Yesterday’s post of the crime scene photo shoot created some strong reactions. Here are a few that I received:
“Absolutely disturbing” -Dave
“Love it!” -Kris
“We should have mixed blood” -Harley
“Sick and wrong” -Michelle
“Love the lighting” -Scott
“It was great!” -Erik
The last comment quoted above was from Erik, the “Victim” in the shots. Erik is the teenage son of a regular reader of LeggNet’s Digital Capture. He had a great time modeling for the shoot and is looking forward to working with us again. Laying on a concrete floor for extended periods of time while lighting is set up and adjusted can be mundane, yet Erik was extremely patient and cooperative to work with.
Today’s image is one I shot of Erik between scenes at the Saturday shoot. While walking past this window, I saw this great light and quickly had Erik pose for a portrait. It was nice to capture a friendly photo of him in the midst of all the simulated carnage.
