Shooting Sputnik

Paying pensions with my quarters. That seems to be the plan.

If I'm not mistaken this was my first shoot of 2011 (not to be confused with 2012). They're a friend of a friend who saw some of my work on facebook (I love facebook (and Hashem, though not in that order). Not that I'm very active but it is free advertising.).

The monumental shootage started at Veteran's Park in Redondo Beach, after which we meandered down (they meandered, I ran backwards) to the pier. It's quite a pier this Redondo version. Much to buy, more to eat and they even have this huge scale so you could see how much you gained (and consequentially how much aerobics you need to do (does anyone still do aerobics? Please tell me they at least changed the costume)).

The boys were ├╝ber cute, ridiculously well behaved and smart to boot (to boot? really?). Parents were fun, and the dad had to go because he had a satellite to launch. Seriously. Now I know who to blame when my phone loses reception. Darn commies.

I still have some film to develop, so we may see some updates in the future. Stay tuned.

In other news I got this awesome new photoshop plugin (technically a script) that compiles the photos into neat little storyboards. Upside is it looks awesome and tells a story (more on that in a subsequent (which is directly underneath sequent) post). Downside is I don't get to write corny comments about each photo (quite possibly an upside).

I also widened my blog, so some of the previous posts will look awkward until i find such time as to fix things up.

This post is best served warm with a chilled beer and pink sauerkraut.

I think I'll break it up next time so it will load better. Remind me.
