Several years ago I was working on a self-assigned project. I photographed portraits of friends and family in different, sometimes funny, settings. I decided to add myself to the collection. Obviously the photo was taken at night, in my backyard using my studio lights. At the time I had no one assisting, helping or even applauding, so there was a lot of jumping up and down from the wicker chair to get the details just right.
I get many hits to my blog and they arrive via internet search. How do people find me? By googling “superhero fill-in-the-blank“. I’m a comic book fan, have attended the New York City ComicCon and have photographed many folks in their super hero outfits. Occasionally I’ll post a photo on my blog to have some fun. Little did I realize that many of my visitors would find my blog, not because I wrote something regarding the current state of photography, but because I have someone in a set of tights. Now if only superheroes were real because maybe then they’d hire me to do their portraits.
