So, what would you do if you were waiting for a reply from a clothing company, and that depending on that reply, you may not have a photoshoot?... you make your own clothes, dude.
Inspired by another love, I "created" a clothing company (Garage Goons), started some designs inspired by Brazilian Jiujitsu/MMA, and old school tattoos, my good friend, and amazing designer, Calaca took the ideas and ran with them (which is as good argument as any for having a good team of talented people surrounding and inspiring you), and my beautiful and talented sister in law, Nissi, to do some logos for the front of the tshirt, printed some shirts, and got Christian and Kat to come over the home studio and model for me (which it is a good argument for having good looking friends to put in front of the lenses when you're in a pickle).
Time was limited (both Chris and Kat had to get back to do some work for their own company, UTQ), but the setup was simple, an edge light, a back light (both bare), and a big octa as the key light, high and looking down on an angle, and post processing with a film look, I wanted to get some images that could potentially be used in a "catalog" style presentation.
All in all, a quick and dirty setup that netted me a couple of usable images, but I feel the most important part was learning that you can't keep waiting for others to do your personal projects, you need to GOYA (Get Off Your Ass), and find solutions.
EDIT: two quick stories, I've also shot a couple of portraits of Chris and Kat, in medium format film, and being the professional that I am, I'm pretty sure I forgot to load new film on the darn camera; And, BTW, I'm still waiting for the other company to contact me back.... so, yeah... GOYA and shoot.
