Impressive photos!!

I tried to do a few mirror photos while in my London hotel in January but they didn't turn out too well atall.

Love the larger versions too, very nice. Your hair is very interesting like that too. Everytime I see someone expressing themselves with a camera like you did, I just get the biggest itch to do the same, to get creative with black and white photography. I lack content and a subject unfortunatly, i'd love to do some still life shots, I see so many in the LJ group I have on my friends list.
Art, design, graphics, all good stuff that I need more of. I saw a photo of a graphic design studio earlier and thought it would be a great place to work. Prehaps I'm missing out on something.

I'm interested in the creation process if you feel like explaining. Well done.

Merci..

Though these were taken while waiting for Max to call me to meet him at the tube station. I was alleviating my boredom.. so I'm not sure quite how expressive they are. I don't claim my photos are art or that I'm a photographer. I'm just.. a person who takes photos, sometimes of herself. :P

I think you'd be great at photography. From what I've seen of your website and other things you've created you have a very good artistic eye. I think it's fascinating to see the world through my friend's eyes as well. See what they see as interesting.

Creation process is fairly simple. Digital camera, regular room lighting (couple lamps, overhead light), flash (for some of them), set the photos as greyscale in photoshop, then play with the brightness/contrast until you get the desired effect. I like color photos just fine, but for some photos black and white is much more striking and interesting to me.

Black and white is very stunning. We have some common interests and I like what I've read of your journal so far. Check mine out and drop me a line sometime.

who says camming isn't about vanity? (kidding:)

Very neat indeed. I like the second, thought the first has something as well.. Can't put my finger on it.

It is about vanity to a degree. Though I never expect to get comments on photos of myself and I am always surprised when I do.

Thanks. I like the first one because of the contrast between all the white space and the dark blob that is me. I also look rather goth and miserable. :)

it looks like there's the beginnings of an ever-so-slight wry smile peeking through in the second photo. i don't know if that was intentional, or if it even happened at the time you took the photo, or if i'm just making it into what i want it to be. i dig it...regardless of the explanation.

thanks lad :)

It probably was the start of a smirk or smile of
some kind. I'd like to play with facial expressions sometime.. mostly because I look fairly serious in most of my photos.

these are amazing.

and i completely understand your stance on the whole "i take photographs but i'm not a photographer" thing. on my bio section of my page i have this:

And she wrote poems.
(but never called herself a poet.)
And she took photographs.
(but never called herself a photographer.)


you have more room to make mistakes when you are shoved in a label such as a "photographer". you know what i mean?
