inviting eyes... by cweeks inviting eyes... by cweeks
i got a print request from this shoot. totally forgot about it. we (meaning ... i shot it but had 2 assistants, hair, makeup, a stylist and the designer) shot this for an la designer at the argyle hotel in the penthouse.

so much fun. no really. even though the makeup artist hated me (she and i used to date) ... and hair took for-fucking-ever ... i got about forty-five minutes to shoot.

okay ... above and beyond that bullshit ... i love shooting joline. i cast her WHENEVER i can. she's amazing. she just turns it on. and on.

suffice it to say that this went from a shoot to a party. maybe much to the chagrin of the designer ... no one would believe what fell out of my pocket in front of the designer when i was going for my light meter.

i don't roll my own cigarettes ... if you guys get the drift.

okay ... i just love joline's eyes ... and the thought of her drunk in my hotel bath.

nikon d1x. 17-35 f2.8. i believe i was shooting about a 60th at about f/8. 2400ws of hensel. some bounced. some in a large beauty dish on a boom. the fucking bathroom was cramped as hell.

That's a shame the hair took forever- doesn't look too special ;)

Well done shot, for the cramped space.

I've always wondered why some girls, like Joline here, are still hot even though they have a big schnoz. It even adds to their looks in some odd way.

Very nice, her expression is great, and the pose is wonderful too :)

thanks, mate!
dry-apple-cider Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2005
very sexy indeed :) that glass of wine is really fantastic. i like her pose, and expression. only thing that bothers my eye just a tiny bit is that corner of a carpet (?) on a lower left corner. but other than that, this is perfection to me, the lightning, tones and focus, and of course the model.

jark Featured By Owner May 29, 2004
now that is a cool shot. love the pose and composition. her look is deadly and sexy, simultaneously. wouldn't wanna rub her the wrong way methinks!
cweeks Featured By Owner May 29, 2004
thanks ... you're right ... she has the look down.

honestly, though, she's such a geek ... that she's cooler than almost anyone i know in hollywood.

some dude she was dating a few years ago wouldn't let her leave his bedroom and she pulled his own 9mm on him!

love this girl. wouldn't date her ... but love her.

Really great shot. However - Your story makes it that much better. :)
cweeks Featured By Owner May 28, 2004
usually ... the extent of a story when i submit to the client is a relatively concise caption ...

here ... i get to editorialize! glad you like 'em!

Really good idea and very actractive girl... I think I should use my mind and my imagination better :)
cafezero Featured By Owner May 26, 2004
those fishnets make her skin look like scales....interesting.

bathrooms are always cramped shooting spaces...even the huge ones I shot in with Kal in upstate NY, the shots of Kate in the tub.
Virtu-Imagery Featured By Owner May 26, 2004  Hobbyist Photographer
This is totally cool.
This has that Film Noir ambiance to it.
Fantastic composition.
I love her facial expression and those fishnet stockings are totally sexy.
A most chic and stylish photograph.
Sweet work man:+fav:
