Gun day at the photo shoot

March 10, 2013 | By | 3 Replies More

I’ve been making steady progress in my studies of photography over the past 10 years. This year I finally bought an DSLR (a Canon D7), and it has been a joy to really learn how use the controls of a high-performance camera.

My 14 year old daughter JuJu and I have been attending photography classes for the past year. Today we attended a model shoot at St. Louis Photo Authority in St. Louis, Missouri, where the owner, Ed Crim provided four models and excellent guidance. It was a lot of fun, as you can see from my work.

Today the theme for the models was “guns,” which made me a bit apprehensive, but we had a great time shooting models who all had access to guns as props.  Here’s a sample of the portraits I took. Nothing like having the right equipment and some good teachers.  Click for higher res images.

    Over the years, “National Lampoon” magazine has occasionally parodied well known magazines. Some of the parody issues featured a fake cover, located in the center pages of the magazine, could be made into an alternate cover by turning the issue inside out.
    The first photo reminds me of a “Playboy” parody they did back in the 80’s called “Slayboy”. As I recall (since I was unable to find the image online) it included a “Slaymate of the Month” page, featuring a blonde model, seductively dressed in camo, showing a bit more cleavage and holding an assault rifle.
