Styling Shoot

Nothing in particular at the moment is interesting, well, my class at uni is setting up a catwalk show for tuesday.. not everything is sorted out still which isn't good, and the models are coming in on thursday for fittings or something, but i can't make it :S im being called to help on a real shoot! I guess its not too overly important that i be there for thursday, though its not good that i miss it, but this is a real styling shoot that is experience and something my course is about. Hmm.

Well, last week i had my first shoot for my own project, i havent got any final pics, but i did take some while i didnt do my job and watched the designer do it herself and the photographer do his thang. We're all uni students, so when i mention 'photographer' or 'designer' in this post, they're either 2nd or 3rd years in my uni. This was a collaboration project.

The model is just a normal girl, goes to uni and happens to be tall and skinny that people ask her to model for them as a favour. Being my first shoot, i never realised how much you just stand around, of course, i wasn't meant to, the designer wasn't meant to be there and i was meant to be art directing/styling instead, not her. But otherwise, it is generally quite a stressful thing, setting them up, getting the location, its not very glamorous, the weather was freezing but you need to get the shoot done.

Im excited for the shoot on thursday, im not sure what im doing exactly, all i know is that im helping out, dont know if i'll be able to take photos but if there are, i'll find the link... this will be explained later :)

Soon after this last shot was taken, snow started falling. Then came the infamous Snow Day of february!

I am indeed. Im constantly apologising for lack of posts and that i will post more and at the same time stop apologising.

Ive been thinking of something to post, unlike some brilliants blogs, im not constantly creating AMAZING art - inside the cabinet of wonder is one main blog i can think of that does said things. BUT, finally, i have something! In a few hours, im onset for my photoshoot for uni - im only the mere stylist and concept person so my role isnt that impressive. But this means i shall have photos. I owe a few people other photos of things so that is an excuse to upload pics from my camera which i dread doing when i do take photos. Its lazy-ness on my behalf basically.

Ive seen 3 films in the past 3days (not including today), i saw a preview of Revolutionary Road on thursday, Rachel getting Married on friday, and Twilight again yesterday :) i had planned to see Nick and Nora's infinite playlist on friday but i didnt arrive early enough for the showing - i had planned to see two films that day - on my ownsome, its not too bad watching films on your own.. but thats a different less-rushed post - and then yesterday, after Twilight, but the nearest cinema that played it, well, me and my friend wasnt sure where it was.. so we'll see it together sometime next week, but im seeing it on monday though.

This post doesnt make sense, im trying to just brief through things ive been doing but this is an 'epic fail' and i need to stop typing. Its currently around 1:07am as i type - regardless of the time blogger post thing is telling you and i need to be up around 5:15 to get my 5:54am bus - i dont even know what time my first bus is! - so i can be on my location shoot thing for 8am. Long story, i shall explain later. I really will

Ooh, i also recieved my long-awaited full series of Six Feet Under! Finally! I saw a small part when i was younger but i never really paid it attention because my mind was elsewhere, but i do love three of the male actors, um, sorry for spelling mistakes, Peter Kraus, Freddy Rodriguez and Michael C. Hall. I love them, i may not be able to spell their surnames right on first try but i do love the shows they star in.

So long, fare well, auf weidersehen, goodbye.
