See what I mean?
The ultra-talented, hot-voiced, artistic Ann Rosenquist Fee is one of those patient saints. She agreed, on Saturday, to come over on Sunday to shoot me. Because I needed shots in a hurry to make concert posters for my "Irish Pub" Harp Concert in a hurry and...yeah...welcome to Amy Kortuem's sometimes really excellent concert planning skills.
And so she took up my digital camera and began. Scene setting, hot whiskey, 300+ photos and lots of deep artistic talk and laughter later, we were done. I loved the results.
But of course, there were outtakes. And I'm going to share them because I think sometimes the process of a person's art is just as (if not more) fascinating than seeing the final product without knowing that process. (And because I think they're really, really, really funny.)
Here was that process. Enjoy.
Here it comes...
...wait for it...
Ann: "Amy. Give me back the camera. Now."
Much better. Look at those blurry fingers. I'm shredding it.
Wait, how are my shoes? (I'm distracted by shiny things.)
Leaning on it.
Wait, how's my hair?
Wait, I need more lip gloss. Chanel #158 - Braise.
What's that you say?
You say there's whiskey on the table behind me?
Why, yes there is! There IS whiskey on the table behind me!
However did that get there?
Now we're getting somewhere.
And...it's a keeper.
Thanks, Ann. I owe you. Just imagine what we could do with really good cameras.
And I hope everyone can come and see me play in person. I promise, no giggles (riiiight).
