May I be the first to say if one doesn't have a smart phone and works shifts in retail.. it's hard to organize shoots..
makeup and everything will be done by me.. hmm some vasaline and hd primer.. and some water in the hair , we're good to go.. only downside the weather in sf this week has sucked... Cold!!! icy cold! So I'm planning a fall inspired, punk shoot.. hopefully the stands and sand bags will hold to the wind

I just love this girl, while walking down haight street I ran into her.. She works there, Marjorie.. this girl needs to get her confidence up.. she looks so timid in person.. but the face is to die for! Going to be asking her for a shoot .. for sure..

Whether photographing politicians, artists, writers, fashion models, or movie stars, Richard Avedon revolutionized the genre of portraiture. He rejected conventional stiff-and-staid poses and instead captured both motion and emotion in the faces of his subjects, often encapsulating their intrigue in a single charged moment. SFMOMA is proud to be the only U.S. venue for this retrospective that spans the artist's remarkable career. Featuring more than 200 photographs along with a selection of vintage magazines, the exhibition presents work spanning Avedon's entire career, from his earliest street scenes to his breakthrough 1950s Paris fashion pictures and the iconic celebrity portraits that brought him world renown. This in-depth retrospective reveals Avedon's singular ability to blur the lines between photojournalism, fashion photography, and fine art.
