I got to wear wings today

I just got back from a photshoot with one of the artists from my work. We had suggested to him that he use more ‘normal’ looking models and somehow Sharon and I volunteered to be photographed for his work in a spur of the moment kind of way- and he took us up on it.

He was a great guy, very professional and VERY creative. I’m just dying to see the finished product. He had this massive set of wings made from peacock feathers- SO impressive looking. I had wing-lust. We got a few different sets of things. A predator/prey type set, a draping across furniture set, a bundled into a ball on the floor set and an embracing set. It’s been a long time since I was in front of the camera- I’d forgotten how much fun it is. Gotta love being the centre of attention for a couple of hours and getting to play a role and be a character. The drama student in me has had a great morning.

There was only one down side- I got home and couldn’t look through all the shots that had been taken. I knew there was a reason I prefered taking the shots to being in them. I’ll just have to exercize some patience!
