Model shoot: Craig Scarr / by Neal Auch

I recently did my first model shoot with local talent Craig Scarr; you can have a look at some more images in the newly-added Portraiture page.   I built a bunch of fun props for the shoot, my favourite being the lampshade pictured above, which I painstakingly sewed together out of raw sheep stomachs.  Craig was a great sport about being on set with a lot of raw meat products, especially because the tumbler full of pig blood he was pretending to drink from smelled unbelievably horrible.  Of course, I could have used water and red food colouring and gotten the same effect, but there's something about the authenticity of having real blood on set that just feels right to me.  Enjoy!
