My plan for today was to knock out some laundry and get some good reading time in. Of course, the laundromat was packed to the max leaving no dryers open. Miraculously I managed to shove 3 loads of laundry in one dryer. I set the timer for 72mins and skipped out. Feeling a little exhausted I jetted up to my place to bring myself back to life. Maybe a round of breathing exercises and some tea will do the trick? As I looked in the mirror -almost to pity myself- my blackest of black eye liner caught my eye. Instantly, the beautiful image of Julianne Moore lining her eyes in A SINGLE MAN filled me with inspiration. I slowly drew one line across the middle of my lid doing my best to replicate the lines of Ms. Moore. Before I knew it both of my lids were black. I HAD TO SHOOT. I looked at my bathroom clock – ok I have 1hour! I didn't have time to complain, talk myself out of it or nit pick about details. It was go time. I ripped off my bedding moved a few things around and created my set. Camera- tripod- lights. I set my camera on the 10 second timer and jumped back and forth playing the role of model and the photographer…
10 minutes for make-up
5 minutes to pick the backdrop and tear all the sheets from my bed
5 minutes to set the tripod and the light- this was definitely a record
5 minutes to style myself - i wasn't wearing much
20 minutes of shooting just enough to get a few shots
10 minutes to clean up and pick up the laundry.
