01/26/2005: "Whoa! Break Out Your Crimping Irons!"

casey (62k image)

In my defense, this was shot for a hair care products company a few years back...
model: Casey
makeup and hair: Elke Von Freudenberg

New shots are coming folks, I just have to get them ready for the public. :-) Anyway, I don't have a lot to say about this other than... I got nothin. Well, this (for me anyway) is a rare situation where a beautiful girl doesn't look so beautiful, but it works for some reason. I don't think it would have as much impact if she looked pretty in this shot. It's kinda punk rock, I guess.

camera/film: Hasselblad ELM, 150mm. Fuji Provia 100.
lighting: Profoto Ring Flash converted for Speedotron pack.
post Obviously there's a bunch of added saturation here. The blur is a motion blur applied in Photoshop.

Ooooo! Crimping! You know I love the crimping iron... Too bad I did my hair like that in 9th grade. wink

Who keeps giving me 1's on Blog Explosion!?? How can a non political blog piss someone off so much that it deserves a 1? Look, I'm not trying to get to number 1 in the top ten rated blogs there, but sheesh people, a 1?

how do you know you're getting 1's? It doesn't show mine to me.

You know I gave you a 10, you were sitting right there (with a gun to mah head)

My overall score dropped way down with only one vote. It happens all the time. Bastards!

Brooks said @ 01/26/2005 01:12 PM PST

don't you hate when people do that crap???!?!!?!?!?

Alli said @ 01/26/2005 08:12 PM PST

Apparently, no one has anything to say about this particular image. I think the crimps scared them all away.

Brooks said @ 01/26/2005 10:05 PM PST

I like her shoulders.

This picture frightens me.

Piss on the morons who give you a 1. But maybe this picture frightened them too. wink

Alli said @ 01/27/2005 10:18 AM PST
