FaceBook censored this image as disagreeing with there guidelines. Why is America so afraid of nipples?
Here is a quick snap of the mugs I got from the lab. I told them after seeing the first one to think artistic. These were not mugs of the kids playing baseball or soccer that you sent to aunt Harriett. These were original work of art that I was selling. Told them to reduce the image by a quarter inch, and increase the space between the images by that same quarter inch. Much much better, except that I wanted the insides black to match the black in the image. Stay tuned.
WTH, I got my first mug back this week, as I figured it needs work. I am getting another one made to different specifications. I had to get it back, see it, hold it, and sleep on it. This is the sort of work that goes into an original piece of art that no one sees. That line is too small between images, the image needs to be smaller so I have a border top and bottom.
Waiting for the new mug that I can’t show either until I approve. FaceBook won’t allow me to show it either, I played enough to know that. I have skirted that line often with good results. Stay tuned.
Tuesday’s Grace was shot in a family burial plot on an old farm. One of my best subjects, lithe, and young.
I am trying out different background mat to see which I like best. These are for eventual prints, although the image will be on a coffee cup soon. Stay tuned!
Brand new treatment, soon to be coffee cup. For a $100 investment in my art you get a coffee cup.
New treatment for an older work: Black Beauty. With the lovely Latina Angel just turned 18 when I met her…, now a mom in the northern wildness!
Many long years ago I was told that my erotic images were not explicit enough for the times. My answer, no matter how explicit I get…, I allow my models some bit of privacy. My images are not a gynecological tour de force, rather some imagination is not only needed, but wanted. Though the use of shadows, movement I want the viewer eye to wander, to search for those hidden gems.
Many of my models dabble in the trade, yet when they see the images I produce they are very impressed. I shoot for the art of my subject, I consider that less is more, to create an alluring image my subjects do not have to be exposed. The imagination has a crucial role, a crucial function for our greatest sex organ we possess…, our mind’s.
I treat the women who pose for me with respect, my work conveys that respect. I ask my models to trust in my skills as a photographer. I ask my model to trust me as a man.
Hand down this is the favorite image to date. “Watermelon Girl” was shot many year ago, the model was 19 at the time. We when down to an arroyo in Austin, that is a drainage area for flash floods. The image was shot for a charity event, a small bidding war erupted over it. I was very pleased, and I got dinner and drinks out of it.
