I needed to do a High Key portrait for my evening class in studio lighting and my GF suggested that I should ask my friend Elf, (1st Ambassador to the Crystal People of Mars). I did but he said he would probably be up late that night and would need to sleep in the next day. So the following day I left planning to do some simple selfies instead. Well, who do I meet on my way down there? The very same Elf who had decided not to go to bed at all the night before. He was still full of energy and offered to tag along for a few portraits. So for once things turned out pretty good. I don’t normally ask people to do me favors like this at all but I know that Elf is always interested in participating in creative projects. Lucky for me.
