Model - (The Inimitable) Rachel Brice
On Friday the 13th of 2005, Rachel Brice invited me into her dressing room to shoot for a few minutes after a show she just finished.
Conditions were nowhere near
ideal. I only had my 6.1 MP Digital Rebel, plastic piece-of-shite kit lens, no lighting other than the fluorescent tubes in the ceiling, and an endless stream of people muscling into the dressing room to congratulate/meet her.
But Rachel was very cool, and despite the myriad of distractions, she managed to remain aware that I was trying to photograph her. All throughout the meeting-and-greeting that was happening, she would shoot little glances/poses my way, whenever possible. She is the epitome of the Performing Artist, as a breed.
I was even invited to have sushi with her and her entourage, afterward
I walked away from the experience with several photos that (at the time) were the best ones I had taken (by my standards), thus-far. Or at least, the ones I was the happiest
with, in my photographic infancy. Either way, it was a pretty damn good day...especially considering it was on a day that has been traditionally associated with bad luck, by the superstitious among us.
So, happy Friday the 13th Tutorial videos of my post-production and Photoshop techniques are available now at: www.ibarra2.com
