Have you ever wanted to simply control the world? Or even your world? As a photographer, you sometimes get to do that. You make the decisions. If you are fortunate enough to work with models, you get to make decision about them, too - at least for the purposes of your artistic vision.
For the past several months, I have been using myself as a model. Complete control! As much as it would be great to have a group of friends who are at my artistic beck and call, sadly, not the case. And so, I turn to other models.
ETSY has enabled me. I got a bag full of miniature plastic figures (they appear to have been produced on a 3D printer). And now, the fun begins!
Other sources include my good old TV and Macro lens. I hope to find other model sources...stay tuned! I hope you enjoy the photographic theater.
