Trials and tribulations of Gutenberg

I had to switch over to Gutenberg, or have my website rebuild. So now I am learning the new program, how it works, or doesn’t. I ask your patience while I learn, and adjust my thinking. Just go to show that learning never ends at any age. It’s good for the brain as well especially as one ages, those pathways to the whole you need maintenance. Similar as when I had the stroke, needed to rebuild new pathways to the whole me, though not quite as well as before. Knew those old pathways like the back of my hand I had used them so long. Now I have to pick my routes carefully, feeling out the terrain as I go.

Well that is my underlying problem exacerbated by an aging brain. So I will get proficient as I can for now I am happy to even post in the block editor.

Hiatus for August

I have been on a kind of summer hiatus, too hot to do much here in Texas, but sit under the air conditioning. Oh and sending out email looking for a model to work with. I seem to have gotten one from Austin to come down. Will let you know, that couple took a look at the map, and decided not to pose for me. I was so looking forward to shooting my first male nude, and a bit of their sexual relationship.

I also got a model for a friend of mine to paint. She a wonderful body painter who will be here in November for a competition. So I’ve been busy with art and not with the blog. I will make amends in the fall. Summer bring us cloudy morning, and blazing clear skies the rest of the day, so not good for product shooting. I’m talking about the mugs of mine, too many bright spots on each mug. But I did get a chance to practice with the backgrounds. Now I wait for those cloudy day that will come.

In the Family Plot

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.

Date’s Matter

 

Playing with rope ideas with my favorite model, Jean Dawson.  Cross-processed, and out of date film…, love the starkness of the image, that brutal hard light.

That the magic has happened, it’s sitting there waiting to be processed. That part of the equation happens at the lab far away. About 10 days till I get a rough idea of what I have gotten; knowing that these scans mean nothing. All told 30 days to get the master scan back from the lab. Only then do I get my hands on the final image of this scan.

Overall I am very pleased with my exposure, held the details in the window. The knot holds-up well, many years since my tying days. A very patient model here as I fumble with remembering long ago combinations.

Image deserves a higher quality scan to get the colors to balance off her skin tone. Only then will I know what the image looks likes…, what I will have to work with. So not for the impatient, or for those in a rush. Time put into all aspects my work…, the care and feeding of a model, the care and feeding of my mind…, still able to come up with ideas. Then to pull it all off, for that magic to happen in camera. And at 70 you say!
