Today was the birthday of the great Harry Houdini. He is one of the more fascinating individuals to have walked this Earth. He was more than just a magician and an escape artist. He was an actor, movie producer, and also did stunt work. I wanted to capture his complete essence for today. I had the filmmaker part covered behind the camera. So I combined everything else by stepping in front of the camera to be the actor. Then I pulled out an old magic trick someone once taught me. But I could’t fit in escape artist. My girlfriend wouldn’t let cameras in the bedroom for handcuffs!
I hope you enjoy the little bit of magic I pulled off with this shot.
