    wow. very interesting shots. its a heaps nice style with this sort of quirkiness added to it. i like your use of depth of field. I'm not sure if you were going for it intentionally or not... but she looks a little cold in the second one.

    very cool shots

    nice shots, I like the color-temperature and the dof on the first shots. But I somehow wish both eyes on the last picture to be in focus, cus' for me it's the left eye that mainly shows me her look and expression.

    I dunno if your done with this session or going to do more portraits of her, if so happens maybe an angle from downwards and up would give her even more bad and supercilious look. Just thoughts, and still, nice shots.

    thanx again,
    now two more.
    A thing that really boosted the shooting was the fact that she is an actress,
    she instantly came into the mood and nailed down the look, all I had to do is set the light and do some minor directions.

    BTW the light is entirely done with neon lights, exept for one bulp from the top to give a little bit of orange gloom.

    the polaroids are by far the best things on the page. They have some much character. Great work.

    caution nudity

    thanx very much,
    The light in the collor images is mainly neon light shot on a Kodak dcs pro camera, with the light temperature set on neon, and 250watt halogen bulp for warmtone accentuation.

    The polaroid shot where done on a calumet largeformat camera with a 120mm lens, using a hensel flash set, and manually corrected depth of focus, which is a little time consuming for it takes over 5 minutes to take one picture.

    Here are a few more polaroids, some contain nudity, shot on small format instant film polaroid Polagraph 35mm 400 asa (which sadly enough isnt produced any more)

    thanx,
    Depending on what pictures you refer to , my wheapon of choice differs, my SLR for 35mm film is a Nikon f100, my preferred digital camera is a Kodak DCS Pro SLR both with Sigma or Nikon lenses.
    The trick about the light is simple, just light the foreground and let the backgroung sag into darkness, this next picture is done like that, the foreground has been lit by a flash an the background is just to far away to receive enough light to be lite. the bachground room in this picture was acctually completely lit by daylite.

    these two pictures where shot with a Calumet large format camera on 4by5 inch black and whit film as I recall Agfa APX 100.

    Nice "portrait." I think with some cropping off the top and left and some more space at the bottom and right, it would be better.

    hi Purplerose, heres the fullformat scan of the piranha, It was shot on a Sinar largeformat camera, with a 240mm lens on 4by5 inch Kodak VS film.(all the other fish also)

    I had allready cropped it to work as my company logo, but I see what you mean, along the original a few more iterpretations of my favorite dead pet.

    enjoy

    hi,

    i like your overall style, very nice choice of colors, clothes and model styling. High developed visual culture, i guess.

    i like the background. I am a fan of minimalist nudes. I think I wouldn't mind if the bedsheet was less obviously a bed sheet even, you could go even more minimal with this I think. But it has a clean look, and I like that too. Here're some examples of what I mean:

    I like your abundance in ideas. I think what strikes me most about your photos is the visible thinking process that went on before you even set up your shots (I guess...).

    This last one: The negative space above her absolutely belongs there and is a really nice element in your composition. I don't mind the sheets, but if you wanted to improve on this shot I would say that the light falloff to the right is too strong for me. An unnaturally even light over the complete wall would be better, in my opinion.

    Thanx verry much,

    True I do really think allot about what I do, I donŽt like things to turn out well out of coincidence, IŽd rather plan it well, that way I also know exactly what went wrong if the work doesnŽt satify me.
    But one thing that also carries my Photographic path is the fact that IŽve been a sculptor for allmost twenty years now, and I aproach my Photographic Ideas like they where sculptures, and not try to "preaty up"
    whats there but to show shape and relief expresion.

    This next Photo is also kind of made that way,


    enjoy
