Boy that water splashing off the waterfall looks good. She was getting wet while we were shooting this one. I wouldn’t mind lying there where Char Rose is lying, except that there would be a long hot hike and some climbing and scrambling over rocks required to get there. Like most of the middle of the US, we are having a heat wave. A really nasty heat wave. I’ve decided to treat it the same way I would a major blizzard in the winter: Just stay inside until it is over. I’m so happy we have air conditioning.
My son-in-law had a large air conditioning unit that he wasn’t using, so I borrowed it and installed it at the studio. Now it is significantly cooler inside the studio than outside. Once this heat wave passes I suspect that we will be able to maintain a normal room temperature in the studio. For now it is at least a lot cooler. So I just need to set up some studio shooting to pass the time until the weather gets better. The forecast has this hellacious weather extending out for the coming week, so I don’t know when I’ll get back to working outdoors. Not until it cools down to a more reasonable temperature.
Char did a great job working around that waterfall, getting into difficult spots and doing perfect poses. Still more from this shoot to come.
