I met up with Megan Gattozzi of ATTIC this morning for a Dead Precedence shoot.
She expressed that she wanted to work with worms and dirt. I wasn’t sure if I was going to go for spaghetti or lo mein. Lawl
Not being much of a fisherman, I wasn’t sure where to get worms. Via a search for fishing supplies, Google Maps sent us to an antique store, some guy’s house, and a golf course in College Park. We ended up southwest of downtown, in a shop which carried tools, roosters, you name it. Oh, and worms.
Megan ended up accidentally eating dirt, and was totally pro about it. Nothing a little rum and cranberry juice didn’t fix. Notice the worm crawling up (or down) her collarbone.
Shot at 1/1000 f/5.6 ISO 3200
The result is hella sharp and spot on.
*No worms were harmed in the making of this image, and were later released into the wild where they will die naturally.

So I met up with Travis Braxton of the Wendigo to shoot some portraits. The poor buggar was using some shots I took from a New Year’s Eve party I threw last year (he killed it) as his album art and general promo stuff.
After considering/scouting a couple locations, I decided on a little psychic shop on Mills called Readings by Dinah. The place has two neon signs that made for a killer backdrop to Travis’ otherworldly (underworldly?) presence.
I shot wide open at f2 at 1/640. I shut out a lot of the ambient light with the fast shutter speed to isolate Travis and the signs. I lit him with a single flash at 1/64 power, which was more than enough at f2.
We got the second shot in the next lot over. I stopped down to f4 and put a snoot on the flash and pulled it back like 6 feet to cast a hard shadow on his (the dead animal’s) face.
I’ll be meeting up with Travis later this weekend to shoot another portrait, as I might not be seeing him for a bit!
