A semi-spoof on my Fruit & Veg shot. Clearly a very special THANK YOU is in order for my model and main man. He even dealt with the fake eyelashes like a champ! I'm not saying he enjoyed it much but I can say I defintely felt that him letting me do this was a demonstration of true love! : )

Snapped this outside (carefully guarded to ensure no neighbor saw this one!!!). Shot in RAW - RAW conversions. Elements - crop, levels, selective color, hue/sat, USM, neat image, border, save for web.
********************************

Thanks for all the great comments everyone. Such fun! Honestly, I'm a little sorry that I'll have to see this pic "gracing" my profile for some time! But it was fun to shoot...and I'll never let him forget he's a...man? : )

Hi, I'm relatively new here, but even without knowing the "players", this photo cracks me up. Combined with the hilarious caption, it's almost too much to take this early in the morning. Great work from you and your model.

Oh Aimee! This is AWESOME! And boy do you have blackmail bait until the day you die, right??? I wish this was one of your highest rated photos so it would be on your profile page everytime anyone goes there forever. We need Tim to keep a little of that God-given humility, and this one oughta do it, right? :)

Congratulations on an honorable mention! This is PERFECT!

03/21/2007 09:25:13 AM
I had no idea who that was. ROFLMAO. I'm still laughing. Now go watch Christopher Lowell and tell me he doesn't look like his twin brother. Congrats. This really is the funniest thing I've ever seen.

exposure, color and composition are good, but it's a bit predictable
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/20/2007 03:18:19 PM
What an amazing husband you must have that would allow you to dress him up like this and have this image posted for the whole world to see. Wait - did I say amazing? I guess the words amazing and foolish could be interchangeable here. I sure hope for yours and his sake this bad boy ribbons. ;)

#60 - Way to Go Woman!

Winter spelled "Winner," babe. Makeup, expression, accessories, colour and the wonderful way the ribbon and jewelry contrast with both the dark and the skin tones.

03/14/2007 01:25:50 AM
This is about the scariest thing I've seen! lol. The lip liner is a marvelous tough, as well as the very studio feminine pose. Lighting is good but I think I'd like to see less head room on the crop.
