    Re: Nude

    The amount of disrespect and not understanding the difficulty and method of working with large format and models just astounds me in this forum. You think you're being funny or clever but honestly it's really insulting and not at all a constructive critique.

    Most here do work for fun and retirement but some of us ... this is our lives and our work, and the dismissive nature of the comments just shows the kind of lack of respect for your fellow photographers (with actual talent) and the true lack of understanding you have for the craft. Shame on you. Go shoot some modeling on 8x10 and then come back and show YOUR work and if you're going to criticize, be constructive about it, don't use mockery to hide your inability to truly form helpful thoughts that might aid someone in improvement.

    Re: Nude

    I in no way meant any disrespect from my comment. It's a lovely photo, and I hope you can see from what I post that I have the utmost respect.

    Hope you were referring to a previous comment, but in either case I will withdraw mine even though the intention was otherwise...

    Try putting a couple of teaspoons of concrete in your coffee tomorrow morning. It might help you to harden up.

    It was an innocuous comment. No more disrespectful than you referring to him as "Dude".

    Oh, and by the way, I found the comment both funny AND clever. Especially when I took the time to look through the photos posted in this thread (yeah, I threw myself on that grenade in the pursuit of research) and noticing many do have a je ne sais quoi of bored indifference.

    I look on this picture thread with ENVY!! Beautiful pictures. The pix may not be for everyone but that is life. I read the stuff that appears online with a large boulder of salt. I avoid email for the same simple reason. I cannot hear the intonations of voices nor can I see the whites of the eyes of whom I am talking with. The lack of immediate response can lead one to erroneous conclusions. So, I read and contemplate. Yes, I am an old pharte that love discussions to learn and tend to analyze pictures to looking for a message or meaning. I do not like everything I see, BUT I can appreciate the technical aspects of getting the print just right, and how the nerves of the photographer will be ramped up due to waiting for a critique. Not everything is as it appears in text. Now I give you back to your regular programming, singing "kumbaya ...."

    That has to be one of the best, most insightful posts I've read. Typing is a poor substitute for real interpersonal relationships...

    Re: Nude

    I think it should be an automatic three week ban for anyone that bitches or engages in the bitching that happens in this thread.

    I'm totally open to copping that ban myself for putting that idea out there


    edit: Also, I'm having a really hard time finding models to pose nude where I live. I don't know if it's the local culture or demographic. I've put out many fliers and messages on facebook in models groups and just seem to get no bites.. tried art schools and the rest of it... no luck. How do you do it?

    Thanks everyone!

    Thanks! It's 4x5 astia with a 21cm Heliar. The scanning was a bit botched by scanner guessing colors, I need to do it again.

    As for the "sedated or just depressed" comment, I'd suggest the poster tries to shoot with some good models to see- They will try to keep straight faces throughout the shoot because laughing looks rarely good on photos due to wrinkles and due to the fact that laughing is very dynamic - if you freeze it it rarely looks natural. In fact, if you shoot with an inexperienced friend or a inexperienced model, a good chunk of the shoot is waiting until everyone stops laughing.

    Focus on the 1%
    I only photograph my girlfriend nude btw. She happens to be gorgeous (I shouldn't say otherwise, but fortunately, most people agree with me on this ) and she's the only model I need. I prefer to shoot nudes of someone I really connect with over 'random' people. Our nudes are really something we do together and they're a beautiful experience to make.
