Instead of being the photographer, I switched roles and became the one who was photographed in a photo shoot, along with another friend. We went all out… we changed outfits, had props, went to a remote location, and had a photographer’s (and models’ :)) assistant. The scene was an abandoned fort located in the mountains north of Golden Gate Bridge. The decrepid building gave us lots of different angles, and the door and window frames let our imaginations run free.
It really helped to be a photographer myself because I understood what it takes, and how much time it takes just to capture shots, which don’t always turn out great. That’s why I like taking pictures of flowers and buildings… they’re in no hurry to go anywhere.
Hmm… so in one weekend I’ve discovered that I can be an actress and/or a model. 8)
