[Model Shoot] Cory – The Graveyard Series (8.14.09)

Posted in 2009, black and white, Digital, model shoot, Photo Post by William Patrick Butler on September 6, 2009

this photoshoot was 12 years in the making.

Cory is one of my closest friends and in the 12 years of our friendship she’s never let me really photograph her before (something about how she wouldn’t look good modeling or something.  i’m not sure.  whatever it was, it wasn’t true)

well, it seems like, if you keep asking someone to do a photoshoot every other month for 12 years they’ll actually give in, sooner or later 😉

so, i knew that i wanted to do something different with Cory than what i’ve been doing with my other friends.

and knowing Cory for all these years i know what she likes and doesn’t like.

doesn’t like: cute “girly” photos

does like: spooky, gothic photos

so, knowing that, i knew where we had to go and when we had to do it.

the where?: Dean’s Stand, an historical site located on the Natchez Trace

the when?: the onset of twilight on a slighty overcast day

let’s do this.

The dead are all around us and they outnumber the living.

Walking between us…

existing among us…

just out of sight…

always out of sight.

That shiver you feel in that empty hallway.

That flicker out the corner of your eye.

That feeling you get…

when the rain is falling and the lightning is flashing and the thunder is rolling…

and you know…

And sometimes it scares you.

It should scare you.

Because people are human, even in death.

And humans are bastards.
