Author Photo Shoot Outtakes
Back in May, my college friend Eugene Prahin (and his beautiful wife Emilia) spent the day taking pictures of me near Columbus Circle and in Central Park. It was a lot of fun, yet somewhat exhausting. Euge kept asking me to "look/pose/act different" in every shot, and I just couldn't do anything but smile the same way each time. Tyra Banks is right--modeling IS hard!
Anyway, Euge did an amazing job and I had a ton of really nice photos to choose from. However, there were some pics that were not so flattering, and there were some I just couldn't use for one reason or another. So I thought it might be cool to share a few with you, plus add a teeny bit of commentary, of course. Okay, here we go!
I believe the direction here was "do something flashy." This is all I could come up with. Nice, huh?
I was told to "look like you wrote a sexy vampire book." Hmmmm....not quite.
This was my brilliant idea. I was supposed to be fish balloon. But instead I just appear to be mentally insane.
