Critiques


Alright. Now I've become entrapped by a really beautiful image, and I have to give it a proper critique of my own. First off, I'm going...


You're coming along nicely with the photography! As you know, I have a place in my heart for people who can successfully pull of self-p...


There are actually two things about this one, but they're both related. The first is a lack of color. The second is that it's very over...

I'm asking the wrong audience, because most of you already agree with me, but I'd like to see the question go viral. Basic nudity (not explicity sexual in its nature):

I do . . . stuff. I like to create things. I used to draw, but now I mainly do photography. I photograph any subject that catches my fancy. Lately, I've been focused on fine art nudes. But that's not all I do with a camera. I'd actually like to make a living with a camera, but we'll see how it goes. I might be a sculptor, tomorrow, for all I know.

If you're not familiar with me (which I suspect is the case if you're reading this), I absolutely LOATHE the DeviantArt watermark. On principle, I don't fave or comment on any deviation that uses it. It's the only way I know how to protest against it.

I've been waiting to talk about this one.  I showed a recent picture that I shared to a co-worker who doesn't follow me here.

He asked me how I met Stevie.  I saw her first on DA, and then found her on Model Mayhem.  He asked me, "You pay her?"

Yes.  She's a traveling model.  He was thinking of my friend, Cassandra, who will sometimes ask me to do a shoot.  She lives in town.  She doesn't even need to buy gas.  I'll go pick her up. We can share a beer and pizza later.  Traveling models, on the other hand, have expenses, not the least of which is gasoline.  It's their profession.

My co-worker then said, "But can't you get your friend to do this?"

Again, he's thinking of Sandy.  I said, "Dude, that's a naked woman standing on her head in my living room.  How many friends do you think I have?"

The irony is that I'm a nudist, and I do have friends that are not averse to shedding their dons in social company.  The models, including my dear friend, are not them.  I do not have many friends that either can or will disrobe and invert themselves.  Cassandra might be able to.  She's fairly athletic.  I can't say with any certainty that she would.  Artistic nude models are not necessarily exhibitionists(nor are nudists, for that matter).  They're interested in art, not views.

So, yeah.  For a woman who travels quite a bit to do this, that is her job.  Wouldn't you expect some compensation?

Just to be clear, none of these models are my girlfriend or wife.
Whoops.  For anyone wanting to know why I updated that one, it's because I forgot to change the file name to the title.  I'm not uploading these in the order we shot them.
Stevie did wear something different in this set.  I only have a few of these, though.

Thanks Eric, exact I've been on Instagram this week rekindling some of my stories with DownEast magazine who I actually used to photograph for in the 1970s and we found an issue or I did a centerpiece on old toys of Christmas from the 1800s all shot with a 4x5 Sinar camera , right as I was screwing the tripod on to the rail of the bottom of the 4x5 camera, the tripod screw snapped and I had to tape a 4 by 5 View Camera,, to the tripod with that silver pipe and duct tape I sweat bullets through that whole job but we got it done everything was shot ektachrome transparency I only bring that up because I did this picture for them also years ago and then I did some freelancing for them for a couple of years
