Hello, This is My first Post in the PHOTOSECTION, IŽll post some Photos mainly portraits of people,
In the first one...she looks like she's going to kill me. In the second one she looks kind of high...haha. Not bad quality though :] I like.
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
thanx you guys, The depth of field was intendet,
The girl is a semi famous german actress who asked me if I could do somthing against her CUTE IMAGE, the always plays cute and nice charakters in film and theater, so I turned her into someboby not quite so nice.
Here is another one
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.
i think you acheived your goal with these photos.
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.
Another woman, again in neon light and a little bit of bulb on the second.
Polaroid type 55 and 655
This time a profesional male model who asked me for some not so pretty pictures for his portfolio
first off the first and last pictures kick ass!! and second tell me everything from what camera you use to lighting hehe!
THE MANCHESTER HIGH SCHOOL/MINISTRY OF HEALTH HIV/AIDS MURAL
I take pics too
THE SPECIAL AID BOOK( my sketchbbook duh)
"The greatest works of art still are and will always be by the masters of the old"
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)
now more images
most of these look gorgious from what I have seen... and I couldn't see everything because you posted huuuuge...!
Please resize 'em down to about 800 px width...
thanx mr hu, sorry about the size, but iŽm a bit spoiled by my screen,
iŽll post more but in smaller size, keep on checking my thread, thereŽl be more tomorow.
all the best and thanks again.
great shots. what is your weapon of choice?
i like the dark background, what do you use? just a drop sheet? how is it lit?
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.

one Portrait for fun, what do you think
"Tears will drown in the wake of delight"
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.
HAPPY NU YEAR TO EVERYONE.
about this pic. 6x6 Agfa APX 100 (the best BW film ever)
slightly collored in photoshop.
shot on a 59Ž Rolleiflex camera (The best middleformat camera ever)
all the best for 2008
and another portrait. again on Kodak vs 100 60mm film
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.
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,
