So I came up with this photo project called Angels+Demons where I work with models and/or actors with the idea that they portray their demigod of choice, choosing their own costumes, makeup, etc., using the same light set-up and backdrop for continuity. Shot three sessions so far, and, my God, the images are looking good. The sitters are bringing so much to the project, such a sense of play, that they continue to surprise me.
Even more exciting, I have at least five more sessions set up (with two more in the works and a number of other people expressing interest), so the thing feels like it’s really taking off. It’s such a kick when people come to you excited about project and bring so many rich and original ideas with them. How it’s all going to turn out, I have no idea, but it feels really, really good.
Anyway, if there’s other Portlanders interested in participating, let me know.
