Photographic faux pas??

well the last few weeks have found me getting more and more into themed model shoots, unfortunately this has led into one or two erm......" situations" the first one being in a disused mill on a "lingerie" shoot and having the security guard finding us, setting his rotty on us ( deisel turned out to be the biggest softest rottweiller on the planet) and then deciding that we were shooting "those" type of pictures..............

but the one at the weekend was by far the most bizarre, and one which should really teach me to think before speaking.....

so picture the scene............. there is myself and a very good friend of mine Norm and a model, we are shooting a period shot with 40's style clothing in a vintage railway station, i should maybe point out now that the line is closed until Easter so no harm was done to any model during shooting,

anywayyyyyyyy................ we have done our shots and I get this idea......... why dont we put the model on the lines?.
"yay"!!!! so we get down onto the lines, and spend a while carefully positioning her and the props etc...... climb back onto the platform and click click click we start shooting ............... we stop, stand back and have a rethink leaving Wendy our fearless model on the tracks......

all OK so far??.......... about 20 yards down the track there is a railway bridge.....

next thing i here is Norm saying .." ooops this could be interesting",., I looks up and see two guys walking over the bridge. they stop mid bridge...... and look down. the conversation went thus..............

guy 1.......... " f*%k......... is that real?"

Fiona............"that's not a that its a she and of course she is real!"

Guy 2 takes out mobile phone and starts videoing.......

Guy 1..........."Jesus Christ is she OK"

Fiona ......... "yeah she is fine we have just been shooting her."

it was at this point that i realised that was NOT the right thing to say

Guy 2...... Its OK I have it all on film.......... we will call the police and ambulance"

Norm,,,, waves camera in the air as Wendy sits up and waves and Norm says " not THAT kind of shooting!"

Guy 1. then went on with a mouthful of expletives that I couldn't even spell let alone type but they saw the funny side of it in the end! lol so if any of you come across a video on u tube that looks like it is a woman lying on a train track there is a distinct possibility its us! lol

Re: Photographic faux pas??

That's brilliant, sounds like a comedy sketch show

Would be good if he did video it, I would love to see it on youtube

so no harm was done to any model during shooting
In the dim and distant there were certain models I worked with that I would like to have seen harm done to.

For instance, the young lady, wearing roughly 10,000 worth of jewellery (and this in 1970, mind you) who took it into her head to wander off the set, when no one was looking, to have a little drinkypoos with a friend. Queue large numbers of London bobbies cordoning off half the streets around Richmond Bridge, my boss trying to calm down a frantic art director (and an even more disturbed customer) and me contemplating a life in prison because, needless to say, it was the assistant's fault.

When they did find the person involved, she expressed amazement that anyone should have been disturbed by her absence. At that point, the police superintendent expressed his view of her in terms that added considerably to my education.

Believe me, if that had been the only such incident in my young life, I wouldn't be half as bitter and twisted as I am today.
