I'm having one of those lazy Fridays again, where conducting McGoogle searches on "Giant Gummi Bears" is infinitely more rewarding than pushing my pencil. Productivity rating: ZERO.
IN JOBS FROM MY PAST:
I shot this photo in 2005 as part of a Nerve.com photo contest where the theme was "Sexiest use of Post-it Notes". Nerve selected the image for a banner ad to promote the contest. Strangely enough, I think it applies to "One Hundred Jobs"*:
*as in entry-level jobs I will not do for $100. Click to enlarge.
I used to love entering Nerve's amateur photo contest, because I had the chance to artistically direct my own photo shoot based on a simple suggestion like "sexiest photo of someone holding an umbrella." I'd delight in coming up with a creative approach to the theme, assembling the props, dolling myself up, setting my camera on auto timer, and snapping away. It was also great practise for my Photoshopping skills and foreshadowed my passion for modeling and fashion photography.
Much to me and my 2.1 megapixel cam's chagrin, I never wound up winning any money, but I did receive at least three honourable mentions.
Alas, it appears that Nerve.com no longer holds the photo contests so my sexy self-portraits are lost to the sands of time...
Feel free to console yourself with this useful chart:
Enjoy your evening, Gummi-style,
