The colors and the light are amazing. (And all I can think is how you kept your camera out of the mess.)

fantastic photos as usual. this reminds me of jouvert, which happens during carnival season, except we use paint, not powder. i'm actually trying to figure out if a plastic bag will suffice when i take my camera to jouvert next wkend.

The Camera: My buddy Craig Dilger is a genius. He rigged it up for me. He took a two gallon clear plastic zip loc bag. The kind with the big plastic runner thing that closes it and put the camera inside there and taped the closure shut in the middle, sealing off the corners where the camera straps came out. Then he made two small holes for the lens and the eye cup and stretched the plastic over, then taped the holes down. Hope that makes sense. It worked perfectly, the only thing you had to remember was to wipe off your lens periodically. This wouldn't work as well with a point and shoot, you kinda need something with a protruding lens. But either way, clear plastic seems to be the way to go.

Hi Mike,

There are a few images I'd like to buy from this shoot. Do you sell any of these digitally?

Thanks
Baden

Baden,

Yeah, randomly this is one of a few shoots from back then that I just shot for myself and own the rights. Best thing to do would be to let me know which ones and what they're needed for personal, publication, etc. and then we can work something out.

you can email me at mike@miketerryphoto.com
