?” just to get a good picture out.
Maybe this was the wrong medium to showcase my cool kid?
Well if so, you couldn’t tell by this photo. I think it’s badass and one of my favorites ever. As a matter of fact I don’t think I’ve ever been able to produce a photo like this before.
We found this bench and the sun had just gone done. The good lighting you see was coming from field lights of the soccer game being played next to us. It provided an almost strobe-like effect for the lighting on my little rockstar.
And her attitude? Pretty good this time. I even gave her a little prize. But I don’t know if we’re going to be able to do this everyday.
