Long days at work sometimes means less time for getting outside before the sun goes down. Even though I am often tired at the end of the day, picking up my camera let’s me escape the busy work that is behind me, even if it is only for a few minutes. → Peter Schweitzer
Dec. 6 I See Your Smiling Face Like I’ve Never Seen Before
It should be no surprise I have a lot of black instant pics because Dumbass McGee here often forgets to take the lens cap off her camera, and I tend to hoard them to make use in other things like collages and masks for other images. In this case I ended up using them for the lyrics, and added more pics with my polaroid zink photos, attaching things with pretty washi tape. Mei pictures usually come quickly in a flash, so it wasn’t a lot of work, since I had work and cookies to do @_@.
Of the hundreds of Polaroids I shot at Sundance this is definitely my favorite. I wasn’t even supposed to photograph Kristen this year and at the end of the day I walked into my studio to start packing up and there she was looking at the wall of polaroids. “These are cool”. “Thanks, I’m mike. Can I shoot one of you?” “Sure”. I shot two frames and then she disapeared out the backdoor into an SUV.
