Q: How do you take a long exposure picture with people?

A: Do you know?

Michele Randellis the best "knee photographer / artist" that I know.

Well, she is the best out of one, for I know of no other, LOL!. In any case, she is a truly excellent artist, with that rare ability to make a pair of knees (or, for that matter, most other body parts and photographic subjects) look absolutely beautiful and sensuous, like this image which remains deeply etched in my mind.

-----

I came across this knee photo opportunity recently at, of all places, a gamelan concert. After the performance, this girl sat in front of the instruments and did some real cheesy poses - the sort with her finger pressing into her cheeks - while her beau photographed her.

All this was happening maybe 2 metres in front of me, slightly to my right. I saw her knees and thought immediately of Michele's photos.

I stole three quick shots, but did not have time to think and get a "correct" exposure; the main lights having been switched off as the performance had ended. Happily, the under-exposure works well in this case.

----

So this one is for you, Michele - your inspiration to me, my tribute to you.
