We survived the warehouse photo shoot with a 1927 cattle fan and a couple of borrowed oscillators…though I think that our makeup artist, Gena, was wondering if she’d run out of tissue to dab beads of sweat between shots. Does anyone like to be photographed? I have so much admiration for those who can work a shoot or walk a runway. I used to think that it was just smiling for a camera but to pose correctly, move your body in realistic motion on command, show the correction emotion when prompted, work under any direction or condition and then come out with a useable magazine cover is unbelievably difficult. Hats off to those whose profession involves a group of strangers looking closely for any imperfection. I wish I could play a piano… and I wish I was at ease in front of a camera. Thank God for Photoshop.
