(From Apprentice Heidi) Photoshoot Whursday

This week's Whursday (a blurring of Wednesday and Thursday) we planned to do a photo shoot to update the t-shirt section of the website. First we scouted out some locations. Jon had a stroke of genius, suggesting the roof. So we took a little trip up to check it out.

The view was beautiful; a little Mary Poppinsesque.

Out to the West you could see the Library of Congress and the Capitol.

Even the intersection looked pretty cool. Only problem was that it was about twenty degrees and dropping as we approached the later hours of the night. So we took a field trip out to G Street fabrics to find a backdrop.

Jon had fun fondling the fabric. I didn't mock because I knew the next stop was the craft store in which I would surely be fondling some yarn.

So we tried out a few to see what would photograph well and got our model juices flowing.

I fell in love with this one.

Work it. Oh yea, I think this one is the winner.

Now that that was decided, it was time to go play with some more fiber.

I'm keeping my lips sealed (or my pixels white?) on this super fun project. It's going to take a while, but it's going to be GOOD!

We filled our stomachs with delicious Peruvian chicken and potato things (oh my god, they're incredible) and finally made our way back to the house to get crackin. 1 Z-rack, 3 florescent lights, 2 pieces of white paper and tape, 2 clamps, some cloth, and a box of firewood became our little photo studio. Here is a sampling of some of the shots...

5:30am : the new Washington, DC shirts! It was a bit challenging to both balance on the firewood (ok, I had a problem clicking the camera, running over, jumping up on the wood and balancing; Jon was the solid tree that I clung on to trying not to fall before the "snap")
