Happy new year everyone, and apologies if you’re a bit squeamish…..
Was going to save this idea in favour of a completely different approach for this week, but on reflection, asking the wife to pack a suitcase, and pose for some bye bye shots with runny mascara probably wouldn’t have been the best way of starting the new year, even if it was just for a shoot.
The second idea I had was a bin bag full of booze, not sure why I never did that now but sure there was a reason.
Anyhow, I read today that smokers on 20 a day will lose 2 teeth on average, every 10 years. I lost my 10 year 2, just before christmas within a week off each other. Ties in niceley with one of my resolutions….. No, I’m not giving up smoking, I’m giving up reading about healthier choices…….
Anyhow – After 12 years of neglecting my gnashers, I decided on a new beginning for my remaining pegs, with regular trips to the dentist.
(Just noticed that I also forgot to check my ISO before setting up – I thought the flash was doing a good job on 1/64)
Late submission, but in my head it still counts.
Wanted to try and stay away from the obvious again, and whilst not really pushing the limits in a photographic sense, I’m quite pleased that I managed to come up with an idea that was again a little different from the first thing that pops into my head. Wanted to capture the ‘fasting’ element with he empty plate and water, but thought about how dieting is almost a religion for some people as well (hence the tape measure).
