Tender Meat

It’s all so easy now,
The truth lay bare
Thrust out in front
For all to see

You wonder how it happened
Your past nailed against a wall
Your soul sliced and gutted
Like a fish in a mongers store
Your trust is buried in the mire
Like cum spat out in a sink
To be flushed like garbage
Into a drain that’s 6 feet deep

You knew that you could trust her
You knew that she was true
You wanted nothing more in life
Except what she offered you

And now, all that is left of you
Lies squirming on the ground
Darkness washes like drifting sand
No light that can be found
And then it all is over
The final gasp of loves retreat
The final cut of what you once had
The abattoirs knife sliced you
Like tender meat.

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 20, 2009, 1:59 PM
Eclipsed-Serendipity - ID by Nigel-Aves

In the last few weeks while I have been active on DA I've discovered some incredible talent but two people whom I've come to respect are both young BUT they have the drive and desire to create cutting edge ART and to push themselves to their artistic limits.

These are my co-conspirators opps I mean Admins in the new group :Eclipsed-Serendipity

Caity-Kitten - Is a writer, her verse is beautifully crafted to make you feel the words. Secondary she's a photographer and editor (and if truth be known a better editor than I am! (just don't tell her I said that :) ).

mzscarecrow1313 - Is a prolific photographer and model. She loves to play with anything that is dripping with blood and gore! How could I not ask her to look after all aspects of the Macabre! Secondary, she's also a wonderful writer and is not scared to say what's on her mind!

Who we are looking for to join this group are those of you that love to "play in the sandbox" of experimentation. We are covering "The Written Word", "The Macabre", "Photography" and "Post Editing". We are looking for active Members and Contributors.

I must warn you that a lot of our work in all areas is 18+ in nature.

Please consider joining this new group Eclipsed-Serendipity Eclipsed-Serendipity - Stamp by Nigel-Aves

So I sit down this morning (Dec 25th 2009), put some more photographs up and here's the number of visitors! I wonder how many 666's there are ....

6666 by Nigel-Aves

------------------------------------------------

Soft Focus Imagining lives in the Denver Area. We are looking for the extreme models who want to push their art forms in different directions.

The principle photographer is Nigel Aves (myself). I have lived in Longmont Colorado since 91. Originally from Hampshire, UK. I am at my happiest when working on photoshoots that are not capturing the normal but exploring the unusual.

I also do the "more normal" photography of portfolio creation or unusual photoshoots that do not fit under any real banner. I also create on-line biographies that you can point prospective clients too.

There's an old adage in software, "if it's not broken, don't fix it". 

So one has to ask, why are you changing an interface, that pretty well everyone who uses this site knows how to, navigate around, find stuff, purchase stuff, look at art etc etc ...? 

The biggest complaint I know of in the current interface is the color. That would have been an easy fix with a few re-designed CSS files, especially as one of them could use a black background. Typically what people like to use to look at photographs. But you could easily have supplied 5 or 6 different color schemes that would probably have satisfied 90% of your user base.

I turned on Eclipse for the first time, tried to use it and was so under-impressed that I turned it off. It's marked as BETA, but in no way is this BETA software, BETA software has all the features that are intended for release "1", and used for full system tests. 

If you ask me, this should not even be turned on for an ALPHA test.

Having been in the software industry my entire working carrier there's one thing that happens that will cause major upsets, and that's changing an interface, especially one that's simple to learn, and actually functions correctly.

And as a closing thought, why do I want my PC to look like a cell phone App?

Keep it simple, keep it clean ... wait a moment, you've already achieved that.

Turn this on full time, I will be leaving. There are lots of sites that accomplish exactly what you have today.    
 
Every picture should tell a story, "don't it". And this one is no exception.

The lighting for this style of photograph is perfectly set, and what is most important is that there is no glare coming off the walls. The lighting also hides a little bit of mystery (:) ) which in this style of photograph is a very good approach. (Of course, having seen a lot of your work, I really do know what you look like, ummm everywhere!)

The pose is perfect, There really is not much more I can say about that. Love the expression in the face, draws you in.

Beautiful model, beautiful photograph. What more can one say.
As is always the case with fine art nudes, a lot of the elegance comes from the positioning of the lights. Here can see good use of lighting off to the models left.

I love the pose that the model struck in this photograph. with the short top, the top being black with the flower embroidery, just works perfectly.

But what of course grabs you is the perfect expression on the face, with the eyes drawing the viewer to concentrate on the face, and in doing so, reading an untold story. And every picture tells a story don't it!.

Beautiful work in front of and behind the camera.
This is one of those photographs that shows the beauty of female, but keeping things within the boundaries of "fine art". (of course having a stunning model helps!)

The lighting is perfect for this style, coming in from the hard right of the model. Wide open aperture to ensure that the background is well out of focus, ensures that the eye is not distracted and drawn to the main portion of the pose.

What strikes me most is the perfect natural expression of the model. She looks a tad lost in some ways, maybe even a little "what the hell am I doing here?" :)

Fine Art captured perfectly by model and photographer.
