whiplash girlchild no. 39

this album was among the spoils from Jackpot Records in Portland, along with a really keen Velvet Underground bootleg that I presume is the acetate somebody found in a Chelsea garage sale for 75 cents; the version of "Venus in furs" sounds almost like an audition for a hootenanny. anyway, I chose this as my first subejct with my new spread: a light stand, swivel-adapter and umbrella that arrived today.and a hastily hashed-out d.i.y. softbox. after 38 tries I almost got rid of the glare. not pictured is the eureka moment where I move the camera at a higher angle above the subject, finally achieving something like perfect light. but I prefer it when you can see the struggle. I'll work on, like, depth, later.
