francesca, i really like what you posted! especially the third picture with this mixture of movement and stillness and the clean light and dark colours.
you should be proud

thanks, urban! it's true..i do like neutrals. i find that in other people's photography, really vibrant, saturated colors looks amazing..i've just never really enjoyed it in my own work. with that said, i'm going to do a photo shoot this summer and i'm going to try vibrant film..so we'll see how it turns out!

thanks again for your kind words

Love your stuff Francesca! I am a big fan of the ambiguity that permeates those images.

Thanks for the Welcome!

Well certainly the the second shot on the second post is a little thin, in terms of exposure, but I guess that could be the tranny/neg/print, or scan of said medium. Are these purely fashion or do they have an intention? Are you trying to communicate a mood or theme through these shots?

^ it's most likely my scan..the neg is a bit thin, but i was sort of going for that kind of lighting...i wanted her to be hiding a little. i used all natural lighting, no hotlights or anything, and while there is a ton of light in that stairwell, i think it was overcast, so i knew i wasn't going to get any harsh lighting, but it ended up being exactly what i wanted.

anyway, i don't think they're purely fashion shots...you'll notice that the models aren't wearing like, really exciting clothes or anything. i'm really interested in angles, light and shadow, colors... stuff like that when i shoot and i was going for sort of awkward positions or positions that would seem out of the ordinary. i'm still working on more from this series that i haven't shot yet...maybe the complete series would be easier to see. in general, my first instinct when setting up shots isn't what the mood is but what it's going to look like. maybe you could call it a physical rather than emotional relationship..but after i see all the images together, moods come out and they start speaking to me. i think anyone who takes pictures could say that it's a process that doesn't end when the shoot ends. it's a pretty long relationship.

it's been a long time since i've actually shot a person deliberately...meaning, not at a live rock show or covertly something. other fashion stuff i've done has been on dress forms or mannequins, and other times it's been people i didn't know (the girl is a friend and the boy is my boyfriend) so it was a totally different situation. i love shooting people i know because i find it easier to get them to do really weird stuff..although shooting people i don't know is also really fun.

do you take pictures too?

I do indeed, although it seems I will need to upload them to the web before I can put them on this forum...
