I finally broke down & got an Instagram, @slephotography, when I got my new phone the other day. Figure I'll mostly use it for location scouting, my pets (or other cute animals), and some BTS shoots stuff. NO FOOD!
I will be tossing some of them up in my Scraps folder here, especially cool abandoned or decayed locations, with GPS coordinates in case anyone else wants to see them too.
Here's the first batch.
The Adorama print fairy came! I have a big pile of new prints! Sorry it's a crappy camphone shot of them.
They look GREAT and I'm especially delighted with the metallic prints of the plow photo (it looks like it's in 3-D!) and the outdoor nude of Darlyn, which looks like a copper engraving. I'm thrilled with the quality.
The lily prints are for my mom & the neighbor whose garden I shot it in, the rest are all going in frames for shows. :-D
If you want to see these better, check out this post where I show them all off. (And of course they're all in my DA gallery.)
2013, there will be exhibitions!
Fair warning if you're one of the small group of 10 or so who watch pretty much everything I do, I have an edit bug up my butt.
I just finished 4 new images - a scenic cemetery shot, a cool abandoned house, a nifty fetish portrait, and another Maned Wolf image. They're all going up (3 of the 4 as prints, and the Maned Wolf as stock, like the first) after I get some sleep (so early afternoon EST).
I mention this, tho, because I went thru my archives and put about 3 DOZEN images in my "get off your ass and do it" box, so there'll be several more tomorrow & it'll save you time to just wait until more hit the pile. :)
I'll take comments in t
If your work consists of glossy and technically proficient, but utterly uninspired, commercial images that could be interchanged without notice in to any mid grade magazine out there, interspersed with a few "edgy" rip-offs of Terry Richardson's lesser oeuvre, and you say things like "I hate silhouettes, they're always trash" then you prrrrrrrrrrrrrobably have NO credibility on judging whether an image qualifies as "art." Want to snark on the technical aspects? Go for it. However, while the nature of what "art" "is" is largely subjective & everyone has an opinion, representing yourself as an EXPERT on that aspect of photography as a medium
Following up yesterday's entry about Footnoting (https://www.deviantart.com/footnoting). After the behavior there he ended up going thru his "Mary Kelly" entry and hiding practically all of the comments, saying he "realized he was giving doms and abusers a platform for their propaganda." More like he couldn't win any arguments & was simply engaging in personal attacks. I am updating the original entry with screenshots of a last few of his remarks.
So he's followed it up today with this bit of idiocy, amusingly titled "What I have learned thus far," which apparently is "not a damn thing."
EDIT: Some people can't stand having their own stupidity exposed. He's deleted both this
