Even though I don’t mind doing portrait work, being an odd fellow I really like shooting mannequins, as I have explained in a previous post. This one was at the Lucketts Store in one of the main rooms high upon a shelf. She was only the upper torso with no arms wearing a cowboy shirt and rocking this fire red wig. I actually had an Idea of glamming this shot up a bit in post, as you would do in a typical super model cover shot. But then I thought hey Lionel, this is a down to earth cowgirl, not some superficial model, and she likes to keep it real. From the look of that crazy hair and scratches on her chin and nose, she must have been tossed off her horse. And in these parts, it doesn’t get more real than that.
