I went back and forth between this and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" (Porsche in garage shot)


I'm sure I've made a mistake, but I really DO like this one best.

THANKS BUNCHES to my sweet model, Carolyn, for coming over after school when her mom said she would without asking her beforehand. She was SUCH a trooper!! Thanks also to her mom who poked her in the eye and stuff to get her hands the way the movie poster shows the actor, while I worked with the light and stuff.

Golly. I love shooting people!! *grin*

Thanks also to Johnathan (the grunter), Megan (the sweet one), and Hannah (my heart), for the help in deciding.

I look forward to hearing you grunt in person, Johnathan, and meeting your sweet self, Megan. :D

I'm surprised that this is a 5.6... especially since it was asked for Validation during voting. Not sure what that was about...

I thought it was at least as good a my average stuff. *sigh*

I was trying for the movie poster: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close I think I'd have had to have Expert editing to get hands that small for a face that big, though.

Nice set up here. The attention immediately is drawn to the eyes. Then I noticed the paper. I think it was shot nicely. It's an "in your face" shot, seriously.
