When the opportunity arises take advantage of it.
My studio is located in a eclectic group of businesses, such as: music school, antique stores, sushi restaurant, spa, and Starbucks.I noticed the other day at the back of my studio, there was a spa tub that was being replaced. I asked the owners what were they going to do with the old spa tub. They said, "Nothing, did you want to use it?" I replied, "Yes I'd love to use it as a prop." Now I have no idea of what in the world I'm going to go do with a spa. Being an imaginative person, I felt that I can create something with it.
So after heaving, moving, and pushing stuff out of the way, I had the spa centered in my studio. Now the thing was...what do I do with it? So my first thought came up as the spa looked as it was abandoned, it would perhaps suit a concept of being dumped on some wasteland. I also had the opportunity at the last minute to work with Linda C, a very pretty Asian model. She agreed to come in and get wet and soapy in my spa.
So the idea was to have her taken a bath and washing her hair using a watering can as a shower. I have no reason as to why I did this, but I absolutely loved the creative process of bringing the idea and model together.
