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.”
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.
I originally planned to use the unaltered image of the river rocks, but as I played around in Photoshop and got my art groove on I fell in love with more “abstract” versions of the photo to put on the shoes. I will probably upload the original work and sell it as a print at a later time…maybe even as a shoe…we shall see….
You can also find the green and orange rocks on other various fun products at my Zazzle store.
