Okay, I have an interesting story about this shoot. Before I get into it, some of you may or may not know that I have a bit of the 6th sense. In other words, I see ghost! It’s not something I like to admit on social media or in general (publicly) but fuck it! I’ve been doing a lot of that lately because why? I’m content with who I am and comfortable sharing certain information with ya’ll and you can choose to believe me or not, that’s on you.
Back to the story, It was raining heavily in San Diego last week. It took me 2 hours to get to City Heights which would normally be 20 minutes without traffic and 30-45 minutes with traffic. I finally get to Erika’s house to shoot this Birthday photos for her. We were unprepared, no props, no flash on the camera (it’s evening time now) so we had to improvised. We left to a near by Walgreens to pick up a disposable camera because it has a built in flash. Erika wasn’t feeling the disposable camera but I told her i’ve shot with it before for Food Porn, she had doubts that these will turn out great. I did too to be honest.
In the middle of the shoot, after we lit the candles we heard a woman’s voice shouting at us. It was distorted and couldn’t make out the words. I thought it was the music, an ad lib in the song. She looked at me crazy and I asked her “what” and she asked me “what was there?” I honestly thought it was from the speaker but she said it wasn’t. We played the song again to see if it was the song but it wasn’t, it was definitely a woman’s voice inside the living room with us. I actually have the photo of Erika the moment we heard the voice as she looked to see where the voice was coming from.
