Goddamn, I really love the first one!

and the shitted up colors don't bother me at all with these.

Is nice!
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

Wow, and didn't you say you thought you would just stick with old men around where you live?

It's fashiony (or I can only assume such since you haven't talked about it) and the sunset/glare is kind of lame in theory, this definitely shows some technical mastery. Seriously, good use of a flash/lighting set-up. When I first started using artificial lighting I tended to use too much, which flattened the image and made everything unnaturally even... good to keep it seemingly from one direction and kind of soft. There's one of those buzzwords that applies to this image, "sculptural", which basically means your image makes it look like it actually exists (as opposed to being just a flat surface). Impressive stuff, man.

I actually have a lot more fun with totally staged photography rather than photojournalistic photography. How do you feel about it?

thanks dude. this was one of the pictures i used for my final portfolio in lighting class. i got the idea (taking the sky orange and all that) while i was failing horribly at my fashion assignment. through this lighting class i've really started to like fashion type stuff and just portraits in general.

i had that same problem of overlighting stuff as well when i started using lights. i'd take a picture and be like, "well there's a shadow here by the nose" and just flatten the fuck out of it. i try not to do that now because it suffocates the picture of any depth it might have. i've been trying lately to do more natural looking light (unless it's like the last picture i posted which is obviously set up with lights and all) and give stuff an almost ambient look. here's an example of something i did like that:



it's not a really "wow" type thing but i like it. when i do a more lit picture like the sunset thing i like to go more over the top with it.

but i definitely have a better time with this staged type photography. i like not having the worry about disrupting the moment or whatever. just get an idea and do it.

do you have any photo sites you think i should check out?

edit: thanks matt

As I said on Facebook, those are all really damned good.  I think I also said that I'm half-white with hearty thumbs.

These are pretty damned great.  I wish I could find someone here that could take photos like these for my troupe.

Very good work. Do you use any directions to the people when you do portraits? And where in the u.s. was these pics shot?
