I am still looking for models to play the roles of Lucifer, Adam and Eve. I am sealing the roles of Michael and Lilith. those interested in these three parts should contact me individually, the roles of Lilith, Adam and Eve require artistic implied nudes, Michael and Lucifer do not. Information can be found on the Fallen Stars casting call page. Contact me soon.
This is the final set of the images taken with the Lens baby. This was more an experiment than anything. I hadn’t had the opportunity to work with this lens much but ever so wanted to. I debated throughout the day until towards evening I decided to give it a try. There are imperfections as far as the focusing is concerned because lack of use but in the end I believe it adds to the vintage effect. If you’re wondering why one face is in focus and the other may not be, it’s because the depth-of-field is so narrow at 2.0 you might get an inch in focus as long as it all lines up in a straight line. Again I think it plays into the effect. I enjoyed producing these.
The remainder will take some time, maybe a month to complete. I have 300 images to edit and that will take some time. I will notify all participants when they are available, keep checking back here for updates.
Recently I had the privilege to be invited to a shoot by Alaina Mihalko that was in Victorian style held at the Castle Tea Room in Lawrence Kansas, a beautiful venue with great models. I had a great time and have lots of images, it will take me some time to process all but will get them out.
Continuing in my research for my project I have questions on how my readers and viewers will perceive my work. I’d appreciate your response, but knowing some might be disappointed by angels not having wings, I might not get the same turnaround on this question.
We are approaching the halfway point in the campaign and I can still use any support possible. If each of my friends would just pledge $1 I would be done and well on my way to shooting and writing.
Update to Project:
As I continue writing the draft of the story I am constant probing new ideas and possibilities. One is changing the title to: On The Sixth day as the bulk of the story will revolve around the 6th day of Genesis. I’ll keep everyone abreast of any permanent changes, nothing yet decided.
I wanted to pass along information of Fallen Stars. This is my Kick Starter information. I am currently live on Kick Starter looking for supporters who love this style of creativity. I’m currently on Kick Starter to reduce the burden of cost towards this school project and any support would be valuable.
It’s my belief that Genesis was filled with races other than the generally accepted European caucasians. Many historians and geneticists believe the original inhabitants were African. In fact in Genesis verse 8 it states “the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom he had formed.” Eastward from where? My belief is originally man and woman were created in African and transplanted to the garden somewhere in Iraq. Earth originally was Eden and the statement “Garden of Eden” meant a garden of Earth. This would also lead one to believe that Adam and Eve were black and I intend to show this in my work.
Medieval Jewish text also speaks of Adam’s first wife Lilith who leaves the Garden prior to Eve, hence explaining many of the discrepancies concerning Genesis, one being God creating male and female then later creating man, then woman from man’s rib. The connection I believe has been lost or intentionally removed.
There will be twists and turns and new directions in this adaptation of Genesis, largely based off myths and legends from several ancient sources and at times my own imagination to fill gaps of the unexplained. I do not treat this a biblical text but more a fantasy, This book is about the images, the story is to give a narrative to them.
