Here's another version of the shot yesterday that I wanted you to see. The point of this blog is not to show a finished product - far from it. Most of the images are taken within a week or two of the post, with minor and sometimes imperfect editing.
The point is really to show the stream and the process. I think it's important for people learning photography to see the process and how things develop, and it's been really good for me to do posts in this way. It's good for my own thought process.
Anyway, not sure which one I like better. It probably depends on the context.

Cindy Sherman, Untitled Film Stills #21
The Cindy Sherman self portrait is one of the first photographs I can remember. Always been a favorite.
I was fortunate enough to have an utterly fascinating interview with Eric Danville for evgrieve. Eric's a writer and managing editor who has worked for High Times, Screw Magazine (where he worked closely with and ghostwrote for the infamous NY pornographer Al Goldstein) and Penthouse forum. He also developed a close friendship with Linda Lovelace, the former porn star of Deep Throat, and wrote The Complete Linda Lovelace.
To say he has a fascinating life story is a severe understatement.

Read Part 2: About the demise of Screw and troubles of Al Goldstein, what working with pornstars is like, working for Penthouse, and his relationship with Linda Lovelance.
