Great Polonaise 2008-12-05 9:40

Kristaps, buddy mate

It would be just wonderful if you would switch more towards photography from, let's say: registration.
In another words: Try to offend me with something that is dirty, sweaty, out of order, and it has as little useful information about the world as possible !!!

In other words: Hit me with a photography !
There is no cursing, no dirty words in your photography. No touching...No smelling...
That awful long lens and the lack of contact...
(I've chosen this photo because at least, in here - the woman is interacting with you..)
But - that's not enough in the people's photography...
Not enough nowadays, that is... Not enough in the world of billions of cameras in everyday use...

She is there posing for the tourists.

Try to use that situation to your advantage.
She will be more than willing to do ..Well..Whatever you ask her to do...
She will allow you to come closer, shoot a dozen of photos from every corner possible. wide angle...Closeups.. Hands... The face
Why not rudely block the other 'photographers' and their cameras...
Why not for the precious several seconds ( or minutes) have her to your own disposition ?
The light over there was not to your favor. Deep shades ( her eyes !!!), sharp contrasts, burnt bricks of the backgrounds...

Rule the word brother, and try to be as offensive with your photography as possible and as often as possible...
At any occasion...

Love, man... Love and women !

Default To Polonaise: shriveled mummby

morning george
today had an opportunity to check out the WS on a better screen and I have to admit: I disagree with it. despite more elegant presentation and composition, the WS renders her into a universal shriveled mummy. the way it's cropped in WS: the shot could have been taken anywhere. i guess, that anchoring part (her skirt and bag) is what I miss most in the WS; that and her character alterered unrecognizably.

it was fun though :)

bear hugs,
