Critiques


Oh, this is certainly a big improvement. The first thing I noticed was more detail due to fewer blown-out highlights (I'm not sure how ...


Alright. Now I've become entrapped by a really beautiful image, and I have to give it a proper critique of my own. First off, I'm going...


You're coming along nicely with the photography! As you know, I have a place in my heart for people who can successfully pull of self-p...

As always, I'm impressed with the talent of the people who watch my little corner of the world. As a token of my appreciation, here's a feature for you.

I do . . . stuff. I like to create things. I used to draw, but now I mainly do photography. I photograph any subject that catches my fancy. Lately, I've been focused on fine art nudes. But that's not all I do with a camera. I'd actually like to make a living with a camera, but we'll see how it goes. I might be a sculptor, tomorrow, for all I know.

If you're not familiar with me (which I suspect is the case if you're reading this), I absolutely LOATHE the DeviantArt watermark. On principle, I don't fave or comment on any deviation that uses it. It's the only way I know how to protest against it.

If you've got a better title for this, I'm open.  I kind of like the title I have, but something's feeling like I'm missing something.  I'm along the lines of "rennaisance", or "re-birth", If you get what I'm going for.

Transcendence by phydeau
Yoga.

I know I'm going to sound like a record stuck in a groove, but guess what?  Naked.  That's what.  I might as well embrace that I'm the bare body guy, here.

Yoga.

It's meant to be done nude.  Save the money on yoga pants.  If anyone asks why you were naked when they knocked on the door, just say you were doing yoga.

Seriously.  Let them deal with it.

Inspired by a new deviant.  Go say hello.

I am still going to make a journal about prominent, well-respected art nude artists.  I haven't forgotten.

But I had a random thought, and it's related.  I might have to incorporate it into my journal.

I'm almost glad that idiots with smartphones are sending dick-pics.

I'm glad because it's normalizing nudity.  Yes, in its most disgusting form, granted, but that's actually a good thing, believe it or not.

Believe it or not, I want people to compare my work to the faceless, feckless, dickless coward-in-the-dirty-bathroom-mirror-under-two-out-of three-working-incandescent-bulbs-fetching fruitlessly-for-a-hook-up with his Blackberry next to my goddess under the bubbles diving gracefully.

But that only works if the goddess doesn't get reported to a robot that finds a nipple.  It takes human eyes to see the difference.

That's not the rant.  It could be.  It's pissing off a lot of good artists.  DA, you really need to get some human eyes on this.  But that's not the rant.

I'm actually not against dick pics.

Let me be VERY VERY OVERTLY DISTINCTLY OBVIOUSLY PRECISELY UNDOUBTEDLTY clear, that I'm not talking about those that are sent privately without consent or solicitation.  That, at the very least, can be a harassment charge, if not a felony.   But in more open forums, buyer beware.  And so long as they don't violate the rules of the forum, go for it.  Your amateurism makes my work seem better.  And I'm not claiming to be God's gift to photography, so . . .

On that note, though.  Everyone is a beginner at the beginning.  Don't report because the photograph sucks.  Only report if it violates the rules.
