I've recently started a project that seems doomed.
I've started a year-long project with a new model. A camera shy one.
Now- I have to say that she has been great. She agreed to DO the
project with me(HUGE for her!!!She trusts very few people with a camera around her after a monumental FUBAR involving another photographer/friend and it was a golden opportunity for me as a photographer so we decided to go for it!) and during our first mini-shoot she
really started to loosen up and seemed to get into the spirit of it. But
the past couple of weekends(it's a couple of hours every weekend kind
of project- not too time consuming for either of us) something has come
up that prevented us from our shoot.
I know- things like that happen all
the time- but for some reason this project is fighting us at every
turn. It may take two years, but we WILL see this thru. It's too
important to us both. I have so many ideas for the shoots.
problem is that we live so far apart. When we started planning the
project we both lived in the same town- about 10 minutes apart. Well,
Breianna(my camera shy model)- got a fabulous new job,
and a fabulous new significant other, and a fabulous new apartment in a
fabulous little town a couple weeks later and now lives about 40 miles
away from me. So with us both working our day jobs during the week, a
commute during the week is totally out of the question, and we've
planned on alternating weekends travel for the shoots, but we also have
to take in our significant others plans for us- as well as the weather
and travel and it's ....difficult.
But we WILL get it done. We are both
just that kind of stubborn and as Goddesses, we WILL have our way.
