So I get an email from an designer at a magazine about an article on pine straw
"This isn't an usual assignment and doesn't seem like it will be very easy. That is why I have chosen you, you know how to make something look great when it isn't..I am hoping you will take this assignment on and prove to me how great pine needles are."
I love a challenge and was excited about shooting pine straw .............

So I don't have a freaky foot fetish, this is another Can't say who the client is, the robot spiders are always searching the web. It's hard to find a good ethnically neutral female foot model, but we did ( thanks to Fuse Talent ). Soft box over head, 2 grids with 1/4ct as backlight. , blue gel, grid,cine-foil for the background.
I'm always getting calls to do location headshots. This is my ideal set-up 15 feet X 25 feet, but I can make anything work most of the time. It seems clients always say "we have a conference room and we can push the table to the side" . We usually end up in the buildings lobby or the warehouse.

Off to Scotland Neck for more annual report images. We shot at the Sylvan-Heights Waterfowl Park. I now have 100's of images of every duck/water bird you can think of. Our subject Tony was great and open to any ideas. It was overcast, used a AB400 for some side light to help give the image some contrast.
Deja Vu- So I had this Deja Vu as we drove through downtown Scotland Neck. After the shoot, my assistant and I went to grab a bite to eat at this Italian restaurant. I could swear I've been here before ..... On the wall was a plaque from Our State Magazine and an image I'd shot back in 2005. I won't mention the name of the restaurant,but it's probably the only Italian restaurant in Scotland Neck. It took 1 1/2 hour to get lunch and the food wasn't that great. Deja Vu.
Drove down to Wilmington for part of the annual report shoot. It was gray and raining when we left. Got lucky the sun came out. It was a weird quality of light, I think we were at the weather front,gray sky to one side and sunny the other. Used 1 AB800w with double diffusion for fill light.
