From my first "official" fashion shoot, produced by Amanda Callas. Images from the shoot will be featured on her fashion blog.

I'm curious to see how this image does. Perhaps she is not "extreme" enough for this challenge. I'm certain there will be some very interesting manipulations, but I find Arlene to be so androgynous and unique as she is, that I hope people will think it's been "expertly" manipulated to create the illusion. I did try some effects on her but they ended up making her look more "normal"!!! I DID change her eye color - a detail I thought added a bit of oddness.

Arlene is 6 feet tall in bare feet and pretty much filled my studio. If she and Sal ever got together, their kids would be monoliths.
