So. Ed told me he had this costume, and a big huge cigar for me to smoke… and asked me if I’d be into the idea for a portrait. What?! I didn’t even have to think twice! It was just silly enough, and just weird enough for my likings. Good things happen when you combine silly and weird.
We were all busy shooting that day at the Linda Vista Hospital, but towards the end we stepped into this run down kitchen, he set up his strobe (more info on his blog), then told me to light up! The only problem was nothing to cut the end off. So like the real Reno girl I am, ripped it off with my teeth and spit it out. The shoot will go on!
There’s a couple out-takes on his blog, too.
