Arabian Nights... Nights... Nights

The past few week have been a whirlwind.  I opened a show every weekend in August, and still somehow found time to do the Hamlet photo shoot.  I'm on empty at the moment, but I really want to push to do the Arabian nights shoot soon.  But there are several issues....

Join me as a share them with you.

1.) Time. I have almost no time.  I am working two jobs and a show starting next week.  That means that sewing has to be done in the wee hours of the morning like I'm some wee elf that cobbles shoes.  I don't mind it all that much, but this does make me a sleepy kitty most of the time and then my work ethic for the rest of my jobs a little tricky. 

(As a subnote to the "Time" heading I have thought about just finding the clothes for this shoot as opposed to sewing them.  But I fear that I may jump the shark, or maybe then I'll do a blog post about where you can buy the clothes after the shoot? I don't know what do you think?)

2.) Complexity.  This shoot requires at least three different locations, maybe more, none of them in the same area.  A HUGE cast.  Massive, and people schedules are never friendly for such things.

3.) Inspiration. Normally I at this point after I pick locations and people I have a super clear idea of the shots I want to get. Not the case this time.  Just having trouble visualizing specifically what I want.  It's just for this shoot though.  I  can see the next two shoots in my head clear as a bell, but this one...

Anyway that's your short update post about where we are on the next project. Shipe out!
