Some of the best views are achieved… via trespassing.

From a portrait set that was skater themed and these poses happened. I’m pretty sure what I said was “smile… more” … and this is the reaction.
I may or may not know this person. ;)
This summarizes what my life has been like the last few months fairly well. Here’s Z grabbing for my camera strap.
Coffee Roasting with Broadcast Coffee. This the step where you check for bad beans.
Thanks Barry and crew for letting me come with.
“We were a two career family. I was a nuclear engineer. I designed shields for the fuel reactors on the first nuclear submarines. He was a carpenter.”
I love hearing stories like this.

Thought Experiment 1
TLDR: I’m working on a new personal project.
I’ve been really busy lately. Almost too busy. Some of this is my own doing and some of it… is just me being super distracted. It’s a tension and I realize this.
This title isn’t original to me. A friend of mine mentioned doing a “thought experiment” to bring up a discussion on a specific topic. This immediately clicked in my head with what has been rolling around for my next personal project.
Experiment: How do I show thought?
I’ve been a photographer for years now and so much of what I have done both professionally and personally has been focused on happy smiling faces or slack / sexy faces. For this, I’m done with that. I’m going to try something else for this personal project.
Why experiment? Thinking about this project this way has helped me realize that the end goal might change and that I can be super critical of myself during the process and invite others to be critical. After all, the process of learning is valuable. I also look forward to learning more about myself and others around me.
I’ve done a few things different from other shoots which has helped bring focus: - I’ve asked those modeling to bring something they generally wouldn’t bring to something like this. Nothing weird, just something else - I’ve taken the picture right after asking a question. Picturing the immediate reaction / thought.
Hypothesis: Picture the reaction to a question.
Has someone else already done this? Probably, but I’m interested in figuring this out for myself instead of reading about someone else doing it. Stay tuned. Or, join in?

Work view. Working from home this week has been interesting. Both in changing my normal view and offering new distractions and abilities to concentrate.
