03:43 am - on help with photo projects...

Liz with sword
Originally uploaded by chrismaverick.
So I've been doing more and more photography lately. Obviously I have my 365 Days project (available for LJ viewing through the 365mav syndicate -- cheap plug). But I've also been shooting lots of lovely ladies lately. Mostly I've just been attempting to approve my skill and my portfolio, but doing so has given me an idea for a photo project.

And I need your help. Or at least the help of 78 people.

What I would like to do is shoot a tarot deck. Or at least make a photo set representing every card of the tarot. I haven't decided for sure whether every shot would feature a person (for instance, I might want to do something else for the World or the Tower) but I'm certainly going to need people for a great deal of them.

So who wants to model for me? I've asked this before of course, but never with a specific point. Now I kind of have one. I kind of don't want anyone to pose for more than one card, so I really am going to need a lot of people. So whether you've posed for me before or not. Whether you're male or female. Whether you even know me. If you're interested, please comment here and let me know. And hey, if you know someone else who I don't know and you think they'd like to do it, please send them to comment here as well. Its not like I have a shortage of spots.

I'm not specifically planning out who is what card yet (because obviously, I don't have any volunteers), but if you have a specific card you'd like to be (or a few options) feel free to mention that down here as well.

This should be exciting and fun. So does anyone want to help me out?

As long as i can be the hieropant, I am in.

I'm not promising any specific cards just yet, but I'll see what I can do.

I would love to help :)
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: February 9th, 2007 - 03:29 am (Link)
ok... thanx. When I'm ready, there'll be another post or something.

I've never wanted to model, but I've always wanted to be the Page of Cups. :)

you're not the only one who asked for that card, but I'll keep it in mind. I have to see how many people I have before I can start to figure out who is what card.

That is a really cool idea. If you have any need I can volunteer me and/or my 3-year old son (he is very photogenic).
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: February 9th, 2007 - 03:33 am (Link)
yeah, that'd be cool. i was thinking it'd be cool to have kids in there too.
[User Picture]From: akiramich Date: February 8th, 2007 - 02:07 pm (Link)
I would like to participate, provided I can be one of the major arcana. My preference would be the Magician, followed by the Emperor, The Devil, Judgement, Justice, the Hangman, or Death.

not promising any specific cards yet, but noted. Thank you.
[User Picture]From: pyrtolin Date: February 8th, 2007 - 02:17 pm (Link)
I'd be interested.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: February 9th, 2007 - 03:35 am (Link)
cool. thanx.
[User Picture]From: mg4h Date: February 8th, 2007 - 02:23 pm (Link)
Could I be Temperance? That's the card I generally identify with ;)
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: February 9th, 2007 - 03:36 am (Link)
not sure who is going to be what card yet, but I'll see what I can do.

That actually sounds really cool, although it would probably be very difficult for me to participate, given geography. (Well, depending on your timeframe -- I certainly am going to visit Pittsburgh again, but I don't know exactly when...) Also, if you don't have quite enough interest to do the whole deck (at least at first) I would recommend starting with just the Major Arcana.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: February 9th, 2007 - 03:38 am (Link)
the major arcana alone would be way too easy. I like a challenge. Anyway, its going to take quite a while to get through all of them, so yeah, I'll probably still be working on it whenever you get back up here.
[User Picture]From: nemesisn4sa Date: February 8th, 2007 - 02:57 pm (Link)
i'll play. can i be three of swords?
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: February 9th, 2007 - 03:39 am (Link)
dunno who is going to be what card just yet, but yes, I'd be quite happy if you posed for it.
[User Picture]From: redfox Date: February 8th, 2007 - 03:08 pm (Link)
If I ever come up to visit PA again, I'd love to...warning, I'm not extremely photogenic however.
[User Picture]From: princessdiablo Date: February 8th, 2007 - 04:17 pm (Link)


Mav has a way of making everyone photogenic.

With that said, I'd be in if this project is going to take awhile. I think the next time I'll be up there is for 4oJ. The only of the major that I really fit is Death or the Tower, with maybe er, I don't know. In the minor, I see myself more in the sword area, with likely the two of swords being the most apt.

This should be a great project. I look forward to seeing updates.

I may be persuadable.

I would have to think of what card I would want to be. I'm sorta leaning toawrds The Magician.

cool... you'll have to actually visit pgh, you know.

Do you already have a Fool? Because I'm told I'm excellently qualified.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: February 9th, 2007 - 03:52 am (Link)
I don't have anything yet. I'm trying to make sure I see who all the volunteers are first.
[User Picture]From: sleepypi7 Date: February 8th, 2007 - 05:07 pm (Link)
I'd love to. Dunno which card, or whatever, but I'm interested.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: February 9th, 2007 - 03:53 am (Link)
cool... Thank you.

I'd be up for it, if you're still taking photos next time I'm in Pittsburgh, which probably won't be until July (though its possible I'll show up for Carnival if I find cheap tickets). I even have a good idea for the King or Knight of Wands...
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: February 9th, 2007 - 03:59 am (Link)
cool. I'm not sure who's going to be what card, but I'm sure it'll take me a long time to do the entire thing, so I'll certainly still be working on it by 4oJ.
