And now we return to regularly scheduled posting… Bucket list post #12

The absence over the last few weeks is due to it being the end of the semester and having a million and one things to do. I’ll be back to regular posting next week. (And have a few more images to show, too). This time it’s “Attend Tornoto Internatonal Film Festival“. This takes place every year in September and looks incredible. I’m trying to convince myself that going next summer is a good idea…  The films that won awards at this year’s festival are here. Their Youtube channel page is here, where you can watch trailers and previews.

Have you ever been? Did you like it? Would you go again?

Geraldine Lamanna – Powder Dance (Photoshoots I’ve loved #19)

I’ve been so behind on my blogging schedule at the moment, I’ve been so busy. *Regularly scheduled posting will resume shortly* (haha). Anyway, apologies and bad jokes aside, this week I’m going to talk about “Powder Dance” by Geraldine Lamanna. This series of photographs is amazing. She photographed dancers and used powder to accentuate the power and movement of the dance itself. Lamanna coated a dance instructor and her students with powder and let them show their moves to the camera. The resulting photographs are supposed to show “echoes” of movement. Compositionally, these photographs are perfect, the composition draws you in to the middle of the frame, to the dancer’s face. The lighting is great, spotlights illuminate the dancers and the powder separately so the viewer can see both equally well.ImageImageImageImageImage

Photoshoots I’ve loved #10

 

ImageImageImage

This week on my tenth “photo shoots I’ve loved” post, I’m going to focus on a fashion story shot by Eric Guillemain for Numéro Tokyo May 2012 featuring the pink-haired beauty, Charlotte Free. The shoot is tough but girly and soft-focused at the same time, it emphasises a heavily adorned wardrobe and pink and white are the dominant colours, contrasting and offsetting the gurney, tough pose and makeup.

What do you think about this shoot? Is it too much?

Monday post series #9: photoshoots I’ve loved

This week on the “Photo-shoots I’ve loved” series is “Wahkan, An Other Afghanistan” shot by French photographers Fabrice Najari and Cedric Houin. This is a series concentrating on Wahkan, a province in Afghanistan. The photographers first photographed their subjects with Impossible Project instant film and then handed them the Polaroid to photograph them again. The photographs of the subjects themselves are in black and white, while the Polaroid is in color. This emphasizes the photograph and, I think, the fact that most of these people have never been photographed before, or have even seen a camera. Adding to this is the fact that in some photos, the subjects are looking away or hiding their faces as though embarrassed or afraid, others stare straight into the lens determinedly.

What do you think of these images? Is it fair that some subjects look physically uncomfortable having their photograph taken and the photographers proceeded with it anyway?

Monday post series #8: photoshoots I’ve loved

 

Apologies for not posting on Friday. I was mega busy filming and I didn’t have a chance to sit down and write a post. Anyway, without further ado, here’s the eighth post in the “Photo shoots I’ve loved” series (can’t believe I’ve done this for two months already…). This week it’s “Calla Lily” by JP Terlizzi. This is a fine art photography series on a lily (obviously ;)) and it’s amazing. The photographs are lit by a single flash unit and are in black and white. They depict one single lily in a new, fresh, unfamiliar way.

Monday post series #7: photoshoots I’ve loved (Factory Fashion chanls Andy Warhol)

This week its Factory Fashion’s tribute to Andy Warhol. This is amazing. The models are carbon copies of the iconic star. The colourful backgrounds and key lighting emphasise the white wigs that all the models are wearing.

What do you think of these androgynous looks? Did they go “too far”?

Friday post series #7: bucket list

 

This week on the bucket list series, post 5, it’s “get something pierced”. I already have eight ear piercings (and one tattoo, but that’s another story ;)). I got my lobes pierced first when I was 15 and then just went from there. I got my cartilage pierced on the top of my right ear and after a bad breakup I wanted a change so I pierced each lobe twice more. My boyfriend paid for my scaffold piercing for my 20th birthday (the first of my birthdays we were together). I’m currently stretching out (gauging) my innermost lobe piercings.
Anyway, on to the actual post… I want to get my nose pierced. I think everyone should get SOMETHING pierced at some stage, even if it’s just your lobes once, they look great and you can just take them out if you’re sick of them. I just think nose piercings look great, you can have a ring in them or a stud, which is more conservative. (I don’t think my mother would be very pleased with me though!).

Do you have any piercings? If so, where? Do you like them? Do you think piercings are tacky?

Monday post series #6: photoshoots I’ve loved

 

This week it’s Michael Ostermann’s fashion illustrations. These are amazing, they are both disturbing (some models have their mouths sewn shut) and beautiful at the same time. The digital effects Ostermann used contrast with the model and give a surreal look to the photos. A crown of thrones in some photos point to a Christian theme.ImageImageImageImageImage

What do you think of these? Did Ostermann go “too far” when manipulating these?
