I came to realize, that I spend too much of my time online in social networks while other things important to me got too little of my tme. So I'm radically cutting back on my time spent here (and even more in other forums).
So thanks for all the good things I got from here. Sorry to disappoint some of you, but I will post new work from time to time (but less) ...
All the best wishes, Andi
OK, I got my new studio up and running for some time. Started to shoot a lot. But very mixed reactions with my local models (the semi-pro or amateur ones).
A few are really great, but most of them annoy me greatly. For most of them, their view of their abilities/value differs greatly from their actual capabilities - starting with communications. I might understand it, if they declare to shoot only for fun, but most of them think they are "models".
I'm pretty clear in who I am and what I want to shoot (I've been a quite successful businessman in marketing/mgmt the last 20+ yrs). Getting a meaningful answer/agreement in less than 10 e-mails i
Today I looked at a prospective new studio for myself and really liked it. If everything works out OK, I will soon have my own studio again. With summer fleeting, I need an indoor location. Also something to store my props/things-for-photography.
And then be prepared for a flood of new pictures starting in November :-)
Du hast eine sehr schöne Gallerie - und was mich vor allem begeistert: Die Damen haben eine Schönheit, Natürlichkeit und "Würde", die ich bei vielen Nacktfotografien vermisse, die einem hier so über den Weg laufen. Man merkt deutlich, dass es sich um Photos handelt - aber sie haben eine gewisse Ästhetik, die meiner Meinung nach auch vom Können des Photografen spricht.
