28-01-2005, 05:21 PM
MariusvZyl made me post some of my "work" so as to ebcourage everyone to post photography here on threedy.
There's nothing special I can show but i'll post something anway. Open for criticism as always. :)
1.1, 1.2: Photos of Forum resident Sessy. They are a couple of years old. What I liked about them was the somewhat eerie mood.
Analogue Revueflex, 40mm Lense don't recall any details, I'm afraid.
I've got to run now but I'll post some more later.

Hey Chris. Thanks for posting.
The pics look good in B&W. The way you cropped / composed it in close and the narrow fov. on the right one creates a lot of tension.
I hope you got the model's permission to post:roll:

I like the photo(s) in a artistic point of view. I almost got the feeling that the photos comes from an surveillancecamera. But that looks like a hell of an unhappy girl you shooted there :D
I have to say I like it, even tho it is a very strange image with no respect to angels and sharpness.
Without the secound image it would just been nothing remarkebel, but those pics togheter makes the post intresseting in a strange kind of way :D
Thumbs up, and I just have to see somthing more from you to make my mind up :D

Marius, I actually didn't ask for the permission, but I will remove the photos, should Liz tell me to :)
ludenhud, thanks for the flowers. It is a bit of an experimental series. The originals are in colour and actually there were three photos but to present them here I decided to group them in two and mirror one of the photos to increase the effect.
Here's another one which I didn't ask persmission for because I haven't seen the girl in a long time. She's been a friend no more and I'm posting this photo here because i think it's pretty good.
It was taken with a digital camera, but I don't reall the model.

Another older shot, taken shortly after my grandmother moved to the old folks home (she died a bit more than a year ago though). This is an old TV set she owned. I realie I should've removed the cables but I didn't for some obscure reason.
Taken with the same Revueflex, 40mm lense.

the stomache shot is great

Oh Chris You are a harlequin! You've never showed me this beautiful bellybutton...
I think I know why... :D
Yes indeed great work - You're a genius!
This would look great in a commercial of L'Oréal Paris. :)
Diabolical Greetz' Cthulhu
These are top quality, highly professional photos that would not look out of place from a serious commercial advert (like Cthulhu said, they would fit well for some sort of beauty product). And that T.V is brilliant. Really impressive stuff, its great to see people posting more photographic stuff these days!

Really nice Chris. You defenitely have an eye for this. I love the feeling of the belly ring shot. Nice and sharp and almost tasty...
01-02-2005, 10:22 PM
Come on Chris - I think I could speak for the rest of the audience:
"We would like to see more!"
I know ya got it... :D

Thanks guys, I really apreciate it.
I would show the belly button to you any day, mate, but I only got to see it once. I can introduce you to the piercing though, should you be interested. It comes complete qith a sweet and beautiful girl.
Here's a shot from South Africa, taken with my digi-cam (Olympus E-20p) in Stellenbosch, Western Cape.
I think I took some nice shots in Norway and Sweden in 2002, but never scanned any of them. I should browse them one of these days. In the meantime let me thank you again! :o

What's with this cool B&W-Pic (I don't know if it was in Stellenbosch)?
You know this pic with the fog you added in PS...
02-02-2005, 01:10 AM
I think I know what you're talking about. But the fog was actually really there! :D
I had posted it right after I returned from the RSA.
02-02-2005, 01:22 AM
Ohhh I'm sorry, my fault - I'm dazed and confused... (too much of 'Golden Kaan')
03-02-2005, 01:31 PM
We can never have enough Golden Kaan ;)
Marius, try the Golden Kaan Shiraz, it's lovely and not too expensive (EUR 5.00 = R40).
Cthulhu, here's the shot I think you were talking about. Taken in Kirstenbosch, South Africa's largest botanical garden this is the flank of Table Mountain.
Contrast was enhanced in PS and colour (the little that ws there) removed. This is not actually fog but clouds, allthough there's probably little physical difference between those two anyway.

The place is renowned for the fog and storms. Hot air from the North, Cold air from the West and East as well as the meeting of two ocean currents and oceans makes for interesting weather.
Golden Kaan is a German marketing excercise. KWV really.
Nice photo. Would have been good to still get that effect while not having the whites blow out so much, but that's just me.:D

All of these are to my eyes very impressive, and I thing I noticed with the bellybutton thingy is that the highlight of the sorrounding... er.... landscape is formed like a teardrop. Neat! (and I asume it wasn't PS-edited:roll: )
05-02-2005, 03:18 PM
Thank you very much A N T I!
The belly button photo was not maipulated in PS, we used massage oil ;)
Please assume that all photos I post are touched up in PS to some extent (colour correction, contrast etc.). :)
Marius, if Golden Kaan is KWV that explains why it's so good :)
