american color check

So this is what I do. Dan (on the right) and I were testing a shot I set up for a magazine. The story was about two women who are on the forefront of “Green Meetings” or eco-friendly corporate events. I really liked the propping, but when the subjects arrived I was informed that they would never put out legal pads and prefilled water glasses for a “Green Meeting”. So, all the stuff was striked struck and I actually used my laptop in the final shot.

I wouldn’t normally put a photo of myself up there, but I thought this was pretty funny.

    technically it would be stuck as in the past tense of strike and not striked.

    Thanks Munny. Noted and fixed. And by the way, I meant struck with an "R" like a pirate… arrrgggh.

    The set up is a cool idea for the story. As for the image, it cracks me up; it's the serious faces in the surreal setting. Instead of a colour chart, I think you should do a whole series holding a variety of different objects, like an aardvark or a sink plunger. Or wearing different hats like a trilby or a fez.

    Of course, it could be the case that I should drink less caffeine.

  4. I really like the idea and last but not least the lighting.
