12/28/2004: "Something Different"

greenfeet (72k image)

I can just see all the foot fetish traffic now...
model: Tamia (Ford Models)
makeup: Karen Faye
nails: Vicki Peters
styling: Karie L. Frost
retouching: Michael Block

This was done for Nailpro Magazine. I don't remember the model, which is weird. I guess I didn't look at her face much that day. I remember she had a cute little dog with her though.

camera/film: Contax 645, Fuji Astia 100F.
lighting: Wow, there were a lot of lights on set this day. I'm not sure I can remember everything, but basically, there are a couple open Speedotron heads under the white plexi and then there is a clear piece of thin plexi on top that we filled with the green fluid (in between). The models legs were side lit with Speedotron heads with grid spots on them. I believe I had a medium size soft box in front for fill.

Nice picture, though. The colors are great!

While those may be the ugliest shoes I have ever seen, it is a compelling photo. Maybe they put her in such awful shoes so you would have to look at her nails!

Its sooooooooooo nice to see other people with long toes! My toes are like hers and I always envied girls with tiny lil pigs.

Alli - us guys really don't give much thought to the size of your piggies. If you're cute as hell and NOT psycho, that's all that it takes for us.

Brooks - fantastic colors. While I have to agree with the "ugliest shoes I have ever seen" comment, it's really great to see some saturated colors. Especially at this time of year.

One problem there Houser. Alli IS Psycho, just read her blog

B this is a beautiful photo. I wish you were nearby so I could stalk you and say "picture me please please please please please?" but then that would be weird. So, uh, yeah. De-Gorgeous Picture. I love all the colors and the little piggies.
