Default My first modeling shoot (I am so excited)

Can you imagine? Me taking pictures of a model? Of course I wasn't paid, and I strongly doubt that my shots are going to make any magazine.

But hey, a small crew (two photographers and a model) were hard at work on Second Ave and Ninth Street, so why shouldn't I take a few shots?

The model is setting up...



On the next two shots, I could have done a lot better. The photographer has obviously chosen to use a camera that is far too heavy for him to use. Poor guy can't even lift it high enough to shoot the models face...

A funny series. I like the first opportune pick.

I like this series, there is always models and photographers pouncing around in the village, shoot that is the starbucks I go for coffee at allot of time. Think allot of if is from the film school and photography students from NYU.

To bad the bald chocolate man shop close where the was posing at. They made a better hot chocolate then starbucks.

Thanks Shotturtle, Ordo. No, these aren't NYU students. I'm not sure what kind of a video they were making, but clearly head shots were only number two (three? four?) on their priority list.

I'm sorry to say that I didn't hang around very long. Chato and I were coming back from the Cheese store on Third Ave, and were anxious (well, at least I was anxious) to put all the food away.

For some reason the idea of me becoming a Big Time Model photographer, and this lady being my first victim, pardon me, Subject, struck me as very funny. All of them saw me "setting up," and paid no attention.

I recognize the photographer. His name is Pierre Woodman. He does nice movies.

Ahhh!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pierre_Woodman

Poor guy ought to get some lighter video equipment, so he can lift the camera a bit higher. I guess he's more experienced with shooting people who are prone, and not up-right.

A bunch of NYU students shanghaid me into making a short movie. In that movie I played a serial killer. No sex, no sex...

And weird as it might sound, Chato played my assisstant! I should post some screen grabs, and amuse everyone. In order to get the right facial expressions I simply immitated Dick Cheney...

If anyone wants to see such screen grabs, please let me know.

Got to be careful with those NYU kids, they are always trying to hijack people to do artsy thing in the village.
