Stark Beauty – Zazzle’s Best

I recently opened up a new Zazzle store featuring my photography work. My plan was to post about the opening of the site once I had more content up, but then something changed my mind…

On Saturday my canvas print of “Stark Beauty” appeared on Zazzle’s “Today’s Best” page for September 15th, 2012. Needless to say I was surprised and excited! =)

This is the second time I’ve received this little honor, the first being bestowed upon my lovely “Hi. – Monster” mousepad.

Hi.

And below are the other images I have up in the store right now.

Hopefully, I’ll be adding a few more photographs and products later this week.

Until the next time….

Photography: What is Beauty?

Yes, I am back from the dead once again! I’m currently working on some changes for this site, both in terms of content and layout. While you wait I urge you to head on over to my friend David Sprinkle’s photography blog and read an intriguing post on beauty and photography entitled “Watches the Watchers.”

Beauty in Photography

In this particular post David analyzes his style of model based photography after receiving a somewhat harsh critique regarding his lighting and posing techniques. He then submits the following questions to his audience:

“Is it a photographer’s responsibility to make their subjects as sexually attractive as possible at all times? If we remove sex from the equation, and assume some sort of hypothetical beauty without sexuality, is it a photographer’s duty to maintain that beauty at all times?” -David Sprinkle

I highly suggest taking a journey through Pulse Depravity to become fully acquainted with David’s visually stark work. Then, go to his post and leave your answer to his thought provoking examination.

An Update!?!?! WTFOMGLOLZ!?!

It’s a content update folks!

Yea, I know…it’s been a while…

Anywho, the Film page is FINALLY live! Yay! Right now only my most recent film related work is posted, but I hope to get some older movies up in the near future.

Also, one new photo was added to the Portfolio section of the site. You can either head over there or simply look below this text to see one of my personal favorite photographs.

This is one of those perfect shots…the kind where you open the file in Lightroom and realize that the photo is perfect straight out of the camera… <3

 

Life is busy with work and film projects, but I really do hope to have another update here soon. Until then…Enjoy! =)
