Dark Corner Productions Photoshoot

Several weeks ago I got to participate in my first bona-fide photoshoot!  Marcus, who runs Dark Corner Productions and Horror Junkies of Utah approached me with the idea and I was 100% sold.  It's no secret I've got a Gothic streak in me a mile wide, just ask anyone from high school (haha.)  Marcus specializes in anything dark and spooky, and he was looking to do a series based on women from the badass American Horror Story series.  If you watched the first season, you know the hot redheaded maid who seduces the boss and cleans up his "messes"? Yeaaaah.  She's the best. So I told Marcus yes so fast my head spun.

Actually the way I met Marcus was pretty funny--it was during my first car show last year.  It was around Halloween time and had a bit of a creepy/dressup theme, and that creep was walking around as Michael Myers, mask and knife and all.  Wimpy confession time, I reeeeeeeeally don't like masks. Facepaint is fine, horror/SFX makeup is fine, or just a regular old scary face is fine, but I get really unnerved at masks.  So of course Marcus did a great job of terrifying me whenever he walked by.  I wonder if he meets other people similarly?  First time we met I was wincing away in horror, second time we met I was in fishnet and cleaning up fake blood from his bathtub.  Haha.

Anyway, I don't have any sage wisdom for you about photoshoots since this was my first one.  I learned that holy cow, these things are hard work!  Not that I disbelieved (I've seen America's Next Top Model as much as the next girl) but I was sore afterward, especially in my core area, from holding poses.

If you want to see more photos from the shoot (I've left Marcus's watermark on them here) and more of his awesome work--this is a recent favorite of mine-- head over to his DeviantArt page.

Thank you Marcus for the opportunity and I'm sure I'll see you again soon! Hopefully without the mask....
