I just like seeing them Charles, even if you did not have the time to do the pull back. That is so nicely done!
Things are fine here. Hope all is well with you too!
Had a group of ballerinas in and this one family has been coming for about 5 years. She is up to three children and I could not pass up doing a fun shot when I saw the expression the little one was doing. They are all gorgeous children. Two kickers one of each side of the bkg and a big 5ft umbrella with a diffuser on it.
Charles that is too cute!
:One from today. You don't always need a big light. The main is a small 16 in softbox, a light skimmed across the bkg and a kicker to add a highlight. Don't mind the home made light grid.
That is a nice to get such good imagery with smaller lights Charles.
Love the young mans smile and how he has his phone! Very natural these days!
Thank you. It's all about getting as close as possible with your lighting.

Concept - Have fun and experiment. My friend is game for almost anything , so I stuck him in a wedding dress and rigged him up to the mains. We did this crazy bizaar photo shoot , I wrapped rope around his head and got him to move his head , slightly longer shutter .. and this surreal scene was able to be produced. I am not conventional , , straight lins and coloring in between the lines is not what i enjoy. To be able to use a few lights , a few props , some imagination .
Well , I like it loads , and I do realise its not everyones cup of tea
Allow me to have one delusion , A delusion of total devoted unwavering faith in my works , the wisdom to know what to take from criticisms to improve my art , and also when to stop irritating those big photographers whose egos are so big , you need a wide angle lens
I do like it as it is unique and well done. Some of us will have to steal the idea if that's ok with you. Thanks for posting.
if i may show ou how the photo evolvd
this was the start , blindfold ed figure peering out the darkness.. yes the irony was noted
ese three photos are self portraits. took some pr
actice , a few missed unfocused shots , but came out better than i thought
almost a year to the day , i was donated a wedding dress... so i started to play

I used the same rope around the head trick , an started to use fairy lights to almost juxtapose two opposite feelings , one of errieness and one of happiness (color) the wedding dress and using a male model giving it more of an edge . i played wth a few hoods , pray hoods , and settled for rope. in hindsite , thinner rope
