Samantha Spektor

Samatha Spektor was a character I created a few months back for one of my dress revamps on 365 Days of Thrift.  Ruth Chapa and I took her for a spin last week in front of the camera and it was such a unique shoot. As opposed to traditional “modeling” we would just set up the basic shot and then I would just- BE Samatha which in this case- was mostly just reading some incredible poetry I found from the book: These Are Not Sweet Girls, which I liked so much I bought a copy on Amazon. I loved it because it felt like we got to capture private and personal moments of a human that you would never otherwise see.

I loved Ruth’s take on the shoot: “I came home and told my boyfriend how you were in character for most of the shoot- and he said, “well did she tell you she was going to do this? what if that was just her?”  I told him- I have shot with Elisabeth before and I can assure that, that was not her.  It’s funny.  We never discussed this.  You just did, and i just watched.  No questions asked.  Because it made sense.  Because I knew I was watching Samantha, and I couldn’t look away.  Fascinating experience.  I couldn’t explain this to him then, because I had just gotten home and I honestly hadn’t processed what i had just experienced.”

I’m looking forward to moving forward into more
