For a few seconds after I saw the title I was tempted to say, "Pull out another one." Thinking, if I use something off this set of negatives it's going to be boring, crappy, stupid, uncreative, lousy photograph. Then I thought, if I do that I will be a liar. Note: I dislike liars almost as much as people who hurt children or animals.
So here I am, sticking with the plans, pulling out the negs and putting them in the scanner to make a contact sheet. Then I looked through the contact sheets (there were six strips and the scanner can do four at a time) praying for something that was somewhat interesting. Just one frame, please.
In my estimation, the first frame was pretty awesome but I set that one aside for a moment because it was that first frame that's snapped off in order to get to a clean frame of film. And then a couple of strips over I found this frame that I really liked.
Before I add that photograph into this post I will tell you what this job entailed. The "RCA" was the record company I was shooting for. "Denver" is John Denver, another reason I didn't want to use it because he was in my first post of the year. And "Windows" was the job. Yes, I was shooting the windows and inside a record store (remember those?) of John Denver's album displays that were installed because he was going to be playing in Vancouver and receiving a Canadian Gold (maybe it was Platinum) record backstage after the concert.
This is one of the window display shots that I did. The one I really like. I trust you will figure out why I like so much, so I won't go into it here - going back to that "a picture is worth..." thing.
