Model on Melrose 1
This image was taken around 1990, on Melrose Ave. in Hollywood, for Swanenfield’s. Can’t remember the model’s name. She auditioned for my band, The Soul Twisters, and wasn’t a perfect fit stylistically, but I got her this modeling job. All the exposure info is on an exposure sheet somewhere, which would most likely take a 1/2 day to find. That’s why I relied on the old photographer’s saying, “f/16 and be there” which was pretty much my mantra back then. Their budget was tight for this job so I talked them into letting me do the layout for the catalog on my Mac Plus with Aldus Pagemaker that I bought in 1986 (the year desktop publishing was born). It was my first commercial computer job other than making band flyers.
I am putting together this blog post on a Mac Pro Quad, with 16GB RAM. Probably a thousand times faster than a Mac Plus!
