If technology will allow me to record my own music and create my own art, then I can make my own little world a happier place. My favorite subjects are figures and nature. But I have so much to learn! Thank you for letting me practice and learn here.
(And many thanks to Marie for graciously modelling in spite of my inexpert efforts!)
update (4 year anniversary at FC):
There seem to be two general types of photographic artists: those who seek to CAPTURE an outstanding image and those who seek to CREATE an outstanding image. The former work with spontaneous scenes of nature or people, and minimize the use of post-production editing; the later rely on posed situations and embrace the various editing techniques available.
In defense of photo-editing, let us recognize that a camera is just a tool in a process, and it can no more create a completed picture than a microphone can create a musical recording. And neither the picture nor the recording can actually reproduce what the brain perceives visually or sonically in the real world.
I confess to being an image creator, and my hobby is for my own enjoyment. My creations may not elicit the intended impressions of sensual beauty in the viewer, but the joy is in the effort.
6 year anniversary: no changes in philosophy; maybe a little better at taking pictures...
Some places beyond FC where my photo work has been published:
The Erotic Review's Photographer of the Year Prize 2008: The Book (paperback, ER Books)
The Erotic Review's Photographer of the Year Prize 2009: The Book (paperback, ER Books)
Eight year anniversary – for the past few years I have been exploring more overtly sexual aspects of erotic photography, along with my wonderful model, Marie and her partner, Lloyd. Because these images involve more explicit interplay of male and female energies, they do not appear in FC discussion (these images and commentaries are presented elsewhere).
However, I continue to follow my talented friends here at FC and post photos in the hope of learning and improving my skills. Peace and best wishes, MW.
Thanks for visiting!
