Raven and Nick at the Abandoned Campground in Roswell

Cabin Fever : An idiomatic term for a claustrophobic reaction that takes place when a person or group is isolated and/or shut in, in a small space, with nothing to do, for an extended period (as in a simple country vacation cottage during a long rain or snow). Symptoms include restlessness, irritability, irrational frustration with everyday objects, forgetfulness, laughter, excessive sleeping, distrust of anyone they are with, and an urge to go outside even in the rain, snow or dark.

Hello again Internet. I've been very very busy this week, what with being all snowed in and nearly perishing at the hands of hormonal enraged teenagers suffering from extreme cabin fever. Fearing for my life, I locked the door and hid in my office with only some granola bars and a bottle of diet coke to subsist on (nah, not really.. about the granola bars.. we ate mountains of beans and rice.. see the last post). However, I'm finally starting to make a dent in the long list of things that got postponed to work on the office renovation.

You've already seen a couple of these photos of Raven and Nick, more if you visited my intern blog, since Raven is a fellow intern. Raven wanted some photos of herself and her beau, Nick, that she hadn't taken herself by duct taping her camera to a stick and banging it against a tree to press the shutter, so she asked for volunteers.. not to get banged against a tree.. to take her photos.. (what are you thinking?). Anyway, I volunteered to make their portrait, cause they are really cool people and I thought it would be an adventure to make a portrait of another portrait artist. I was right too! We had a great time running around the abandoned camp ground trying out ideas and concepts. I'll admit, I was a bit nervous, because both Raven and Nick are excellent photographers (see their website here), but they were so fun to play with that I forgot to be nervous until the ride home.. which is always my least favorite part of a shoot anyway, what with all the time to sit there and think of all the cool things I didn't do and so on. But that always leads to the best part of the whole experience, which is getting the photos finished and giving them to the client so they can see how awesome they look! Hey! That's this part! Check out how awesome Raven and Nick look in these cool photos!
