Some triumphs and some stumbling blocks

Well I have some good news and some bad news.
I was able to get one of my last photos finished yesterday. It looks alright.

Mine is the photo on top and the bottom was my reference. I think that I did pretty well on the contrast parts of the image and my model has a really good expression.
I think that the reference did a better job in the cleanliness of the photo but at the same time the grittiness of my photo gives it a little more character, I feel. So here's my 9th photo. Woot!
Now the stumbling block. I was supposed to have gone to the Salt Flats early this morning to have a shoot. However, my model bailed last night. I was pretty disappointed. I now either have to do it with another model on short notice or I'll just have to wait until after the application process. It's too bad, because it would have been a killer image for my portfolio. :( All is not lost yet, but I'm thinking that another shoot would be a lot easier.
So here's what I'm thinking. For DeviantArt there is a contest that has the name of "Sweet". what I wanted to do was make it a photo of either an addict, or a patient taking Sugar in an IV or something like that. It's supposed to be a little weird and it'll take some good editing. But my question is, does anyone know where I can get medical supplies like an IV and the bag that goes with it?
Anyway, these are my ideas as of late.
Also, as a side note, in my free time I watch shows. And I just finished this really really sweet one from Korea called My Lovely Kim Sam Soon. It's on Hulu. Go check it out if you want a good laugh and if you want a good romance. But also, be ready to read subtitles!


  1. Call Lindsay! lol. Unless she's the one that bailed, in that case, I don't know what to tell you. :(

  2. If I were in Utah, I would totally volunteer for the shoot. Sorry you're having trouble. You'll have to let us know how the shoot turns out!
