The Sprockettes, like you’ve never seen them before

Last week I had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot for the beautiful and talented mini-bike dance troupe, The Sprockettes. During the shoot, someone suggested forming the letter “S” with their bodies.

That went so well, I figured what the heck, let’s go all the way. Here’s the result (I like how their arms look like links in a chain):

I really really like this shot. In fact take it a bit further have the picture made into a print… a print/poster what ever. Not that it isn\’t a great shot already but have them do it again, have them do a real bang up job then shoot it and turn it into a print. No doubt since they have so much support in Portland you could sell many there but you would also have people like me who have seen them but are not local who would buy it. In fact I\’d hang it framed on my dining room wall so I could see it while I eat my yummy dinner. Think about it.

Toodles,

thanks Mike. that\’s an interesting idea. the above is actually just a quick-and-dirty version. I plan to clean it up, do some cropping, and make it look much better for the final image.

I\’ll have to think about the poster idea…

Looks like a bang-up job to me. I just don\’t see any bicycles, bicycle parts, or anything much suggestive of bicycles in the shot, which doesn\’t make a lot of sense, sorry. Unless of course, name familiarity of the Sprockettes with bicycles is sufficient in your view.

I find it quite disturbing on Freudian proportions that looking at my friends in the sprockettes makes people hungry for pasta. Warn them Jonathan, warn them of the cannibals in the bushes.
